Insurance premium auditor roles are important to maintain the infrastructure and reliability of insurance companies and during the pandemic, ISG has seen a number of these virtual auditor jobs migrate to being permanently remote positions.
Insurance companies are among the largest companies in the United States and do a great deal of business each year and insurance premium auditors keep these companies in check by making sure that all operations are adhering to local, state, and federal laws and regulations. These roles have traditionally been completed in-house, but there are increasing numbers of remote positions available for virtual premium auditors.
What Is a Virtual Premium Auditor?
A virtual premium auditor is a premium insurance auditor who completes their work remotely. As an auditor, it is your job to ensure that insurance companies are completing all of their duties and responsibilities appropriately. Completing this work remotely involves reviewing the data of a company (to be delivered virtually), maintaining the confidentiality of the business in question, and reporting any findings you uncover to the proper authorities.
