How Exdion helped HNI save 30% costs in Policy Checking

An insurance company issued a client an insurance policy that included blanket coverage for multiple commercial properties. A fire broke out at one of the properties, resulting in a financial loss that exceeded the insurance limits. The client had requested policy coverage per property, which was not changed in the final policy. The client sued the broker for misrepresentation and claimed compensation for the loss. 

Put yourself in the shoes of this company. Your company would suffer a huge revenue loss, a severe blow to its reputation and higher customer attrition rates. 

If you want to avoid such slips and gaps, an intelligent policy checking process is the prime solution. Let us understand the process of policy checking and its challenges. 

Policy Checking Process Explained  

Insurance policy checking

Policy checking is a process in which each policy is thoroughly reviewed to weed out errors and identify missing data. This phase is vital for minimizing policy mistakes and oversight to prevent denial of a claim or subsequent disputes and conflicts.  

 Policy checking is a time-intensive process that may get pushed to the backseat when there is a higher volume of policies. If policy checking is done ineffectively, flaws and inconsistencies in the document may end up going undetected. This frequently results in disagreements, client claims being rejected, or even E&O claims. It is a lose-lose situation where the client could lose the claim and the insurer could lose their clients.  

These are some important steps to be included in the policy checking process:  

  • Customer information must be validated, and the policy must be checked for missing or incorrect information. Often, the error could be as simple as a spelling mistake, or an address entered incorrectly.  
  • The next step involves looking for discrepancies between the quote, proposal, and the policy.    
  • The policy document is also examined to ensure that the coverage information is accurate. This includes any requests for inclusions made by the customer. 
  • The policy checker must investigate the missing factors in the premium. The policy is also compared to the previous year's document for any changes in wording that may affect coverage and exposure.  
  • A final scan is performed once the policy is received from the underwriter. This ensures that any changes requested by the client have been evaluated for inclusion and accommodated appropriately. The customer is then given the final policy.  

Challenges of Policy Checking  

Policy Checking is a laborious process

If policy checking is so vital, then why does it get skipped? The reason lies in some of the challenges posed by the process:  

  • As the insurance policies involve complex clauses, only trained professionals will be able to review them. This makes the process more expensive.   
  • Since most of policy checking is done manually, it becomes time-consuming and error prone.  
  • More policies need to be checked in a shorter time frame, leading to a decline in productivity.  
  • Since the insurance industry involves huge amounts of data to be dealt with, most of the data is unstructured, resulting in data loss.   

These challenges of policy checking frequently stymie insurance agencies, negatively impacting their revenue, time and efficiency. Consider a case study to better understand the impact of these challenges and a possible solution to avoid falling into such growth traps.
