About Claims Examiner

What does a Claims Examiner do?

It is our duty as Claims Examiners to receive claims from policyholders, check the claims and ensure that the information received is correct, and then determine whether the claims are covered within the agreed policies. We spend much of our time working via telephone and mail in the office. It is our responsibility to talk with insurance agents, other companies, and policyholders to develop a mutual working relationship. We review the accident reports and medical bills as well as consult insurance specialists. We mostly deal with cases in which the loss values are relatively low and report finding to senior examiners.

Core tasks:

  • reporting cases of higher claims to the senior examiners
  • making phone calls and maintaining mail communications
  • ensuring a good working relationships between insurance agents and companies
  • checking the information received from clients to ascertain it and make necessary actions

This is so inaccurate! No one I know has been in a job that long before they get to Claims Examiner. Sounds like a made-up statistic to me!

people are the most expensive line item on the budget sheet. Too many companies hire as few people as possible to save money, and overload pending's expecting it will get done even if 10 hour days are the norm. On salary, it doesn't cost any more to put in a 50 or 60 hour week. And if you keep up, the reward is more reassignments from those who cant keep up. claims ebb and flow, and insurers used to hire for the busy times so that when it slows down, we can catch our breath, finish reports, or give more attention to claims that require it. speeding thru claims only leads to mistakes - a slippery slope. lower inventories equals lower turn over.
