About eClaims and TELUS Health
eClaims is a web-based system where healthcare providers can submit claims online on behalf of their patients. The portal is accessible via the internet and offers eligible extended healthcare providers the convenience of capturing and submitting electronic claims to their patient’s insurance company at their point-of-sale.
You can register for eClaims at telushealth.co/eclaims. TELUS Health will then provide you with all of the login information needed to access the eClaims portal. Once you have logged in to the portal and set up your profile, you can use the same login credentials to access eClaims via the mobile app. Simply download the app from the Apple or Android stores.
The service allows you to submit claims or estimates (predetermination of benefits) on behalf of your patients at the point of care.
