Welcome back to the Friday GAB. A weekly round up of the group benefits insurance news.
Up this week, Empire Life was welcomed by Exos Wealth Systems Inc as a minority shareholder. I've noticed that as brokerage consolidated has been happening insurers have been getting into the space as well.
Equitable Life made another exciting product announcement. That's two weeks in a row for them. This week is the official go-date (June 19) for the switch to TELUS Health eClaims for paramedical and vision claims
TELUS Health eClaims has an expansive network of health providers across Canada. They have partnerships with more than 70% of all paramedical and vision providers. That means many more plan members can enjoy the benefits of direct claims submission.
Last, earlier this week Sun Life shared they are experiencing another claim submission outage. You can check for updates here
