Aviva Canada Inc. has been awarded a three-year accreditation for its injury claims management programs from the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
Aviva is the first insurer in North America to receive this internationally recognized accreditation.
CARF accreditation provides Aviva and its Premiere Healthcare Network with an independent endorsement of its customer care and service program, according to the company.
“Pursuing accreditation was borne out of the desire to do the right thing for the customer,” Greg Somerville, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Aviva Insurance, said in the release. “With this additional seal of approval, our customers can feel even more confident that the care they are receiving is delivered at the highest standard available.”
