Advisory medical officers at Pohjola Insurance

Insurance companies consult advisory medical officers to ensure that their customers are treated fairly and equally regardless of, for example, where the claimant lives or what the relationship is with the doctor in charge.

Advisory medical officers participate in handling claim decisions together with other experts, such as lawyers and claims advisors. They are tasked with assessing issues related to insurance medicine when decisions are being made.

Advisory medical officers are ordinary practising doctors who specialise in insurance medicine. Most of them work as advisory medical officers alongside their regular jobs as doctors in health centres, hospitals or private clinics.
