Aflac Incorporated AFL recently collaborated with the leading benefits experience platform, Nayya, in a bid to provide an enhanced claims experience for its supplemental health plan clients.Under the partnership, Aflac will reap the benefits from the utilization of the medical claims integration solution of Nayya. The medical claims integration process requires mapping of medical claims data to supplemental health policies, which involves analyzing and aligning medical claims information with the specific coverage provided by supplemental health insurance policies.This is followed by an automated notification to the policyholders about their eligibility to file for a claim in case of medical emergencies. An integrated system enhances the accuracy of claims processing, which, in turn, minimizes the chances of errors or rejected claims.The Nayya solution, Nayya Claims, makes use of industry expertise, algorithms, sophisticated analytic methodologies, Artificial Intelligence and data science to automate claims processes for supplemental health policies. This solution can be availed by some specific employers, who form part of Aflac's group benefits business.The recent move bears testament to Aflac’s sincere efforts in bringing the increased utilization of supplemental health benefits and lowering the financial burden of plan clients in case of a qualifying medical event. A simplified claims processing procedure may also result in a higher degree of customer satisfaction and improved account retention rates. As a result of the extensive benefits offered by the Nayya solution, more people may opt for AFL’s supplemental health plans, which will fetch higher premiums to the insurer.The latest partnership also seems to be a time opportune one since around 50% of employees cannot afford more than $1,000 in out-of-pocket costs for unanticipated medical events, per the 2023-2024 Aflac WorkForces Report. Escalating medical costs, higher deductibles and challenging economic conditions further aggravate the financial burden on consumers, and the Nayya solution seems to provide the perfect ground for Aflac to capitalize by infusing a greater peace of mind among employees.Teaming up with a digital platform also reflects Aflac’s endeavor to be in sync with the ongoing trend of digitization across every sphere of life. AFL has undertaken significant digital investments to transition to digital sales methods and enable hassle-free rendering of services. The facility of filing and managing claims online is also provided by Aflac through the MyAflac mobile app and web portal.Shares of Aflac have gained 34.3% in the past year compared with the industry’s 28.8% growth.
