|CIGA Hires A New Claims Manager; ICA An Experienced M.O. Examiner|
By Lonce LaMon - October 23, 2009
Robert Martinez is now working at Integrated Claims Administrators (ICA) in Torrance, California, as a claims assistant and a medical only examiner. He started working at ICA just a couple of weeks ago, soon after more than three years of working for Farmer John in Los Angeles, where he gave support to two claims examiners and handled medical only claims in the Farmer John self-insured, self-administered workers' compensation claims office.
Robert started working as a claims assistant in workers' comp at Crawford & Company in El Segundo, California, in 1999. He stayed with Crawford until 2003, and then went to work for the Law Firm of Adelson, Testan, Brundo & Popalardo in Long Beach as a Legal Secretary.
Robert now has his WCCA Certificate and lives in Long Beach, California.
Byron Taylor will be starting his new position as the Claims Manager of the California Insurance Guarantee Association (CIGA) in Glendale, California, at the beginning of November. He happens to reside in Glendale, and will now have a 2.9 mile commute to work.
During the past two years, Byron has been the Director of Home Office claims for the state Conservation and Liquidation Office in Los Angeles. He coordinated and directed reinsurance audits of Fremont Indemnity Company's claims handled by various State Insurance Guaranty Funds (IGA’s). He also directed the identification and collection of funds (claims, claims vendors and providers) owed to the Fremont estate.
Byron Taylor has a long history with Fremont Indemnity Company dating back to 1991. Actually he started in claims at The Travelers back in 1990 when they had an office in Universal City, California. He stayed there for just about a year before moving to Fremont Indemnity to work in their Glendale, California, office as a claims examiner. He was promoted to Supervisor there at Fremont in 1997, then became a Home Office Manager in 2000, and then a Home Office Director in 2001.
Then, in 2003, when Fremont went into liquidation, he coordinated the post liquidation transition of all claims files to various State Insurance Guaranty Funds (IGA’s) or policy holders, including physical files, electronic claims data and financials.
Byron has a B.A. degree from California State University at Northridge.
