TELUS Health eClaims Provider Portal
Streamlining paperless claim submissions for insurers with faster payments, greater accuracy, and increased plan member satisfaction.
The process for submitting claims can often be long and tedious, with plan members and healthcare professionals expressing frustration over delayed reimbursement and the resulting out-of-pocket expenses.
An online portal for point-of-service claims processing
Designed to facilitate access to extended healthcare for all Canadians, TELUS Health’s eClaims solution allows healthcare providers to submit claims on behalf of patients immediately after the healthcare service has been provided.
With the eClaims Provider Portal, TELUS Health offers a secure system that directly links plan members and insurers to streamline point-of-service claims processing, for faster payments to providers and increased accuracy.
A unique multi-insurer platform to optimize reach to extended care providers
Already used by over 20,000 extended healthcare providers and counting, the interactive web-based service optimizes the accuracy and efficiency of the claim submission process, resulting in increased productivity for insurers, plan members and healthcare providers. As the leading service provider to Canadian health insurers for more than a decade, TELUS Health has set the standard for eClaims with the only multi-insurer platform on the market today.

How it works
The TELUS Health eClaims Portal uses a centralized login for the electronic submission of claims. Depending on the insurer, patients can receive, at the point of service, a confirmation in real-time of their coverage and the amount they must pay. The healthcare provider can then determine whether to receive the payment directly, or have it made to the patient.
Key features include:
- Online registration of healthcare providers through the TELUS Health website
- Inquiry tools to view past transactions
- Claim payment assigned to either healthcare professional or the patient *
- Support for insurer direct deposit in cases where payment is assigned to healthcare provider *
