Help protect your plan - Prevention is key!

Many inappropriate claims happen because of misinformed or misled plan members, or dishonest service providers. Like other companies, we have the necessary procedures in place to handle a fraudulent event when it happens, but the key to success is avoiding getting to that point. Here at Manulife we take a different approach to fraud prevention – a positive and proactive one.

What's better than a cure? Prevention!

When it comes to protecting group benefits plans, the best prevention is fully engaged, well-informed plan members. It is our priority to help plan sponsors inform their plan members on how to use their plan properly. We also work closely with health care providers to build stronger relationships.

Our approach

Building relationships

Helping you inform your plan members on how to use their plan, and working closely with health care providers is our priority. We do this to help protect your plan from misuse and abuse so you don’t incur extra costs.

Engaging members

Fully engaged, well-informed plan members help protect your plan. It’s important members understand that having a benefits plan is a privilege. And proper use of the program is an expectation not a request.

We help you do this!

We connect you with the information your plan members need to make smart choices.

Building relationships

Here’s where our proactive strategy really kicks in. It’s not just engaged and aware plan members that can help protect your plan. We want to help our clients work with professional, ethical service providers.

So, we’ve created an innovative new program, which identifies providers who demonstrate ethical business practices, providing an additional level of protection for your plan.
