When you work in the insurance industry, people expect you to be accessible and responsive at all hours. They want to trust that they can reach you when the worst happens, and oftentimes that is during non-business hours.

We understand that it is not possible for you to be available 24/7, but that you also don’t want to miss out on business opportunities. That is why many insurance brokers, claims adjusters, and other industry professionals partner with insurance call answering services. A 24/7 live answering service ensures that your customers and leads receive excellent service regardless of when they reach out. When you partner with an insurance answering service like Answering Service Care, you can rest assured knowing that our friendly, compassionate virtual receptionists have you covered at all hours.

Below we will explain what exactly an insurance answering service does, and how the process works!

What is an insurance answering service?

An insurance answering service is a company that manages incoming communications on behalf of insurance companies, claims adjusters, and other insurance professionals. When a phone call or text message comes in, it will be answered by a professional live receptionist who serves as a representative of the business. This individual can transfer calls, schedule appointments, answer general questions, qualify leads, take messages, and more.
