About Agents

Synergy Coverage Solutions has prospered under a limited production model. Instead of casting the largest net, we emphasize key historical relationships with top producers who are specialists within a given niche. By limiting the distribution of our unique product offering, Synergy has created very little overlap amongst its production sources, creating goodwill and a true partnership mentality between us and our production base. This strategy helps maintain the strong demand for Synergy’s service intensive value proposition as a limited and highly sought after product versus the more commoditized offering of the standard markets.

Underwriting

Synergy Coverage Solutions is a Managing General Agent for a select few carriers. This gives us the ability to offer flexible product offerings while maintaining high quality customer service to all policyholders, no matter which carrier they have chosen. While we have several niche markets such as non profits, staffing, healthcare and educational institutions, we maintain a generalist perspective in our underwriting philosophy. Because of our team approach, we are most interested in policyholders that have a management culture for safety awareness and an acute understanding of cost containment. Due to our high service model, our producers find that policyholders are extremely satisfied year after year, easing the renewal process for all parties involved.

Loss Prevention

Our goal is to work closely with our agent/broker and the employer to reduce accident frequency and minimize severity of workers’ compensation claims. Each employer will have a dedicated Loss Prevention Consultant who will reach beyond routine inspections and will create and help implement a customized loss prevention plan. You can rest assured that the policyholder will appreciate the attention from their Loss Prevention Consultant, which will help to maintain long lasting relationships. Our highly talented loss prevention staff works behind the scenes to identify trends in safety management and are constantly on the cutting edge of developing programs for our policyholders. 

Our loss prevention services are also available for customers not insured by Synergy, but would benefit from access to professional safety services.  Click here to view our extensive portfolio of loss prevention services.

Each employer is encouraged to contact their Loss Prevention Consultant and review our website for our online Safety Resources as they become aware of needs within their organization.

Current topics our Loss Prevention Consultants are finding vital for a safe work environment include Post-Offer Medical Questionnaires, Fit for Duty/employee health programs, Hiring Practices and Early Return to Work programs.

Claims Management

Proactive claims handling with focus on cost containment is critical in customer satisfaction, acceptable loss ratios and long lasting relationships. Synergy Coverage Solutions has a staff of highly experienced claims representatives who thoroughly investigate each claim to determine compensability through a 3-point 24-hour contact, including a recorded statement. Once compensability is determined, claims are adjudicated swiftly using multiple cost containment programs.

Employers especially enjoy the relationship they build with their dedicated Adjuster, establishing a true understanding of your client’s business. Adjusters work in small teams to promote collaborative thinking and provide back-up for your dedicated adjuster, as needed. Additionally, in person claims reviews are always available.

Case Studies

The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) has changed an integral part of the calculation of the experience modification factor. The change is coming in phases beginning in 2013, with an increase again in 2014 and the third increase taking place in 2015.

This case study will help you to understand the basics of mod calculation and how the changes in the Split Point will begin to influence the modification factor.
We compared several different scenarios using a Mod Master program to show the changes an employer should expect due to the new mod formula and what producers may want to know in advising their clients of the change.

As we all know, the mod directly impacts workers’ compensation premium. To that end, it is in the best interest of all employers to keep their mod low by keeping claims frequency and cost down. Therefore, at the conclusion of our case study, we have outlined some ideas to keep workers’ compensation claims to a minimum.
