With TELUS Health's eClaims solution, Industrial Alliance reinforces its
dedication to providing best-in-class services to its clients
QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 25, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Industrial Alliance Insurance
and Financial Services Inc. is launching today a new claims
transmission option for select healthcare providers: TELUS Health's
eClaims web portal. Group Insurance Members can now file claims
electronically right from their participating healthcare provider's
office - allowing them to pay only the portion of a claim not covered
by their insurance rather than paying the entire amount up-front and
remitting paperwork for a refund. The new option is available for
physiotherapists, chiropractors and vision care specialists, as well as
acupuncturists, massage therapists and naturopathic doctors regulated
by the appropriate provincial or federal organizations.
"Industrial Alliance's goal is to become the best service provider of
group insurance benefits. Offering TELUS Health's eClaims solution
reflects our commitment to superior service and is part of a series of
actions aimed at continuously improving our clients' experience." said
Jacques Parent, Senior Vice-President, Group Insurance at Industrial
"We are excited to extend the eClaims service to Industrial Alliance
members across Canada," said Luc Vilandre, Vice-President, Health
Benefits Management and Payment Solutions, TELUS Health. "TELUS Health
continues to deliver technology that simplifies the eClaims submission
process so healthcare providers can spend more time taking care of
their patients, while making payment easier for those patients. Our
strong relationships with insurance providers and healthcare providers
across Canada enhance the patient experience and help to achieve better
health outcomes for all Canadians."
TELUS is a leader in Canada's claims and benefits management sector,
providing drug claims processing for over 12 million Canadians. TELUS
Health eClaims has experienced rapid adoption by the extended
healthcare community, with close to 19,000 providers now on board.
