Winnipeg, MB, September 1, 2021. . . The Canada Life Assurance Company (Canada Life), a subsidiary of Great-West Lifeco Inc., has completed the previously announced acquisition of ClaimSecure Inc. (ClaimSecure).
The completion of this acquisition increases the number of plan members served by Canada Life by 1.25 million individuals, including plan members and their dependents, with annual claims payments of more than CAD$1.2 billion. It also substantially enhances Canada Life’s presence in the third-party administrator (TPA) and third-party payor (TPP) business segments. In addition, Canada Life becomes the first major Canadian insurer to own and operate a pharmacy benefits manager with national claims-paying technology capabilities.
ClaimSecure will continue to operate as it does today and will remain a distinct entity in the Canadian benefits industry. Over time, both Canada Life and ClaimSecure will benefit from sharing products, services, technology and distribution models.
