Our Approach

The BKS Long-Term Care client engagement process begins with a consultative overview of the existing insurance and risk management program. We call this process RiskMappingTM. Our proprietary RiskMapTM report contains strategic, financial, operational and risk due diligence insights and recommendations. The report will also include a marketing summary and stewardship plan for the account. The RiskMappingTM process is a significant investment of intellectual capital and time on our part and requires the client provide a balance of data for our review; however, the resulting program is entirely customized to the client’s needs and achieves a critical reduction of gaps and overlaps in coverage.

Clients receive a dedicated client service team and risk mitigation services through a team of specialists including safety engineers, claims consultants, actuaries and analysts. This team and our resources are typically found at the carrier level and not “in-house”. Having this team in-house gives our clients the ability to better control over their losses and management and insight of their claims. The data mined by our analysts and actuaries is used to help drive down underwriter pricing at renewal as well.
