Insurance companies rely heavily on records to serve their customers. For health insurance plans, for instance, medical records allow them to evaluate an applicant’s risk and coverage. And for auto insurance claims, police and accident reports help them determine their client’s eligibility. This is why it’s crucial for them to have a fast, accurate, and efficient record retrieval process.
To achieve that, many insurance companies handle this process in-house. However, they may not realize that they can greatly benefit from outsourcing it to a provider, such as Record Retrieval Solutions (RRS).
In this blog, we’ve rounded up frequently asked questions about RRS’s record retrieval services so you can decide whether availing these are ideal for your insurance company.
How can record retrieval services help my business save time and money?
Obtaining documents is a very tedious process that involves a lot of back-and-forth to follow up on individual records and track their status. It can easily eat up your in-house staff’s time — time that is better spent on more valuable tasks that drive your business’s growth.
Record retrieval is also very complicated since documents have different custodians, each with their own rules and guidelines, forms to fill out, and required procedures. Given this, employees who lack the knowledge of the ins and outs of this process are likely to make mistakes, which can lead to costly delays.
On the other hand, our record retrieval specialists know how to get paperwork the right way on the first try. We have personal relationships with the different records custodians, enabling us to effectively communicate with them. We also have an intimate knowledge of their internal processes, so we know how to avoid and get around delays.
Lastly, we only charge a flat fee for every record request — no hidden charges.
