About the Webinar:
Fraud and insurance claims are synonymous. Early investigation through SIU, recorded statements, ISO searches, underwriting details, independent medical examinations, medical record reviews and agency files are all tools for the claims professional and panel counsel in the endless pursuit of the facts. Expenses related to fraudulent claims—from presentment to ultimate coverage determination—can be contained through an efficient investigation protocol. The goal is to make the right coverage decision every time and use resources such as state insurance fraud bureaus to combat fictitious or exaggerated claims.
