How Can the ICA Help You?

Since 1909, the International Claim Association (ICA) has been the premier organization connecting and empowering our members in the life, health, and disability claim fields. Over the years, we’ve grown to include a rapidly expanding international group of life and health insurance companies, reinsurers, managed care companies, TPAs, and Blue Cross and Blue Shield organizations, all dedicated to providing the best claims service possible for their clients.

Who Should Join the ICA?

We’re here to provide life, health, and disability insurance claims professionals with the comprehensive resources they need to excel – whether it’s access to valuable industry research, mandatory claims educational certifications, or a strong community of members exchanging innovative ideas and best practices.

What is the ICA? We’re a lot of things to a lot of people. But what does ICA stand for? We stand for our members. We stand for the clients you serve. We stand for connecting you to success.

ICA for Law Enforcement and LEIs

We partner with members of local, state, and federal law enforcement to help them determine if life insurance may have been a motive for a crime. The Law Enforcement Inquiry (LEI) program allows any law enforcement officer with an active criminal investigation, regarding the person named in the LEI, to request a canvass of our member companies to determine if there is a life insurance policy in place that may have been the motive for a crime. The LEI service can now be used to determine if victims of elder abuse have health coverage or long-term care coverage in place. These searches have, in the past, provided law enforcement assistance in criminal investigations and prevented our members from paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent claims. Note: The state fraud bureaus and red flags are not part of the LEI process.
