MSIG Hong Kong’s 2022 Claims Report Spotlights Customer-Centricity and Digitalisation Efforts

Media OutReach – 13 July 2023 –
MSIG Insurance (Hong Kong) Limited (“MSIG”) today published its fourth annual
MSIG Claims Report, which presents the total claims honoured in Hong Kong and Macau as well as the insurer’s latest initiatives. MSIG’s
claims settlement ratio reached
92.9% in 2022, rising for the third consecutive year, up from 92.4% in 2021 and 91.2% in 2020.
The insurer’s development of new digital solutions were also highlighted, including its Zero Touch claims payment initiative (“Zero Touch”) and revamp of the EASY Claims system that allows customers to make claims quickly online. Supporting the EASY Claims system and aligning to the insurer’s broader digitalisation goals, MSIG developed a series of explainer videos to provide clear and concise guidance to customers using the platform. They cover a variety of popular insurance products, including travel, home contents, personal accident, domestic helper and motor.
In 2022,
MSIG honoured claims totalling HK$356,172,327 in Hong Kong and Macau and its Annual Claims Survey found that, on average, customers rated their satisfaction with the insurer at 8.5 out of 10. In the report, the top settlement ratios by class in 2022 were Employee’s Compensation in Hong Kong at 99.0%, followed by Domestic Helper at 97.82% and Personal Accident at 97.5%.
Philip Kent, Chief Executive Officer of MSIG Hong Kong, said: “While all claims are different, each has a human story behind it that continues to inspire and drive us to do our best. I’m grateful for the hard work of our teams in striving to meet our customer’s needs throughout the past year. Looking ahead, we will continue our focus on serving our customers by further enhancing our range of services and, in particular, continuing the digitalisation of our claims process and how our customers engage with us.”
Zero Touch, a digital payment solution for simple claims, is planned for full roll-out in Q3 2023. This online system checks customers’ claims history, policy validity and claims payment amount, enabling the settlement of eligible clinical and dental expenses in just two working days. The Zero Touch platform will initially focus on insurance for domestic helpers, but will expand to more products in the near future.
To enhance the user experience, MSIG has completely redesigned the interface of its EASY Claims system for greater simplicity and to streamline the claims process. The claims submission process through EASY Claims is now completely digital with improved navigation tools, an option to save claims and come back to them later, and an overall focus on supporting claimants through the process smoothly.
In the period ahead, MSIG will continue to develop more customer-centric claims management tools, such as a tracking system for users to monitor the status of their claims in real time.
