Empire Life is delighted to announce the signing of an agreement with MedExtra Inc. to provide our Health Concierge Service to customers who add Empire Life critical illness insurance to their employee benefit plans. The agreement took effect May 1, 2015.
The Health Concierge Service is designed as a complement to critical illness insurance—the one provides financial protection, the other provides medical, tactical, and emotional support.
“It’s tremendously helpful, when you are seriously ill, to have someone who can explain what’s happening, help you navigate the healthcare system, accelerate the diagnosis and facilitate treatment. This is what MedExtra does superbly well,” says Janet Jackson, Vice-President of Group Marketing at Empire Life. “They provide a made-in-Canada solution for the Canadian healthcare system that goes well beyond a second opinion service. We couldn’t be more pleased to be working with such a great partner.”
MedExtra is a proudly Canadian company providing unique medical solutions to corporations and individuals from coast to coast since 2003. They also provide the medical concierge service for Empire Life individual insurance customers through the Empire Life Vital Link product.
Empire Life will be launching its group critical illness portfolio later this month.
