Our 8:30 guest was Brian Thornton, President and Founder of ISG (Insurance Services Group). ISG is a premium audit firm which focuses mostly on worker’s compensation premiums. His firm’s clients are the carriers and he works to ensure policy premiums are fair and accurate to protect both the carrier and the policyholder. Since 1992, Brian has worked in many aspects of the premium audit venue from field auditing to consulting and expert witness services. He has compiled work flow and dispute resolution processes within insurance carrier Premium Audit Departments, and has performed audits on a wide array of policies, from small businesses, to large Professional Employer Organizations (PEO’s), to companies such as national cellular service providers, professional sports franchises, large airlines, and large construction and manufacturing companies. Brian formed ISG in 2007 with a focus on providing insurance carriers a premium audit outlet with a higher level of expertise and service than what the market had to offer. Since 2007, Brian has used his subject matter expertise and industry background to assemble a high performance staff of the best premium auditors in the industry. His vision that a Premium Audit fee company could operate on par with many of the insurance carrier audit departments has been a change from the status quo that was long overdue. Brian and Jamie discuss this little known business and also touch on the issue of worker’s comp fraud which is a huge problem in Florida and how he works to combat it.
