Why Carriers Outsource Claims — and What It Takes to Be the Right TPA for the Job
Carriers know that claims management is a necessity. Good claims management keeps their business running smoothly while keeping them engaged as partners with their clients.
Claims, however, are becoming increasingly complex in nature, and recent years have seen a spike in claims volume. Natural catastrophes, a global pandemic, supply chain disruptions, and an increasingly interconnected world have all compounded to make claims management that much more complex for carriers.
Having the appropriate resources available to monitor and address claims isn’t as simple as it once was. Setting up a claims management team is one approach, but sometimes carriers are not able to internally manage the volume or types of claims coming in. That is why carriers will make the important decision to outsource claims, which allows carriers to focus on their business needs and creating profitable books of business through their underwriting practices.
When choosing a partner in such an endeavor, carriers should review what needs they are looking to meet.
