BEDMINSTER, NJ – October 28, 2014 – FastTrack RTW Services & Solutions, a division of Kamine Technology Group, LLC, announced that Amalgamated Life Insurance Company of White Plains, New York, a leading provider of insurance solutions including group life, disability and medical stop loss, has become the latest Life Waiver Tools client.
Amalgamated Life will look to improve its Best in Class Practices and operational risk management profile by standardizing and automating their life waiver claims administrative tasks and adjudication processes through use of FastTrack’s Life Waiver Tools.
The FastTrack Life Waiver process inputs key restrictions and limitations data from the claimant’s medical provider into an advanced Physical Capabilities Form (PCF). The PCF is then compared against a specialized and validated occupational library to identify the claimant’s ability to perform his or her own occupation or any occupation, based on the terms of the claimant’s policy. Further analyses can be specified based on the claimant’s gainful wage, Training, Education and Experience (TE&E) and geographic criteria as underwritten. This next generation automation enhances, standardizes and speeds the waiver of premium adjudication process, while providing comprehensive assessment data to the insurer’s benefit specialist to make optimal claim adjudication decisions.
In addition to licensing FastTrack’s Life Waiver Tools software, Amalgamated Life will also utilize FastTrack’s Claim Administrative Services to perform specific administrative tasks, which will allow their claims personnel to focus on core adjudication decision-making functions.
“At Amalgamated Life, we are continually improving in order to maintain the highest standards of quality in operations and customer service,” said Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing John A. Thornton. “By integrating advanced technologies such as FastTrack’s Life Waiver Tools, we can streamline and enhance our processes to facilitate optimum outcomes.”
Carl Capato, FastTrack’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Risk Management Solutions commented, “We are very excited to welcome Amalgamated Life as FastTrack’s newest Life Waiver Tools Customer. We believe there is strong synergy between Amalgamated’s risk management goals and our own products and services, which will greatly benefit both parties.” Capato went on to say, “With the many significant additions to our Life Waiver Tool client base this year, there is no doubt that the industry believes the time has come to establish stronger waiver of premium best practices through assistive technology as it significantly enhances the current waiver of premium claim evaluation and adjudication processes.”
