Claims Negotiating and Monitoring
At WLI, our seasoned attorneys not only have extensive legal backgrounds, but we offer more than just your run of the mill claims management.
Ask yourself: Who do you want to keep you out of the courtroom? Should you have to go to trial, who are you partnering with for the best possible outcome?
We provide a team of skilled negotiators from day one to negotiate each and every claim and monitor any trial and/or appeal involving the claim.
Indemnity Expense and Reserving
WLI maintains a simple reserving philosophy for our clients - to place reserves that reflect the ultimate exposure, as determined by the client's input and the information known to date.
WLI does not utilize formulaic reserves, nor does it apply “benchmark reserves” based on the status or age of a claim. Instead, based upon its collective experience in handling claims, WLI analyzes the matter, the experts, the venue and the applicable law to determine the claim's exposure.
WLI maintains a dedicated compliance department to ensure that all federal and state reporting requirements are performed. WLI routinely performs reporting to the NPDB and the applicable state insurance department.
In addition, all compliance information is stored in Genesis, our RMIS database, giving our clients access to the information.
With WLI, rest assured that you will no longer stress over MMSEA reporting. Genesis has been modified to perform all aspects of the MMSEA Section 111 reporting for our clients.
Our claims professionals utilize Genesis to perform eligibility queries on applicable claimants and, when reportable claims are paid, Genesis provides our compliance department with all necessary information for making the required reports to CMS.
