Child Dental Coverage Declined

 
(2.0 out of 5 stars)
by Shannon Dec 20, 2019
...My husband has company benefits with Empire. I submitted a claim after my son's first dental appointment that came back denied. I called to learn about why it was denied, and they do not pay for dental appointments for children under two. Children are supposed to start going to the dentist by one year old and go every six months just like adults. I called back my son's dentist to pay out of pocket and told them what the Empire told me. The dental office had never heard of an insurance company that doesn't pay for children's dental appointments before the age of two. I am back to work now, so thankfully I am with another insurance company and I know the next appointment will be covered. I gave them a two as the lady I talked to was very pleasant. She is a mother who agrees that this policy is stupid...

Did you know that if you are a 35-year old female, a term life insurance policy for 10 years with coverage of $500,000 will cost you around $15-$20/month? Getting your life insurance quote today will allow you to lock-in a great rate.
 

Trash insurance company

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)

...These guys are total frauds and should be shut down. Try everything possible to get out of paying out any claims. They also just decide not to cover certain accreditations of medical professionals without any good reason. Terrible customer service and horrible wait times yet they expect you to send them personal details about your medical records immediately or threaten to close your file without reimbursement...

empire life insurance company

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)

...This Company is a complete joke and their employees too. They lie right to your face. The customer service basically laughs at you and gives you a snotty attitude. They talk to you like you're stupid when they are the stupid ones. They take forever giving your benefits back and make up all these lies on how they didn't receive the paperwork or wait weeks to tell you they need something else, so your claim takes even longer. Empire life is a JOKE and your business needs to be burned to the ground with all your shady employees with it. Never dealing with this useless company again...

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.

Worst benefits company ever

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by vigearshifter Dec 12, 2017
...I have had nothing but problems with this company since my company switched to Empire Life in March 2017. They claim they don't receive paperwork, don't respond to your multiple requests when something is sent, deny paying even though the dentist has sent the information twice now (mailed and faxed). Very bad customer service attitude! Expect a doctor's referral even if you have been going to the physiotherapist/massage person for years. WORST COMPANY I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH!!!!!...

Did you know that if you are a 30-year old male, a term life insurance policy for 20 years with coverage of $200,000 will cost you around $19/month? Getting your term life insurance quote today will allow you to benefit from a great rate.
 

Long term disability

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Frustrated Apr 20, 2017
...This company is all about taking your money but giving nothing in return. No wonder they sit on millions of money - never paid out for ltd, took them months to review a claim. Have 5 specialists with the same diagnosis and their reason for denial diagnosis hasn't changed. Really. Has a lifetime injury which prevents him from working and they say he's denied ltd. so don't pay thousands of dollar to this company they will keep it and give you nothing in return...

The coverage is very limited

 
(2.0 out of 5 stars)
by Mr T Feb 15, 2017
...Their coverage is mediocre, you have to make sure your provider is registered with the right credentials. Even if you find them on their search box in Empire Life website, it doesn't mean they're registered. It's means someone logged the provider info in their system, but Empire Life doesn't clear the information even if it's wrong. Therefore the only way to find your provider registry, is to go to the official website (i.e. RMT, for massage), and search a list of providers there. Many times I found myself paying a lot more on the service I used. Empire Life normally refund a percentage, ranging from 40% to 70%. You just have to pray for the reviewer not to tag you enough excuses not to reimburse you the amount (it's never 100%, always below 70%. Quite Random sometimes). Customer service is not great too. They reply after a couple of days via email, but never answer your questions properly. Pretty awful to be honest...

Did you know that one in three Canadians, on average, will be disabled for more than three months before they turn 65? Get a disability insurance quote today to make sure your income is secure, even when you are temporary disabled.
