Is Babylyon real or spam?

I just got a text message from what claims to be Koodo. 

Subject: See a doctor on evenings & weekends

As you may know, we’re on the same team and TELUS…..See a local ON-licensed doctor at no cost to you - it’s covered by your provincial health care plan. Download today….

If this is in fact Koodo, super interesting and will absolutely check out. That said, with all the spammers in the world today, you can never be too careful. 

My question: Is Babylyon by TELUS actually associated and free for Koodo customers?

It's real. Used it today to get a prescription renewed.

(Note: once you install the app it's listed as Telus health, not Babylon in your app list. I had a heck of a time finding it back to make sure it had the right permissions.)

@CuriousCaitlin Indeed it is! You can learn more here as well: https://www.telus.com/en/bc/health/personal/babylon


@Timo Tuokkola - Awesome to hear! I used it a couple of times recently for that reason as well, and loved how efficient it makes the whole process.
