Worst insurance company ever

on 2021-02-14 13:10:07

I was not aware of the 12 month rolling period for purchasing orthotics, I purchased a set 2 days prior to my 12 month term. I fought with them over many conversations and ended up needing to write a letter to appeal the situation. They told me it would be resolved in 2 weeks, after almost 2 months of constantly calling and getting an update on the status I got a letter in the mail that looked like an automated response. Pretty much an F-off letter, thanks for wasting your time. I was shocked my appeal was declined because of 2 days, and with covid times where we are all struggling, I would not be re-imbursed for the $500 because of my purchase date. Technically my orthotics arrived after the 12 month period, but shocked how incompassionate this company is, while a pain to deal with, which has come up more on multiple occasions. If you have a choice, do not choose Manulife!

wants your money and doesn't pay

on 2020-12-26 02:07:32

Bought travel insurance back in 2016 and my body got acclimatized coming from a cold winter country to a blazing hot tropical get away, my nose has been bleeding for several days and had to go to the ER. called their cx service so i can get a claim on my hospital expenses, got all the receipts and invoices from the hospital only to be told that I would need to have an affidavit of a lawyer. You kidding me? They only want your money but makes up all these excuses so they wouldnt have to pay you.

Recently, i decided to give them another chance, bought a flipping $300 coverage for travel insurance for my wife, effing up til now I haven't heard from them after we submitted our claim.

would NEVER EVER EVER get this scammy insurance anymore.

Worst place for a mortgage

on 2020-11-05 08:03:42

Do not use Manulife! Terrible customer service. Reuested a mortgage discharge amount and had to call them 5 times for them to finally send it. Wouldn't respond to our new bank we are dealing with for our new mortgage. Quoted us a price to payout our mortgage and raised it $5000 in less than 2 months. This bank is awful. Avoid it at all costs
