Reinsurance Services

Many reinsurance companies put their capital at risk on a daily basis for insurance companies across the United States. Reinsurers conduct audits to ensure customers are in compliance with the terms of their contractratual obligations including underwriting and claims. As an insurance company, NAICO has been buying reinsurance from some of the largest reinsurers in the world since 1983 and understands the intricacies involved with auditing an insurance company for reinsurance compliance.

Many reinsurers are aware that auditing their customers can greatly reduce and avoid costly mistakes; however, they may be lacking the staff or time to perform these crucial audits. NAICO has the staff and knowledge to offer these services. Our services include but are not limited to:

  • Contract compliance – verify treaty compliance and confirm adherence to underwriting guidelines and representations.
  • Premium accounting – determine if premiums and commissions have been correctly administered and validate if the unearned premium is collectable and correlates to the underlying policy data.
  • Claims handling – confirm fiduciary responsibility of cedent as outlined in claims management philosophies, operations and systems and evaluate claim practices through review of amounts paid, settled, reserved and reported.
  • Implementation and recommendation – if we determine that one of the above issues is out of compliance with what was warranted to the reinsurer, we can identify this in a clear report and make recommendations of how to revamp the area of concern.
