Franchise Restaurant Risks

CLAIMS STRATEGY

We tailor our risk management solutions based on a thorough understanding of your risk profile and objectives. We will customize an individual program to fit your needs.   We call this the RPA/ICC (Restaurant Programs of America /Innovative Coverage Concepts) difference, sale which involves these three steps:

  • Define risks and opportunities by understanding your business, cialis 40mg and identifying, quantifying, and gauging your tolerance for risk. We then help design a program to manage that risk.
  • Design solutions based on a data analytics-driven approach to support decision making. We build solution options so that you can make effective risk management decisions.
  • Deliver results by using our comprehensive capabilities, experienced claims professionals and individually designed set of risk solutions.

We believe it’s all about a good claims outcome.  After all, isn’t this what insurance is all about? Contract certainty and carrier ability and willingness to investigate and appropriately pay claims.
