Le Beau joins Health Claims Bureau board

Le Beau Visage managing director Peter Le Beau has been appointed as non-executive director of Health Claims Bureau.

HCB is part-owned by GenRe and specialises in claims services, providing assessor support and training, process and system reviews, home visits, and investigation and surveillance services.

HCB Group managing director Jim Harris says: “Peter will be a major asset to our work at Health Claims Bureau. We are so pleased to welcome someone of Peter’s experience and reputation.”

Le Beau says: “I am delighted to be joining the board of HCB. I have known a number of members of the team for many years and they have huge product knowledge about income protection.

“Part of the key to the revival of income protection is to ensure that the right claims are paid and the industry protects itself against fraud and collusion. HCB do this work very professionally.”

HCB’s home visitors saw around 2,000 claimants in their homes during 2006 on behalf of their insurers, many at claim form stage. The firm says this accelerates the claim assessment process and embraces treating customers fairly.
