1 Electronic Claim File and A&S Repository Briefing Market Forum 24 th August 2006

2 Market Reform Page 1 Introduction – New team structure Update on A&S Repository –Restatement of purpose and benefits –What is being delivered and when? Update on Electronic Claim File Project –Restatement of overall objective –What is being delivered in Phase 5 –Challenges for the Market Questions Agenda

3 Market Reform Page 2 Update on A&S Repository

4 Market Reform Page 3 Restatement of overall A&S Objectives Rationalise and streamline business processes, specifically: –Speed up premium and claims payment –Remove reliance on paper –Reduce errors and reconciliation by capturing richer data once –Enable back office rationalisation –Introduce flexibility - process the way the business requires rather than the business being driven by constraints Implement international standards for the communication and processing of accounting & settlement data (the ACORD XML RLC standards) Provide a firm base for the future

5 Market Reform Page 4 Repository Broker loads slip, LPANs and supporting documentation to repository thereby removing paper (and vans) –Three methods: –Direct Load –Email –DRI Message Carriers can gain access and view and download documents DRI enabled repository that also enables direct loading and enquiries to: –deliver documents to Xchanging Ins-Sure Services for checking –deliver documents directly between brokers and carriers i.e. in support of non-bureau or P2P processes

6 Market Reform Page 5 Resultant Bureau Premium Submission Processes

7 Market Reform Page 6 Repository Benefits and Implications Faster turnaround times for documentation since van time is eliminated. No van time and speedier query resolution means signed lines available quicker Speedier resolution of queries will reduce the volume of rejections DRI functionality consistent with ECF. Brokers have options on how to connect, DRI Push, DRI Pull or Direct load (or additionally email for delivery to Xchanging for checking) Gives insurers access to a copy of the slip and other premium submission documentation in the repository Carriers can be notified as a slip is loaded on the repository thereby allowing signed lines to be communicated sooner, thus allowing speedier exposure management Utility function of the repository, without XIS processing, allows broker to distribute documents in a controlled manner to specified parties
