Insuranceopedia explains Claimant
In many circumstances, a third party files claims on behalf of the insured, such as in the case of health insurance for routine exams or other covered treatments. Otherwise, for liability, auto, life, and other policies, the insured typically must file a claim to receive their policy benefits to cover a loss or damages.
