KINGSTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2012) - The Empire Life Insurance Company (Empire Life) has launched a new electronic claims service, making it fast and easy for group insurance customers to submit claims.
Plan members can submit healthcare claims online and be reimbursed within 24 hours.

"Our new eClaims service gives our group customers choice, convenience and control," says Steve Pong, Senior Vice-President, Group Solutions.
