P&C insurance

What is P&C insurance?

Property and casualty (P&C) insurance is a broad category of insurance types that cover specific assets and protect the policy owner from being required to pay a third party for damage attributed to those assets (including both property damage and personal injury). It includes a wide variety of insurance products, and new types of P&C insurance continue to emerge in response to technological innovations and other changes in the market.

  • Auto insurance (including both private and commercial auto insurance).
  • Homeowners insurance.
  • Renters insurance.
  • Commercial property insurance.
  • General liability insurance.
  • Professional liability insurance.
  • Workers’ compensation insurance.
  • Business interruption insurance.
  • Travel insurance.
  • Pet insurance.
  • Bike or motorcycle insurance.
  • Cyber insurance.

The world of P&C insurance is constantly evolving. Advances in technology, changes in consumer behavior, and emerging risks have all contributed to this evolution. Here are some of the ways the world of P&C insurance is changing:

  • Technology: Technology is driving significant changes in the P&C insurance industry. Insurers are leveraging data analytics, machine learning, and automation to better understand risk, personalize policies, and streamline claims processing.

How does Five Sigma help P&C insurance companies manage claims efficiently and reliably?

P&C insurance companies depend heavily on effective claims management to drive their profitability. By handling and resolving claims accurately and reliably, a claims adjuster can help prevent their employer’s incurred losses from becoming excessively expensive due to overpayment. At the same time, a claims adjuster who handles and resolves claims quickly and efficiently will achieve high productivity, thus helping their employer keep loss adjustment expenses at a reasonable level.

Traditionally, becoming an excellent claims adjuster was a time-consuming process, requiring significant professional experience and expertise. Today, however, using data-driven claims intelligence effectively can help even relatively inexperienced adjusters to perform like their most successful colleagues.
