With so many players vying for attention, it is essential to find a way to set yourself apart from the competition. One way to achieve this is by delivering a successful claims operation.

A high-performing claims operation can be a game changer for MGAs and PAs. It not only helps reduce the total cost of risk but enhances their presence in the market while growing and retaining business. We explore six ways MGAs and PAs can find their market differentiator in today’s crowded carrier marketplace:
