A claims administrator is the company contractually obligated to perform under the service contract. The claims administrator will authorize and pay the repair facility (shop) for covered repairs to your vehicle.
A claims administrator works with the repair facility to make sure your claim is handled properly. Because they are the company that pays your claim, their financial strength is an important factor in choosing a reliable company.
