Here are two articles from Bloomberg News. They illustrated the tactic employed by insurers in U.S, as taught by Mckinsey.
One paragraph said: "State Farm changed its approach to settling claims after
McKinsey & Co., a New York-based consulting firm, told the insurer it could increase profits by paying out less in auto accident claims and home disasters, according to evidence presented in civil court cases."
Another paragraph said: " When a policyholder files a claim, first make a low offer,
McKinsey advised Allstate. If a client accepts the low amount, Allstate should treat the person with good hands, McKinsey said. If the customer protests or hires a lawyer, Allstate should fight back."
I hope local insurers won't adopt the same approach for more profit. Please take good care of yourself.
I will explore giving the proposed Financial Services Consumer Association (FISCA) a role to help members get fair compensation for their insurance claims. This will make it more valuable for members to join FISCA. This service will be available for existing members only, in respect of a claim that arises after they have joined FISCA.
