About the Examination


Where and when will the exam take place?

A trained Health Professional will call you and to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. To meet your needs, the exam may be performed at your home, office or our exam centre.

If I live in a rural area, how can I help to have my medical requirements done as quickly as possible?


In some rural areas, a Portamedic Health Professional may not be immediately available. In situations such as this, it may be necessary for you to be seen at a local clinic or by an examiner from another town who would contact you to arrange a mutual agreeable appointment. We would ask for your cooperation in making such arrangements.

What is included in the exam and how long will it take?


A routine examination includes your medical history, height, weight, urinalysis, blood pressure and pulse. The exam is usually completed in twenty minutes. You may find that some questions may have already been asked of you by your agent.

What kind of medical history will be asked?

The health professional will ask the names and addresses of your physicians and/or hospitals.
He/She will also ask about any illness, surgery, medication or other treatments you may have had.
You may wish to make a few notes in advance to save time during the examination. (For your convenience, space is provided on the back of our brochure which can be downloaded. This downloadable brochure can be printed via the icon below).

Are there any other requirements?

If additional testing is required such as an ECG or blood test, you will be notified in advance.

What is an ECG?

An ECG records electric impulses of the heart. If an electrocardiogram is required by the insurance company, it will be performed at the time of the examination. An ECG is usually completed in less than 10 minutes.
