Insurance policies are very important in protecting assets against losses and damages. When insurance claims are filed trained professionals are required to review the claims to make sure the correct guidelines are followed. This is the job of claims examiners.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a claims examiner do?

Claims examiners evaluate claims that are made against insurance companies. They review the claims and determine if the proper procedures were followed. They make sure they have all of the correct information, consult with clients and insurance agents, and review the required reports and documents. They are responsible for keeping down the costs and recognizing fraud cases. They also approve and deny claims, set up settlements, and prepare reports summarizing claims. Most claims examiners work for life or health insurance companies. In life insurance companies, they assess causes of death and determine if new applicants have serious health conditions that make them at higher risk. In health insurance companies, claims examiners assess the claims to determine if the costs are reasonable for the specific condition.

What kind of training does a claims examiner need?

Claims examiners must have at least a high school diploma, but many have completed formal training. Many employers prefer candidates with bachelor degrees. Many claims examiners complete courses in business, mathematics, law, and economics. Those interested in examining medical claims also complete medical courses. Some prospective claims examiners complete work-study programs to gain practical experience. Most employers provide on the job training where new claims examiners work with experienced employees. Some states require claims examiners to be licensed. Licensing requirements typically include minimum education and experience and passing a written examination.

Job prospects are expected to be good with keen competition. Claims examiners with advanced education and extensive experience will have the best job opportunities.
