Honest errors and mistakes create higher premiums. Many situations require an independent auditor to review the records and data to determine if any such mistakes or omissions occurred. If a policy holder feels that an error has occurred, an independent audit may be performed to review the insurance company audit to determine if the auditor failed to exclude certain types of wages from the audit which resulted in an overcharge for the insured. Because of our background and reputation, Expert Audit Services can provide an assessment acceptable to insurance companies and regulators.
Auditors are human. Honest errors and mistakes occur. Individual auditors have widely varying levels of experience and training. Of policies pulled for Test Audits, approximately 14% are found to have errors significant enough to be measured against the insurance company. Mistakes often result in higher premiums.
Additionally, some exclusions are acceptable only if records are segregated and summarized properly. Expert Audit Services can identify these exclusions and assist in setting up a record keeping system to allow for their exclusion.
