About Pendulum Claims Management
Pendulum Claims Management, proudly based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, provides innovative claims management and event management solutions, tools, software, and support to the Senior Living, Aging Services, and healthcare insurance industries.
Our team of highly skilled liability claims managers are available to provide quality liability claims management and reporting to both the insured and insurer alike, allowing the client to know their claims are being handled with the expertise required in the Aging Services and healthcare industries, all while keeping an eye on the bottom line.
Pendulum Claims Management can provide full-service claims administration to the self-insured entity, and carriers, including litigation management; liability exposure analyses; loss run and bordereaux reporting; expense invoice auditing; and mediation, arbitration, and trial attendance.
Alternatively, claims processing services are also available for the client who already has internal claims management personnel but lack the robust software, financial management, and reporting support capabilities needed to round out their self-administration program.
Lastly, Pendulum Claims Management can also provide a newly developed event management software and support program to track and monitor events to bolster the existing risk management programs. Pendulum Claims Management can tailor a service package of claims and event management to suit your company’s specific needs.
