Detect potential fraud in your health insurance business

Automate claims, reduce costs, make better decisions and improve turnaround time

Fraud: One of the most expensive challenges insurers face

Detecting potential fraud is a challenge for health insurers globally. Costing between 5% and 10% of an insurance company annual revenue, fraud has continued to grow, fuelled by rise of telehealth and telemedicine.

According to analysts, only a small percentage of medical claims are being properly examined for fraud, and those are mainly claims related to life and mortality benefits. On the other hand, medical claims are typically large volume and high frequency, which means they would need teams of experts to investigate them properly, resulting in higher costs and increased turnaround time. This is the area where SHIELD can add value by automating the medical adjudication of claims, and improving cost containment through detection of potential fraudulent cases.

Addressing your needs as an insurer

To optimize their health claims outcomes, insurers today need a new and modern approach that will automate their claims processing and lead to better decision making, faster claims responses and settlements, and more cost saving. With SHIELD you can:

  • Improve your cost containment activities, leading to reduced claim costs and loss ratios
  • Manage denials efficiently and transparently
  • Improve turnaround times
  • Increase customer satisfaction
  • Strengthen compliance

The business challenges you face

As an insurer, you face challenges related to claims processing from the day a claim is received until the final stage of settlement. The most common challenges include: 

  • Limited capacity to investigate every suspicious claim
  • Tight SLAs with medical providers for denial management
  • Legacy system limitations
  • Lack of meaningful, structured data
  • Data protection laws that prevent use of data
  • Constantly evolving fraud patterns

Put a SHIELD in place against fraud

SHIELD is a system that automates claims medical adjudication, detects potential fraud, waste and abuse, and justifies denials. It combines rules-based and machine learning models to optimize insurers' health claims outcomes.

SHIELD goes above and beyond what others provide

  • Unlike other rules-based engines, SHIELD comes with standard rule sets for specific geographies but also gives insurers the flexibility to modify rules or add their own.
  • Unlike other fraud analytics solutions, SHIELD not only detects potential fraud but can also approve or reject a claim, based on medical rules and machine learning models.

SHIELD includes rule types related to Age and Gender, Diagnosis and Regulatory and Coding System. It offers 37.000 rules out-of-the-box, plus an additional 1 million rules provided by Milliman.

SHIELD was recognised as a “Technology Standout” in Celent’s 2022 Health Insurance Fraud Detection Report, based on the sophistication and breadth of its technology.
