Coordinating Two Benefit Plans: Your Benefits and Your Spouse’s Benefits Working Together

If you have benefit coverage through your spouse’s employer, you may receive reimbursement of your eligible expenses from both plans. To apply to have your benefits coordinated with your spouse’s benefits, download the Coordination of Benefits Form.

Follow these procedures to receive the maximum amount of reimbursement:

If the Expenses are Yours

  1. Submit a claim to Manulife with your original receipts.
  2. If you are also covered as a dependent under your spouse’s plan, submit a claim to your spouse’s plan for any unpaid portion of the expenses, with the explanation of benefits Link to an FAQ from Manulife.

Example: You require the services of a physiotherapist. The cost of your sessions totals $200. You submit your claim to Manulife and receive $160 (80% of $200). You will receive your reimbursement with an explanation of benefits from Manulife. Send that along with the necessary forms for submission to your spouse’s plan. You should be reimbursed for the remainder according to the coverage provided under your spouse’s plan.

If the Expenses are For Your Spouse

  1. Submit a claim to your spouse’s plan first, with your spouse’s original receipts.
  2. If your spouse is covered as a dependent under your Worker Benefit Plans, submit a claim to Manulife for any unpaid expenses, with the explanation of benefits Link to an FAQ from your spouse’s plan.
