Eastern Alliance Insurance Group Review - Inova Alternative Insurance

A legacy of providing strategic workers’ comp solutions, better outcomes, and peace of mind.

For more than 15 years, Eastern’s alternative insurance, also known as “captive” insurance, has helped employers and organizations of all types maintain better control over insurance costs and outcomes, while offering the opportunity to share in underwriting profits and investment income.


Natural stability and security through sound strategic practices.

Eastern’s Inova provides security and stability by virtue of its Segregated Portfolio Company (SPC) structure. An SPC is a single legal entity comprised of individual “protected cells.” As a captive owner, your assets and liabilities reside securely within your cell, providing your organization with a secure, stable environment.


Benefit from the strength and alternative insurance expertise of Eastern’s Inova.

Inova’s vertically integrated, fully bundled, specialty carrier approach provides a totally unified, easy-to-understand captive option. A true leader in the alternative insurance arena, Inova’s Eastern Re was the first SPC to be assigned a financial strength rating by A.M. Best Company. On August 13, 2014, A.M. Best Company reaffirmed Eastern Re’s A (Excellent) financial strength rating. Inova’s Eastern Re was also the first Segregated Portfolio Company to be authorized by the Cayman Island Monetary Authority in 1998.

Eastern Alliance Insurance Group Review - What to Expect

Immediately after experiencing a work-related injury, questions begin to arise and you may not be sure what to do next or what you can expect to happen. To help guide you through the initial stages of your claim, we have provided the following on what to expect after sustaining a work-related injury. Be sure to also check out the Glossary of commonly-used insurance terminology. If you have additional questions, please contact your claim representative or your employer.


Report your injury to your employer.


Report any injuries to your supervisor or safety manager as soon as they occur. Even if you think you may not need medical treatment, it is always important to notify your employer of all injuries as soon as they occur. You may think it will get better over the weekend, or with rest, however it is still very important for you to notify your employer of any work related injury or accident. The sooner we know about your injury, the sooner we can implement a proactive plan to help you return to wellness.


Employer reports claim to insurance carrier.


Your employer will report the injury to Eastern Alliance Insurance Group by filing a claim, and your claim will be assigned a claim number. Your employer will give you the claim number as well as a Work Status Report form to take to the doctor or hospital. The claim representative will be in contact with you to go over the details of the claim, as well as any benefit information. Keep your claim number and claim representative’s contact information in an easily accessible place, such as your wallet.


Medical treatment


Your employer will advise you if they have a list of doctors that you are required to treat with (sometimes referred to as a "medical panel"). When you go for medical treatment, give the provider your employer’s information, your claim number, and the insurance carrier's information.


There is no co-payment or deductible for you to pay. Sometimes providers may not have your claim information so they will bill the patient. If you are receiving a bill at home, it is probably a sign that your claim representative has not received the bill. If you receive any invoices at home, you can call the billing department listed on your bill and give them your claim information, or you can send the bill to your claim representative. Make sure to write your claim number on any correspondence that you send to us.


Work Restrictions


Your provider will determine if there is a need for any additional follow up treatment or prescription medications indicated, as well as if you are given any type of restrictions for work. Provide them with the Work Status report for completion. This is proof of any type of restrictions or disability that you are given. Give this to your employer and ask them to make a copy for you. They should send a copy of this to the claim representative assigned to your claim. After each following appointment, you should get your work status.

Organizations across the country are taking part in Safer Internet Day 2017 today (7th February), promoting the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for everyone.


To encourage this Warwickshire County Council’s Cyber Safe Warwickshire and the Office of Warwickshire’s police and Crime Commissioner are sharing their top tips for staying safe online.


These include using strong and unique passwords, installing and regularly updating antivirus software and updating your privacy settings on social media.

All devices that link to the internet, including mobile phones and tablets should also be protected.


Phillip Seccombe, Warwickshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “Tackling cybercrime is a key element of my Police and Crime Plan for Warwickshire, which involves not only work by the police to target and catch the criminals responsible, but also helping educate the public in the best ways in which they can help themselves avoid falling victim. It’s estimated that as much as 80 percent of all cybercrime can be cut out just by taking simple security precautions, so I urge everyone to follow our top tips to stay safe online. ”


Councillor John Horner, Warwickshire County Council Portfolio Holder for Community Safety, said: “The internet is a rich source of entertainment and knowledge that plays an important role in most people’s daily lives so it is vital that we ensure all our residents have the tools that they need to make the most of online resources but also navigate the internet in safety.”


Cllr Philip Johnson, Chair of the Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee, added: “It’s clear from Warwickshire’s first annual cybercrime survey that online crime and internet fraud are booming and, in Warwickshire, we have already invested in a range of activities to tackle this. As part of safer internet day, we hope to raise awareness of the issues so that people can take practical steps to avoid becoming a victim.”
