According to Canadian Life and Health Insurance Facts, health and life insurance providers paid out approximately $98 billion in benefits to Canadians last year alone. To be a part of that statistic, you need to know how to properly submit a claim to your insurance provider.
At Group Enroll, we’re proud to be partners with Empire Life, which provides generous group benefits packages to businesses nationwide. If you are a current or future Empire Life plan member, here are the various ways you can file an Empire Life claim.

Submitting an Empire Life Claim Through your Provider’s Office
Some healthcare professionals can legally submit group insurance claims on your behalf, such as dentists, chiropractors, and vision care providers. All you have to do as a plan member is present your Empire Life Insurance card and ask your healthcare provider to submit a claim for you at the time of your appointment.
From there, a few different things could happen. One possibility is that the portion that Empire covers in your existing coverage plan is immediately deducted from your total. Another possibility is you may pay the full amount that day but be reimbursed within 24 hours. This process alleviates the need for you to fill out an Empire Life online claim form after every visit to your healthcare provider.
Submitting an Empire Life Claim Online and via Mobile Device
Submitting an Empire Life online claim is an easy and stress-free process, thanks to the company’s real-time adjudication process. That means that the instant you submit a claim, you’ll know how much you are getting reimbursed.
In most cases, reimbursement payments appear in your bank account within 24 hours, one of the fastest turnaround times in the group insurance industry.
eClaims can be filed through Empire Life’s member website, Empire.ca, by following the prompts to submit a claim online. To get your reimbursement quickly, make sure you are signed up for the direct deposit option.
The Manulife Group Benefits Login portal provides quick and simple ways to submit your medical, dental and other claims. We’ve simplified the process here.
Submitting a Blue Cross Claim by Mail
Depending on the type of Empire Life claim form you are submitting, you may be unable to file it electronically. In this instance, you will need to submit through the mail. On the Empire Life website, you will be able to fill out a claim form.
After printing and signing the document, you should also ensure that you attach any receipts or additional documentation that Empire Life may need to process your claim. This information is listed towards the bottom of each claim form. Claims must be filed no more than 12 months after the service has been rendered, or they will be declined.
