Emergis & TELUS: New branding for a new partnership



PDF version

Early last year, you may have heard about the joining of Emergis (our Pay Direct Drug card provider) and TELUS. This coming together allowed both organizations an opportunity to provide access to advanced health expertise and communications technology, giving birth to a new sub-brand: TELUS Health Solutions.

A re-branding is now underway. In the upcoming months, all references to Emergis will be replaced by TELUS Health Solutions on all new group benefits materials and communications.

  • As of August 15, 2009, newly issued Pay Direct Drug (PDD) cards will have the current Emergis | assure logo replaced with TELUS | assure to reflect the new TELUS Health Solutions brand. This change is being managed by TELUS.
  • Existing PDD cards for customized clients are not being replaced and will continue to be used until current stock is depleted, at which time the TELUS brand will appear on new cards upon re-order.

Please note that there will be no changes to your PDD coverage or the drug card process and usability, as a result of this change in branding.

If you have any questions about this, please contact your Sun Life Financial group benefits representative.
