Continued treatment while on claim

Canada Life has advised that they are flexible and are looking at how they can best support members and any barriers they are facing to support the requirements of their claim. However they will continue to review claims based on individual circumstances. Therefore, should you have concerns about barriers facing your prescribed treatment plan during this time, contact Canada Life, Senior Ford Disability Specialist- Trish Edgar Edgar for assistance.
