It’s the Friday GAB A weekly round up of the happenings in the employee benefits industry. Have an update you want to share? Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Either my tracking of events this week was poor due to the flu takin me down or it was a quite week. This week I have three updates to report.
First up, Manitoba Blue Cross introduced pay direct at the pharmacy for the popular Dexcom CGM. This is available for plan members who have CGM coverage and have obtained prior authorization.
Second, RBC has made the LTD claiming experience easier when transitioning from STD. Claimants on STD will not longer need to submit an LTD claim form.
Third, Equitable Life has announced a new bonus program.
Last Up, Pacific Blue Cross has released their updated R&C levels for paramedical practitioners and announced that Heidi Worthington, our Senior Vice President, Chief Revenue Office and Chief Operating Officer, Work & Wellness, will be departing Pacific Blue Cross for an exciting opportunity as President & CEO of YMCA Greater Vancouver.
As always, connect with your local group Account Executive to learn more.
Education Events – if you’re looking for CE credits, Mapol Inc has a session coming up on Feb 1, Equitable Life Feb 9, Connex Feb 10, your local CPBI, and ISCEBS chapters have a good session line up and Benefits Canada always has lots of CE events.
And that’s the Friday GAB.
