In the spirit of full transparency, this post promotes some webinars and seminars I’m doing and a new YouTube channel. I know that some of you don’t like to get your weekly email of new blog posts that include promotions. I know that because every time I do it, I get 2-3 unsubscribes and that’s almost the only time I get any unsubscribes. But, at that risk and with the hope that the other three blog posts this week offset any annoyance, the following are some really good opportunities to learn. If you’re not interested, just move on to the next blog post. Thanks for your indulgence.
Insurance Journal’s Academy of Insurance 12-Part Series on Resolving Insurance Coverage and Claims Disputes
As previously announced, this year I’m writing a monthly column in the Insurance Journal magazine and their Academy of Insurance is supplementing that with a monthly webinar. January’s column and webinar was largely an introduction to the series and a discussion of whether insurance is becoming a commodity. A remarkable 80% of January participants rated that webinar as follows:
How did our instructor do today?
4.82 out of 5
Was the content what you wanted?
4.69 out of 5
Would you recommend this class to anyone else?
4.76 out of 5
February’s article and webinar are entitled “Why Claims Are Denied.” I’ll provide four reasons why this happens and what you can do about it. In the webinar, we’ll dig deeper by considering a bunch of claim scenarios and how to resolve them. You can register for individual webinars for $99 but, by far, the best deal is to become an Academy member for $279. This gives you access not only to my entire 12-part series, but also dozens and dozens of live and recorded webinars. Truly speaking objectively, this is a tremendous value given the quality of instruction provided by some top notch insurance experts that I personally know.
