Sedgwick is proud to support the Association of Claims Professionals (ACP) to advance our industry and sustain future growth and positive outcomes. The companies that make up the ACP are leaders in the claims management industry and include independent claims adjusting companies and third party administrators. ACP companies respond every day to individuals and businesses who suffer a loss such as a workplace injury, property or casualty damage, or liability. For the consumers in our industry, the ACP member companies help them recover from such a loss. For carriers and self-insured employers, ACP member companies act as strategic business partners and trusted advisors, providing professional claims services integral to risk management. ACP member companies provide a full range of claims services from claims adjusting to comprehensive claims management.
As the ACP site explains, the organization exists to:
- Champion the growth of our industry and the recruitment of diverse, workforce-ready talent to meet our future needs.
- Share best practices, information, tools, and educational resources that support our industry leadership and service excellence.
- Monitor the national landscape for market shifts and help their membership maintain a sustainable competitive advantage.
In our Insights for 2017, we see regulation transformation as one of the key issues facing the industry this year. The ACP and Sedgwick both support the CLAIM Act that is designed to address inefficiency, redundancy and lack of consistency for claims adjusting by calling on states to adopt uniform, reciprocal licensure where an adjuster license is required. The Act aims to preserve state oversight and regulation to ensure consumers have timely, efficient and cost-effective claims services, and to remove barriers to efficient claim processing.
Sedgwick colleagues are highly trained professionals who are committed to providing the best service to the people we interact with each day. That is why we are a member of the ACP; we encourage you to learn more about ways the association and fellow members are working to ensure our industry stays strong and healthy by visiting the ACP website at www.claimsprofession.org.
