Toronto, Ontario – September 18, 2017 – Benefits packages from employers can be confusing and laden with paperwork. Veteran’s benefit packages from Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) can include paperwork that is beyond what some injured or ill veterans can manoeuvre.
Spartan Wellness knows well the challenges veterans face accessing products and services covered by their benefit plan.
“Spartan Wellness was brought to life by nine veterans and two principals who realize there’s a need for proper care and support for our veterans and serving families,” explained Riad Byne, co-founder and CEO of Spartan Wellness. “We feel as veterans we have a duty to serve Canada and, by giving back, we’re stretching tax dollars that support us. By offering outstanding care solutions for veterans and members still serving, we’re assisting the efforts of our government and Veteran Affairs.
The Spartan Wellness vision is to be leaders of positive change by providing services that promote wellness, recovery and life balance for everyone, not just veterans.
Spartan Wellness currently consists of 15 veteran and veteran spouse volunteers and seven paid employees. They privately employ physicians and specialists on a contract basis to ensure clients receive quick and top-notch medical service.
There are no fees or up-front costs to Spartan Wellness clients. Benefit specialists ensure clients are aware of all available options to receive the best care through their existing coverage.
"We’re dedicated to giving a sizable portion of our profits back to reputable Veteran Charity Organizations," Mr. Byne added.
Spartan Wellness assists veterans with documentation, applications, assessments and reassessments for Veterans Affairs Canada. They offer transitional family medicine and assistance with documentation for members of the Canadian Armed Forces who are being medically discharged or retiring.
Online tele-medicine is available through Spartan Wellness for both mental and physical wellness.
Spartan Wellness also offers medical cannabis consultations for mental and physical conditions. Their staff physician can answer questions, address concerns and, where appropriate, provide no cost licensing.
“Many organizations providing medical cannabis access points are focused on profits and individual gain; as founders we want to change the way business is done,” Byne said. “Spartan Wellness isn’t just a medical cannabis access point. We offer many services that, when used together, give the patient the best opportunity to achieve overall wellness.”
