Why Insurers Appreciate Electronic Claims Services
Insurance companies process many claims every day, some of which are easier and faster to approve than others. The availability of accurate information about property damage is a determining factor for the speed and ultimate success of insurance claim approval. Find out how the SERVPRO Claims Information Center can support damage claims for properties located in Monticello, LA.
Reliable Access To Information
Insurance agents and adjusters must be able to access information about property damage to process a claim. All of the following elements should be included in a job file:
- First notice of loss
- Documentation of damage
- Forms and paperwork
- An itemized estimate
A notice of loss is required to file an insurance claim, as is documentation of damage taken prior to mitigation. The Claims Information Center makes all of this information available upon processing by a restoration franchise. These digitized materials and other helpful resources can be accessed online at any time through the same convenient service.
Faster Job Progress Updates
As certified professionals make progress on mitigating, cleaning and restoring damage, information about ongoing work is also updated on the Claims Information Center. An insurance agent or adjuster can check in on the status of a job at any time during claim processing.
Industry Standard Performance Comparisons
One of the best features of working with a large restoration company is the availability of information from other jobs in the same area and nationwide. Insurers can compare the performance of a franchise location to industry standards for damage restoration work.
The accuracy and availability of information are the two most important factors for successfully settling any insurance claim. Property owners may prefer to retain the services of restoration professionals who use electronic claims services for restoring homes or commercial buildings in Monticello, LA, and most insurers seek out Preferred Vendors with access to the SERVPRO Claims Information Center.
