Childbirth has been included under our Disability Income Insurance Plan coverage since March 14, 2012.
If as of this date you held Disability Income insurance coverage and delivered a child, you may be eligible to make a claim for retroactive payment, plus interest.
As stipulated under the policy, the claim payment is equal to 6 weeks for a routine delivery and 8 weeks for a caesarean section after your 30-day elimination period.
Please note that if at the time of your delivery, your coverage had a greater than 30-day elimination period, you are likely ineligible to make a claim for retroactive payment as the elimination period would not have been satisfied until after benefits for delivery would have ended.
If you think you may be eligible to receive a retroactive payment plus applicable interest, please contact Mark Venton, Insurance Coordinator at 204-985-5846 or firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm whether you had a routine delivery or caesarean section.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding our policy on retroactive payment, please contact Theresa Oswald, CEO at CEO@doctorsmanitoba.ca.
