Contactless Solutions In Insurance

COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of digital adhering to the need for social distancing and contactless services. Consumers expect personalization, convenience and greater levels of customer service satisfaction regardless of insurers, assets, and geography. In the near future, we may resume socializing, but there sure will be a change in the way we interact. Customers will still prefer contactless interaction while making a purchase.

  1. Contactless Claims Investigation: Going by the traditional physical inspection approach, even a simple motor claim may take 5-7 working days. Self-service claims portals can help customers register, inspect and settle their motor insurance claims. Using Machine Vision to analyze damaged parts and the severity of damage through the photographs submitted by the customers.Bajaj Allianz, Trillium Mutual Insurance are already using contactless claims solutions for their policyholders.
  2. Contactless Sales: Pre and post-sales queries can be handled by multilingual/vernacular chatbots that eliminates the need for agents/RMs to meet clients and prospects physically. Chatbots equipped with language processing capability could replace human interaction with customers in areas such as First Notice of Loss (FNOL) and customer support.
  3. Contactless Payments: Digital wallets like PayTM and PhonePe (in India) have updated their interface to allow essential payments to the fore including insurance premiums. The API-based business model for Insurance is gaining momentum.

The Rise of Telemedicine

The spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic has unequivocally altered the model for healthcare delivery in the new normal. As healthcare organizations take on more risk for patients beyond their walls in value-based reimbursement models, the ability to monitor patients remotely to identify problems before they escalate is becoming critical. With increased pressure worldwide on improving the efficiency of care delivery and reducing costs, remote delivery of healthcare services may be able to bridge the healthcare gaps for the rural populace. 

According to a recent Data Labs (Inc 42) study, Telemedecine grabs the highest market share within the Indian Health Tech market and is expected to cross $5.5B by 2025 at 31% CAGR.

While the US leads with the most public awareness on telemedicine services, China dominates in terms of user acceptance. Although the market in India is still fairly nascent, public awareness can only grow from here, as regulations bring more clarity and momentum into the space.

Telemedecine has two key underlying benefits in the current scenario:

  1. It extends medical care to people with varying health conditions without the need to visit clinics and hospitals, mitigating the risk of infection.
  2. It helps suspected COVID-19 patients seek medical advice about self-quarantine practices.

What makes Video KYC a Better Choice for Insurers

On April 23, 2020, IRDAI allowed insurers to avail Aadhar-based authentication to fulfill the KYC norms of policyholders. Video KYC or e-KYC can facilitate immediate verification and can make the insurance buying process contactless, simpler and time-saving.

The banking sector is already using Video KYC. Most banks expect that at least 70% of their sales will be contactless by December 2020 and Video KYC will play an integral role in facilitating this strategy.

The key benefits of Video KYC for Insurers:

  1. Faster customer onboarding: In-person verification requires customer’s availability which often delays the onboarding process.
  2. Physical documentation: Collecting physical documents and uploading them to a data server is an overhead process and carries chances of error during manual data entry. Video KYC automates this process with a higher level of accuracy.
  3. On-spot document verification: Face-match and real-time document verification with registered databases become a one-stage process.
