SERVICES

CLAIMS MANAGEMENT

 

CLAIMS MANAGEMENT

Claims management is our core business and the foundation upon which TRISTAR is built. Our claims staff members are expert and astute professionals who our clients rely on for their advice and knowledge throughout the management of claims entrusted to our care. It is the work of these specialists that transform risk into opportunity for our clients, their employees, and their important stakeholders.

 

Professional Examiners – Experts Matched to Meet Your Needs

We begin every engagement by getting to know your exact expectations, building program specifications together, and matching our experienced, proactive professionals with your program needs. Regardless of the line of business, our professional examiners all meet TRISTAR’s rigorous standards and are appropriately licensed for the jurisdictions in which they manage claims. They protect your assets by managing to our industry leading Best Practices and your custom claims handling instructions. By performing thorough investigations, establishing proper reserves, and managing the claims we are assigned to fair and equitable conclusions, we deliver superior outcomes. We maintain communication throughout, providing our clients with our best advice and recommendations.

 

Strong Supervisors– Keys to Success

Oversight and supervision is our key to achieving outstanding outcomes. Our supervisors are seasoned professionals with extensive backgrounds in the line of business claims that they oversee. They do not carry personal caseloads. Their time is spent coaching and managing the examiners, directing their work from initial assignment through claim closure. Their work assures that claims are consistently managed to TRISTAR and your high quality standards.  

 

Claim System – Technology Supporting Productivity

All of our claims management activities are supported by industry leading technology that is comprehensive, customizable, and easy to use. Our web-enabled system is completely paperless, allowing our staff to operate in our offices or remotely. Full automation of key activity triggers allows both our examiners and supervisors to manage their work efficiently. And, with unlimited customizable fields, they can easily capture the customer-specific data that provides the metrics you need to manage your program.

 

Quality Assurance – Keeping Our Promise

As stewards of our clients’ claims, TRISTAR always wants to make certain that our teams are providing consistent high quality service. Our Quality Assurance team reviews each of our offices on a regular basis to assure that we are meeting our commitments to our clients. The team not only reviews the work, but also provides training and is a valued resource in the management of highly complex or unusual claims.

Our flexible approach allows for regionalized staffing models that create critical inventory mass for your designated professionals allowing them to achieve a better understanding of your needs, expectations and philosophy. Manageable caseloads allow for strong communication, timely and proactive claims management activity, and comprehensive injured employee care throughout the life of the claim, delivering outstanding results day in and day out.

 

LIABILITY

Liability claims, whether resulting from premises, operations, products, or a myriad of other exposures can be devastating to a business or public agency.

TRISTAR can manage all areas of your liability exposures to create solutions and optimize results. We customize development of staffing models to suit a particular need including on-site, dedicated or designated staffing models. As with all of our claim management programs, our professionals conduct thorough investigations, set appropriate reserves and manage claims to fair and equitable conclusions. In support of our work and to control your costs, we utilize approved vendors for field and other investigations and approved law firms to assist in managing litigation. Information gathering, investigations and evaluations are critical to a timely and cost-effective closure.

 

PROPERTY

A business or public agency’s buildings and other physical assets are critical to continuing operations and success.
