Health insurance risk assessment using cognitive mapping and multiple‐criteria decision analysis
International Transactions in Operational Research
October 31, 2020
Health insurance risk analysis is crucial to the development of the insurance industry, allowing insurance companies to anticipate potential losses in health insurance's inverted product life cycle. The health insurance risk evaluation process is, however, carried out in various ways, which limits the application of transparency, fairness, and justice principles in the calculation of risk rewards. By combining cognitive mapping and measuring attractiveness by a categorical‐based evaluation technique (i.e., MACBETH, a multiple‐criteria decision analysis technique), this study sought to create a nonparametric and distinctive decision support system for individual private health insurance risk analysis. The proposed system facilitates greater transparency in the calculation of health insurance risk rewards. The results of a real‐world application of this system were analyzed and discussed in face‐to‐face group meetings with independent experts who work for two of the largest insurance companies in Portugal, thereby incorporating realism into the proposed evaluation mechanism. The advantages and limitations of this assessment framework are also discussed.

Building trust and breaking down misconceptions: How automation-driven claims could become a greater USP in the battle for consumer hearts, minds and wallets
Insurance Post
February 25, 2021
There has often been a lot of credence put into the suggestion that a great claims experience will stand an insurer in good stead when it comes to renewal.
However, many policyholders still shop around because they have been conditioned too in the belief they can get a better deal elsewhere, an issue that has been tackled head on recently by the Financial Conduct Authority in its final report on pricing practices in the home and motor insurance markets.
Against this backdrop Insurance Post in association with Blue Prism would like to invite you to a live interactive webinar, in which we will discuss why it has never been more important to fine tune and promote the claims journey as a USP; how that can be done with intelligent automation; and how it could be a fantastic tool in building trust in an insurance brand.
