Success with Shift Claims Fraud Detection solutions leads to adoption of Shift Subrogation Detection

BOSTON & PARIS, June 28, 2023 Shift Technology, a provider of AI-powered decision automation and optimization solutions for the global insurance industry, today announced Central Insurance has expanded its use of the company’s technology to include Shift Subrogation Detection. As a result, Central Insurance can better identify those claims for which a third party may be wholly or partially responsible for paying. The decision follows the insurer’s successful use of Shift Claims Fraud Detection to identify suspicious activity in the claims process over the past three years.

Central Insurance is recognized for delivering exceptional hospitality and fulfilling its promise to quickly pay policyholders for covered losses when they occur. The company’s use of Shift’s Claims Fraud Detection solution has proven effective in identifying legitimate versus suspicious claims and settling claims quickly and fairly. By introducing subrogation detection into the claims process, Central Insurance can more effectively spot hidden subrogation opportunities and develop optimal recovery strategies.  

“When a policyholder files a claim, they want to be made whole for their loss,” said Jeff Lieberman, Director of Anti-Fraud and Recovery at Central. “The intricacy of what goes on behind the scenes is not important to them, but it’s very important to us. Anytime we’re able to efficiently and accurately identify if all or part of a claim is the responsibility of a third party, we ensure our policyholders are paid quickly while creating opportunities to recover that loss for the business.”

Shift Subrogation Detection helps insurers accurately identify subrogation opportunities at scale and recommend claims handler actions that improve recovery outcomes, thus reducing claims leakage while providing a top-tier customer experience. Shift uses artificial intelligence to analyze claims data to provide a holistic view of the claim, including what happened, who was involved, and could other parties be at fault. Alerts provided by the solution include clear guidance on the nature and specifics of the subrogation opportunity, allowing for optimized demands and recovery execution. The ability to eliminate manual review and identification of recovery opportunities empowers handlers to focus their time and effort on opportunities with the highest likelihood of recovery.

“Not all claims are the responsibility of the policyholder making the claim; however, it’s not always easy to make that determination,” explained Paul Edwards, Vice President of Claims at Central. “Doing so has long been a manual and time-consuming process. Central is turning to innovative solutions like Shift Subrogation Detection to better understand what’s happening in the claims process and ensure the parties truly responsible for a loss are held accountable.”
