Understanding Insurance Claims

According to Investopedia, an insurance claim “is a formal request by a policyholder to an insurance company for coverage or compensation for a covered loss or policy event. The insurance company validates the claim (or denies the claim). If it is approved, the insurance company will issue payment to the insured or an approved interested party on behalf of the insured”.

Claims management is just as important as any other aspect of a business because a paid insurance claim indemnifies a policyholder from financial loss. It may assist the policyholder in recovering the costs of medical goods and services, physical damage, death, and liability for the ownership of dwellings (homeowners, landlords, and renters), as well as liability resulting from automobile operation.

AN INSURANCE BROKER’S ROLE IN MANAGING YOUR CLAIMS

An insurance broker's main job is to find the most appropriate insurance policy for its clients at a reasonable price. When you hire a broker, it will sift through insurance offerings from a variety of companies to find the best match for you. However, the service of an insurance broker doesn’t end with the purchase. The true test of an insurance broker is during claims. The insurance broker will help you in filing the claim and following-up with the insurance provider for updates.

Although the insurance broker CANNOT guarantee that the insurance provider will pay any amount as settlement, you can be assured that your claim is properly handled and monitored. This means that you can focus on running your business as your insurance broker does all the dirty work. According to the 2020 Deloitte Access Economics research, brokers in the US saved clients an average of 11 hours across the insurance purchase and claim cycle – a value of $230 Million in time savings for business customers.
