Stop loss insurance allows employers who self-fund their employee benefit health plans to protect themselves from assuming full liability for claims.

“We are pleased to have entered into a relationship with Empire Life, a prominent Canadian insurer with proven expertise in a wide range of insurance and investment areas,” said Symbility Health president Shannon McShane-Reed. “With their comprehensive stop-loss protection solution, Empire Life will help ensure the long-term viability and sustainability of our clients’ benefit plans by balancing employee needs with plans’ financial security. This is especially important in today’s reality of escalating drug costs.”
