Jan. 25,
Montreal, Que. – Desjardins Financial Security (DFS) plan members can benefit
from point-of-care online claim submissions via the TELUS Health eClaims web
portal service.

Specifically
designed to accelerate and simplify claims processing, TELUS’ eClaims service
allows allied healthcare providers — notably physiotherapists, chiropractors
and vision care providers, as well as naturopathic doctors, massage therapists
and acupuncturists in certain provinces — to offer their patients the
convenience of point-of-care claim services.

The TELUS
Health eClaims web portal enables allied healthcare providers to submit claims
simply and quickly on behalf of patients who are Desjardins plan members,
thereby saving patients time and accelerating their reimbursement payments.
Healthcare providers already registered with TELUS eClaims can automatically
submit claims directly to Desjardins Financial Security.

“We are proud to offer our plan members and sponsors an
easy-to-use service that simplifies and accelerates the claims submission
process for everyone,” said Jean-François Chalifoux, senior vice-president of
the Group and Business Insurance division at DFS. “We are confident that TELUS
Health’s proven web-based service will be a valuable addition to our 360º
portfolio of services, which we have developed to ensure efficiency and
simplicity throughout the entire claims process.”

"We
are pleased to bring Desjardins’ plan members, a tool that will expedite the
reimbursement of their treatment process through online claims submission,”
said Luc Vilandre, vice-president, Health Benefits Management at TELUS Health.
"We have long recognized the vast cost savings and productivity gains of
receiving online claims, and have remained at the forefront by delivering an
unmatched web-based service that simplifies the administrative process for all
parties, allowing healthcare providers to focus on the health and well-being of
their patients.”

TELUS
Health eClaims, launched in 2010, has already been adopted by many members of
the allied healthcare community, with close to 13,000 providers now on board.
