Technology is big news today for insurance companies, agents, and brokers like you, and your clients. In fact, it’s disrupting insurance just as much—or more—than it’s shaking up other industries.

Some of the most prominent insurance technology trends for the future include:

  • Predictive Analysis
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • The Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Blockchain
  • Telematics
  • Chatbots (and more)

But, for many agents and brokers with school clients, the predictions that may mean the most are the ones surrounding claims management.

Claims Management Systems Are a Game-Changer for Schools

Claims management can be an administrative nightmare and also affects your school clients’ bottom line. A recent McKinsey study says that automating claim processes could:

  • Reduce related costs by as much as 30%
  • Improve customer satisfaction by 10% to 15%
  • Reduce adjustment expenses by up to 30%
  • Increase the accuracy of payments by 4%

If you can find an insurance provider or risk management specialist that simplifies the claims process, improves efficiency, and is more cost-effective, you’ll find that it will be easier to form—and keep—relationships with your school and college clients. You’ll offer something significantly different that other agents and brokers don’t. But, finding those insurance providers or risk management specialists can be challenging, except with A-G Specialty Insurance.

At A-G Specialty Insurance, the Future’s Already Here With EGBAR℠

At A-G Specialty Insurance, we’ve been protecting students and student-athletes for nearly 40 years, staying at the forefront of insurance innovation to bring the best accident coverage and service solutions to our insured schools. With so many options out there, we’re proud of our 95% client retention rate. We know this satisfaction has everything to do with our personal commitment to our extremely high standards.

EGBAR is our proprietary claims management system that provides instant access to critical claims information while ensuring security. EGBAR stands for Efficiency Generating Business Automation Resource. EGBAR is a powerful claims management system, and it’s an important differentiator between us and our competitors in the K-12 and collegiate student and sports accident insurance field.

How EGBAR Works

EGBAR combines unparalleled transparency to the claims process with instant online access while ensuring the security of information. With EGBAR, you can view overall claims history, generate reports for comprehensive risk management strategies, or check on a specific claim’s status in real time. As insurtech goes, EGBAR is already light years ahead in functionality and school satisfaction.

Schools and colleges are kept busy managing accidents—not just accidents to student-athletes, but also ones for members of the student body, too. Each accident comes with medical expenses that generate claims. Generally, school business offices (or athletic departments) are responsible for running reports and keeping track of claims, Explanation of Benefits (EOBs), deductibles, providers, and payments.

All these moving pieces can become an administrative nightmare and keep employees from their other responsibilities. Not to mention the room for error is enormous. EGBAR claims management takes care of all of that. As a new policyowner told us when she learned what EGBAR and A-G would be handling, “You all can’t see the smiles on our faces. Wow!”

With EGBAR, everything is handled online. From the first notice of a covered injury the school provides, all their stress is removed. Schools don’t even have to save claims documents into individual records. Just scan it all, upload it, and EGBAR sorts, categorizes and creates the accounts for each injured student. The schools have access to a complete online picture of everything that has happened (and is in the works for that student), all in one place. Just by itself, that is something your school clients will appreciate. But that’s not all that is handled:

  • A-G works directly with providers for filing, billing, and payment.
  • A-G follow-ups on outstanding EOBs and information.
  • A-G and EGBAR give policyholders digital access to see past and pending payment status.
  • EGBAR keeps track of deductibles so that schools can see when they’re met.
  • EGBAR keeps track of any personal health coverage use and payments.

EGBAR also generates all the reports a school needs, including:

  • Real-time EOBs
  • Claims reconciliations in real time, including deductible and claims amounts, what’s been paid, and details including check date and number
  • Pending claims
  • Claims histories, including sport, body part, date of injury, and date of service(s)

For those times when the personal touch is better, schools may want to keep a connection with their preferred providers for certain situations (i.e., they send all of their football players to a specific physical therapist). EGBAR has the capacity to allow for preferred communication options in situations like these. A-G will also be in constant contact with the schools to ensure that all answers are at their fingertips whenever needed and to provide assistance whenever necessary. All they have to do is ask.

Real Results With EGBAR

Talking about EGBAR’s time-saving efficiencies, insurance innovation, and personal service is important but what will really convince your school clients is the money that can be saved.

Because of its close focus on claims management and expansive PPO relationships, EGBAR can help control expenses. In a recent example where an institution transferred to A-G in 2018, A-G saved them $176,000 on claims payments in two years’ time (when compared to 2014 – 2018 with their prior company), with a 25% reduction in premium payments. A-G also concentrates on settling claims fairly for all parties, which goes a long way toward establishing a solid reputation and becoming a respected partner in the industry.
