  4. Claims Practice (M85)

    Claims Practice (M85)

    The objective of this unit is to develop knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles and practices of claims practice and how claims are handled.

    The default Enrolment option for this unit includes:

    • Latest version of the core learning content, in digital format only, delivered  on RevisionMate.
    • Assessment entry.

    Claims Practice (M85) considers the practical aspects of handling a claim; from receipt to settlement (whatever that means in each case).  It deals with the rules within which the claims handler must operate, as well as explain those of their duties which do not relate directly to the customer, e.g. the setting of claims reserves and ensuring that reinsurance and other recoveries are made.

    Not all claims arise directly from the insurer's own policyholder. Some will come from persons, third parties, who have a problem with the policyholder, having experienced a loss because of their actions. We will see the law behind such claims and how to settle them. Some of these claims may end up being dealt with in a court of law. Consequently, they must be dealt with in a certain way to comply with the law and court procedures and this study text explains this.

    Finally, we will look at what to do when a customer is not satisfied with how their claim has been resolved, what rules apply and the techniques of dispute resolution.

    Building a successful career in insurance

    This course is ideal for claims handlers and for those looking to gain knowledge and understanding of claims practice. Claims Practice (M85) counts towards a Diploma in Insurance. It may also count towards the Advanced Diploma in Insurance.
