Claim Consultancy Services
The purpose of Insurance is indemnification (placing the insured in the same financial position as he was prior to the accident) for those who suffer unexpected losses.
But in practice, this purpose is not achieved in some cases. Insurance Companies sometimes “deny a claim or cut down the claim amount just to see if they can get away with it”. Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India has realized that the expertise of Insurance Broking industry in matters of claim settlement can be availed by policy holders. As a consequence, policy holders, of commercial lines of general insurance business are at an advantage when dealing with insurance companies on account of symmetry of knowledge and information from the broker’s expertise and guidance.
And the Authority has taken firm steps to see that the interests of the policy holders are protected. IRDAI is of the view that it will be in the interest of the policy holders to provide an avenue to obtain more competent advice from Insurance Brokers in the matter of settlement of claims; which was not available hitherto.
As per Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (Insurance Brokers) Regulations, 2018, Gazette of India Notification dated 12th Jan’18, the Insurance Broker is licensed to undertake claims Consultancy services for commercial lines of general insurance business for claims
(a ) not exceeding Rs. 10 corers ,without the prior approval of IRDAI.
(b) exceeding Rs. 10 crores ,with the prior approval of the Authority.
