Self-Insured Retention Services
A carrier’s largest customers typically seek coverage through Self-Insured Retentions (SIRs). Inherently, these accounts tend to have the most complicated, sophisticated, and difficult policies to administer.
Unfortunately, most carriers handle these large-dollar, complex policies in a very rudimentary way. This creates a major liability for any insurer. A critical and costly issue can start with a single transposed or mis-entered number. Which in turn presents vulnerabilities where the:
- SIR could be completely or partially missed with the insured never fulfilling their obligation,
- Carrier begins making payments on the claim early, without the SIR first being satisfied,
- Carrier eventually realizes retention has been met and pays legal bills – but since it is late carrier misses out on lucrative early pay discounts offered by many lawyers.
These mistakes can not only cost your company hundreds of thousands of dollars, but also damage its reputation in the market place. Paragon offers carriers an alternative way to ensure that all SIRs are billed accurately, timely, and efficiently.
