Pilot Claims / Absence Management
Harvey Watt & Company is the premier provider of airmen Disability Loss of License coverage in the United States and Canada. We have been serving the pilot population since 1951. Pilots, pilot groups and their employers access our expertise in two ways:
- Individual Loss of License insurance products. Here, a pilot may purchase an individual Disability policy (or policies), underwritten by an insurance company, with terms that address the unique needs they face under the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs), and
- Administrative Services (also known as Administrative Services Only, ASO, Third Party Administrative or TPA services). Here, commercial Airline pilots, through their group membership or employment with an Airline, are enrolled in a self – insured or fully insured pilot occupational disability plan, which we administer under the terms of administrative service agreements.
- We also conduct Evidence of Insurability reviews, manage plan enrollment and review enrollment applications.
In either case, when a claim is filed, the Harvey Watt Claims Department is committed to providing our customers with fair, concise and legally sound processing of their disability claims. It is through this high level of professionalism and understanding of the Pilot’s unique circumstances that we continue to earn the trust that pilots and pilot groups have placed in our Company over the last 60+ years.
Due to Harvey Watt & Co.'s unique understanding of FAA pilot health and licensing requirements, we are proud to be responsible for the claims / absence management of many US Airlines representing 40,000+ pilots.
