Phzio Canada's MSK360 virtual physiotherapy platform launches to Manulife Group Benefit Members

OTTAWA, ON, April 8, 2021 /CNW/ - Phzio Canada's MSK360 Therapeutic Platform, is now available to Manulife Group Benefits plan members. The platform will offer Manulife's plan members access to physical health services for virtual musculoskeletal prevention, early intervention and rehabilitation services. MSK360 is another great way Manulife plan members can get the right care at the right time – an important component of Manulife's health by design approach (2). 

Approximately 1 in 5 employees will experience a musculoskeletal condition annually that impacts their ability to perform in the workplace (1). For Plan Sponsors, employees who are struggling with physical injuries, functional restrictions or limited mobility for example see an increased need for treatment programs, accommodations and time away from work. 

Manulife is offering their plan members basic access to MSK360. This includes injury prevention content, early intervention, therapeutic programs and preferred rates for virtual providers, that can be claimed using the plan member's benefits coverage.  

Plan sponsors will have the option to upgrade access to MSK360 for their plan members and provide unlimited virtual evaluations and treatments, ergonomics assessments, and physical conditioning plans.  With this option, plan sponsors will also gain access to advanced MSK360 metrics for pre-disability MSK patterns, utilization, consumption and member satisfaction.   

Details and demos can be accessed at: https://msk360.ca/manulife

Plan sponsor MSK360 upgrades are priced at $1 per employee, per month. 

Curtis Hollister, COO Phzio Canada "we are privileged to be working with forward thinking teams like those at Manulife. Through our unique approach to early interventions, injury prevention programs and effective therapeutic treatments we are working to keep employees physically prepared for work and life. Historically, employers have invested heavily in supporting mental wellness at work, this partnership is a leap forward for the physical health of employees."
