Profiles in Risk – E39: Wesley Todd on the Corruption of Assignment of Benefits

OR SUBSCRIBE

 

In this episode, I speak with Wes Todd, CEO of Caseglide, who has been on the show twice before and is shooting to become the first member of Profile in Risk’s Five-Timers Club (or as I mistakenly referred to as the Fivers Club) We discussed Assignment of Benefits in insurance and how this legal concept is causing havoc in the Florida insurance market adding an additional $1 billion dollars of claims into the system. We discuss the tactics used by lawyers and contractors to harass claims victims and bully insurers. According to Wes, the solution to this problem is more technology (the ecosystems ability to incorporate new and better technology to adjust claims quicker) and education (our responsibility to inform the public on the assignment of benefits and the harm it can cause the policyholder). Links to the articles discussed in the podcast are listed below.
