The excellence in claims handling program requires thorough training providing each member of the claims staff with a minimum of the following educational programs:

   How to read and understand the contract of insurance that is the basis of every adjustment, including but not limited to:

1       The formation of the insurance policy.

 2      The rules of interpretation.

 3     Apply the facts learned in a claims investigation to the wording of the policy.

State insurance departments across the country are attempting to micromanage the business of insurance with various statutes and regulations. Insurers should not only ensure that their training programs conform to those required by the relevant states, but also that the claims staff consistently apply excellence in claims handling training in compliance with the requirements of the Regulations.
