Empowering Adjusters with AI: Insights for Informed Decision-Making

6 MINUTE READ

The Benefits of Incorporating AI Into Your Claims Management Process

In the insurance industry, claims adjusters play a pivotal role in a claim’s life cycle, starting with assessing the validity and value of the claim, handling its investigation and resolution, and serving as the direct link between the insurer and the claimant. Their evaluations and customer interactions form the backbone of effective claims processing.

An adjuster’s role is a difficult and stressful one. They handle many concurrent claims with multiple tasks at each on any given day. They are pushed by management for productivity and results, while dealing with people at their most difficult times – when they’re sad, irritated, aggravated, or hopeless, desperate for compensation. The result is often long handling times, occasional human errors on repetitive tasks or out of stress, and suboptimal resolution of claims. This negatively affects the adjuster, the claimant, and the insurer.

However, the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in claims management is revolutionizing the adjustment process and transforming adjusters’ role from moving papers most of their day to strategic decision-making and better customer care.

AI-Driven Efficiency

AI is transforming claims management first and foremost by automating routine tasks, which previously consumed a significant portion of adjusters’ time. These tasks include data entry at FNOL and upon receiving documents, initial claim assessment, communication management, and more. By automating these tasks, AI frees adjusters to focus on more complex aspects of claims handling, such as customer interactions and strategic decision-making.

Enhanced Decision-Making with Predictive Analytics

At the heart of AI-driven transformation is the power of predictive analytics. AI utilizes vast amounts of data to forecast trends, identify patterns, and predict outcomes. This capability when applied to an insurer’s claims data, allows the claims management system (if it uses AI, like Five Sigma’s AI Native claims management platform) to analyze past data, and assign a claim to the most effective adjuster, to suggest likely next steps, to recommend appropriate vendors, and even to advise the course to a fair settlement and its amount. 

AI-driven suggestions ensure that adjusters are supported by a platform that learns continuously, improving its recommendations over time. Adjusters feel more confident that they’re handling the claim in the right way and making decisions that are driven by data and experience. This level of intelligent guidance is crucial for maintaining consistency in claims handling, and keeping the insurance company at the forefront of a competitive market. 

Fraud Detection and Risk Assessment

Fraudulent claims pose a significant challenge to insurance companies, costing millions of dollars in unjustified reimbursements. AI enhances an adjuster’s ability to detect fraud by analyzing discrepancies in claim data and benchmarking against historical norms. 

Comprehensive Access to Data

A cornerstone of effective claims management is the adjuster’s ability to have comprehensive visibility and immediate access to all pertinent claim-related information. Visibility significantly enhances productivity. By consolidating all data into a single claim dashboard, adjusters can view and grasp the complete history of a claim quickly, and manage it effectively. 

AI can assist visibility in multiple ways. One example is in communications regarding a claim. With AI, Five Sigma’s platform processes and analyzes all communications related to a claim. AI efficiently logs, transcribes and summarizes all forms of communication, such as phone calls, video calls, chats, emails, or text messages. Such automatic capturing and documentation helps compliance, and provides adjusters with a summary of past interactions and sentiment, ensuring great customer service. 

Customer Satisfaction 

By automating the routine tasks and enhancing decision-making, AI allows adjusters to save valuable time for themselves and the insurer’s customers. This time saved can be redirected towards enhancing claimant interactions—providing better customer service, which is personal, courteous, fair and transparent. 

Prioritizing customer interactions, keeping them well-informed, and accelerating the claims handling significantly boosts customer satisfaction. At this moment of truth, when the customer is looking to the insurer to deliver on its promise to assist and cover the damage, AI plays an important role in making it happen effectively.
