Saint Paul, Minn. – The aviation unit of Travelers Cos. Inc. is using a technology-based approach to introduce a new workers’ compensation insurance program for corporate flight departments.

Travelers’ new aviation workers’ compensation program will provide coverage for general aviation flight departments, including pilots, ground crew and administrative staff, to help insureds keep rising loss cost trends under control. The program will supplement aircraft hull and liability policy forms for flight departments ranging from a single pilot to large departments.

“The workers’ compensation climate is changing,” says Gordon Murray, president, Travelers Aviation. “We want to make sure we are working closely with our customers so that their business is properly prepared, educated and equipped with the best tools, technologies and advancements to manage the challenge of rising claims costs.”

Workers’ compensation policyholders also benefit from TravComp, a specialized approach to managing their claims. The Travelers TravComp workers’ compensation claim management process uses technology to integrate the claim, medical and billing platforms, ensuring that payments are issued only for appropriate bills. TravComp also offers the industry’s first injured-worker Web site, a site for injured employees to obtain information and medical tips, and to review their claim payment information online. Customers can further benefit from Saint Paul, Minn.-based Travelers’ 24-hour claim reporting tools.

“By listening to our customers’ demands, we are able to further enhance our commitment to the aviation industry and better serve our customers,” says Murray. “We continue to expand our capabilities and product offerings to meet their unique needs.”
