CCM Use Case Series: Payment Schedules
The key to making the most out of a tool is understanding the various ways it can be used. Arguably one of the most valuable traits a tool can possess is versatility. When it comes to technology and SaaS, specialized versatility, specifically, has become the name of the game, so to speak. Considering CCM solutions, there is a whole suite of features and capabilities for users to implement that add value into the organization. As this series has already covered things like certificates of insurance and policy renewal letters, in this article, we’ll examine the part that CCM plays in payment schedules.
Payment schedules are one of the most important aspects of an insurance company because of the simple fact that they involve the consumers financial assets. This is vital as mistakes made in planning or executing payment schedules can lead to costly repercussions and severe customer reactions.
The Role Payment Schedules Play
As mentioned above, payment schedules are a vital aspect of the insurance industry. Payment schedules are going to apply to each and every customer that you take on, whether they’re in an active claim or not. This is because even customers that are not going through a claims process, obviously still need to pay for the insurance services.
These payment schedules are often set up and agreed upon at the onset of coverage. However, things can change during and after a claim is settled. For instance, a claim on your policy in which you’re at fault could raise rates, or worse yet even force your firm to drop a customer. On the other hand, in the instance that your customer isn’t at fault, there needs to be a payment schedule set up to deliver appropriate payments to the consumer.
As you can see, whether you’re onboarding a new customer, or helping file a claim for a victim or an at-fault party, payment schedules will be involved.
