Field Underwriting Tools
Improving Risk Selection is a goal of all insurers and agencies. eValuate supports carrier-specific underwriting rules including multiple impairments, co-morbidities, debits and credits, temporary flat extras and other ‘secret-sauce’. It provides Agency workflow and the ability to review and quote multiple Carriers, including specific underwriting guidelines and impairment parameters!
XRAE is a field underwriting tool that immediately returns a health class rating or range based on published and unpublished carrier underwriting rules. XRAE maintains the confidentiality of the each carrier’s rules and ensures the consistent, accurate application of those rules to each case, while enabling agents to set realistic customer expectations on-demand. Agents sell more, and carriers and distributors increase placement ratios.

Predictive Modeling a View from New York
By Jason Bowman, Founder & CEO, CumPane Solutions LLC
On 19 January 2019, the New York State Department for Financial Services (DFS) issued a circular letter1 concerning the use of external consumer data and information sources for life insurance underwriting. This followed a prior notice sent to insurers that the Department was investigating the use of such data for potentially unfair or discriminatory practices.
In the US the deployment of predictive models for life insurance has grown exponentially over the past five years, providing carriers with an opportunity to break out of the preferred underwriting ‘strait-jacket’ that has required anyone applying for life insurance over relatively low levels (around $100,000) to undergo a medical exam with blood and urine testing. Whilst preferred underwriting has enabled the industry to offer some of the most affordable life insurance in the world, it has conversely created an expensive and time-consuming underwriting process that has become an inhibitor for some consumers to purchase cover.
