Varying degrees of detail in patient data can make managing identities difficult, leading to health plan enrollment fraud.

Each year, millions of people will join, switch and leave health plans. Some are following their doctors, some are choosing new employer-provided health plans and some are simply ready for a change in their health care. Every aspect of health insurance enrollment depends on personal information, or identity data. Payers need to be able to verify that people who enroll are who they say they are – across all their various insurance coverage options. Unfortunately, there’s alarming growth in criminals taking advantage of the enrollment process.

Health plans need a data analytics partner with the tools – and the expertise – to help stop criminals in their tracks to reduce and eliminate enrollment fraud. Detection and elimination of certain schemes result in new tactics, not less fraud. Payers can’t count on detection alone to safeguard the integrity of their plan's member data. They must protect their plan's enrollment systems from identity theft as well as criminals who create fake identities out of an assortment of sometimes legitimate and stolen information.
