On May 5, the World Health Organization ended the COVID-19 public health emergency, and the insurance industry is now treating COVID-19 claims the same way it treats other claims.
As of July 15, Canada Life will no longer use its Confirmation of Illness (COI) form for COVID-19-related short-term disability claims. Desjardins has waived the requirement for an Attending Physician’s Statement form and accepted a CLHIA Confirmation of Illness form and a positive COVID-19 test in its place.
