Claims Evaluation and Resolution - CLEQ

Overview

A claim's life cycle begins when an incident is reported to the insurance company that might-or might not-ultimately pay a covered claim. Once the incident has been reported, the claim is assigned, an initial reserve is established, and files are set up and assigned to an adjuster. After verifying coverage, the adjuster launches an investigation. Claims investigation is followed evaluation and, ultimately, resolution.

This course focuses on the final two key aspects of the larger claims adjustment process -- evaluation and resolution. Successfully managing those aspects helps manage financial impacts and leads to better claims resolutions and customer relations.
