“Otelco has worked with and come to rely on Mr. Walter Haney and American Risk Managers for several decades.

A Savings Checkup
After turning their entire Risk Management operation over to American Risk Managers (ARM), a mid-sized hospital client said they enjoyed “a true partnership,” as well as many other benefits. Premium savings for this hospital were more than 50%.
Coverage enhancements included:
- Significant increases in limits for Directors & Officers Insurance. (Dealing with top management’s personal exposure when they’re not protected by the corporate shield.)
- A correction of property values. (Resulting from an in-depth asset analysis.)
- A correction of payroll classifications, which had led to inflated Workers’ Compensation premiums. (Discovered during an audit review.)
- Further dramatic premium reductions from changing a $250,000 deductible program to a no-deductible program. (Made possible by completing a detailed claims analysis.)
All of these improvements in premiums and coverage were realized by this client with their original agents through the assistance of ARM.
Besides these accomplishments, ARM also helped to prepare hospital management for meetings with their boards, banks and regulatory authorities on Property and Casualty Insurance issues.
And All Became One
One of American Risk Managers (ARM) smallest clients quickly grew into one of its largest and benefitted greatly from a consolidation of insurance programs before its rapid expansion.
Originally, this telecommunications giant was a small conglomerate, with each company purchasing its own insurance.
Coverages varied widely, from named perils to all risk on property. Deductibles ranged from $250 to $5,000. Some companies had Umbrella Policies, while others did not. Limits were all over the board.
In all, there were 47 different policies for this client.
With ARM on board, Risk Management results included a consolidation of all coverages with a total of two agents, a decrease to seven policies, and a savings of 40% in premiums.
- From close to $1 million in insured property values to approximately $500 million…
- From a few locations to more than 2,500 locations, including extensive coastal and earthquake exposures…
- From a small group of local companies to a giant corporation with a large fleet of service vehicles…
ARM has been pleased to help EVERY step of the way.
Service Leads To Sales Price Drop
Most companies believe there’s nothing they can do about their Workers’ Compensation costs.
Most companies are sadly mistaken. And many companies are paying a lot more than they should be.
Errors in payroll, errors in code entries, not including certain classification limits, and many other factors can affect Workers’ Compensation premiums.
For one large retail chain, being in an Assigned Risk Category was driving up costs.
Becoming a client of American Risk Managers was a beneficial first step for this client.
Under our direction, the next “best steps” were:
- An extensive review of Workers’ Compensation classifications and entries;
- A correction of their Experience Modification Factor. (A very costly, but common error); and
- Taking this client’s policies into the competitive private insurance markets.
These actions led to a drop of 28% in their Workers’ Compensation premium—saving THOUSANDS.
As this company expanded its 3-state operation into 14 states, ARM developed Risk Management Programs that continued to reduce their Workers’ Compensation premiums, as well as their General Liability claims.
With expansion areas that included the eastern seaboard, and wind and flood exposures, ARM also aided with the resolution of hurricane damage claim issues between this client and their insurance adjuster.
A huge part of this claim dealt with income and profit losses from the client’s business being down.
Because ARM requires its clients’ insurance carriers to provide for forensic accounting of business income losses, an independent review was completed.
An initial settlement amount of $36,000 was later increased to $170,000—$140,000 MORE than the original offer and all because this client had chosen ARM to handle their Risk Management needs.
