Loss control is a risk management technique that seeks to reduce the possibility that a loss will occur and reduce the severity of those that do occur. A loss control program should help reduce claims, and insurance companies reduce losses through safety and risk management information and services.

Combating claims leakage is a huge way to mitigate losses. Traditionally, claims leakage means paying loss or Allocated Loss Adjustment (ALAE) Expenses that either didn’t have to be paid or were paid over the necessary amount. I say there is “soft” and “hard” leakage. An example of soft leakage is a situation where compensability was accepted without a thorough investigation or contact with all parties to a claim. Examples of hard leakage can be very different. One is the continuation of Permanent or Partial Impairment (PPI) after a claimant returns to work. Another can occur when a PPI must accept compensability because they missed a statutory deadline or paperwork filing.
Cost control strategies, plan design and program development are the areas of concentration that have allowed us to positively impact the bottom line for thousands of our partners who strive to significantly reduce their insurance costs. Our solutions are innovative, aggressive and designed to provide maximum program impact.
