Don't go with Manulife

by Jason Huang on Dec 4, 2023
1 out of 5 stars

I swear I've lost 10 years of my life dealing with Manulife...
They never process the claims correctly and it takes them 2 weeks to process any of my claims. I can never let them process my claims and automatically claim the remaining unpaid portion through HCSA because they never process the claim correctly and end up spending way more money on the HCSA which you would have to spend even more time to get them to re-process and make the changes. That would be fine if they process at a reasonable speed but that's not even the issue... They would NEVER DO IT!!!! If their claim is not processed right, I would have to contact them for over a month straight to get a response and actually get things done right.
Questions are never answered, I have all my customer service conversation transcripts and they always say they forwarded my questions to their teams and they would contact me with the answers but I literally never hear from them again after that.
I would seriously pull my teeth out than to willingly choose them as a provider. I literally have no choice but to use them because my employer chose them.

Ripped Off

Part of the Manulife extended health involves mental health services. Professional services: Registered Counsellor and Master Social Worker.
I went and saw a REGISTERED COUNSELLOR because, allegedly, it is covered. I saw a previous counsellor for this reason, and it was covered without issue. Great. But because the counsellor this time also had "MMFT" in his designation, Manulife saw a convenient out and willingly chose to not reimburse me $300 for two separate sessions even though the invoice explicitly stated it was for personal reasons and not family or marriage related purposes.
I called their support to complain about this obvious crony behavior. I asked to speak to the manager directly, they refused. Their support agent filed a case, gave me a number, and said billing would correct this misunderstanding. THREE WEEKS LATER I had not heard back from them despite the claim email received stating they would get back to me. I call Manulife support again, and they have absolutely zero proof this claim was ever filed on their back end. They have no idea what I am talking about. Presumably, the support agent fabricated this claims email and claims number just to get me off the phone.
After further argument, they simply refused me on the basis of the counsellor having 'MMFT' designation in his name and NOT the explicit purpose stated in the submitted invoice for the reason why I saw this counsellor.
Manulife is like any other insurance agency and will rip you off the second they see the opportunity to.

Did you know that mortgage insurance is the same as life insurance but more expensive and offers less protection? By cancelling it and getting life insurance, you would typically save around 30%-40% for the same coverage.

Poor service all around

I have had nothing but bad experiences with Manulife in every way. They do not directly bill for anything and will always have to pay first and hope that their poor customer service will get to you eventually. They may send a reply stating you will hear from them within 7 to 10 business days, which is ridiculous, to begin with, but I am now on day 11, 3 emails in and have not heard from anyone as of yet. If I call I am waiting a ridiculous amount of time as well. Do they only have 1 customer service representative? I will never deal with Manulife again and will be sharing my experiences with anyone that will listen.

Worst customer service ever!

Everything is hard to do or find on their site. You can't contact them directly because their call centre is impossible to get through to and if you send them an email they say two business days to respond but it's more like two weeks, if then. Even the simplest things like changing your language preference which should be super simple are hard. On top of that, they cover less than previouse insurer and it's hard to find out how to submit estimates or find out why they disallowed charges.
