Cracking Down on Insurance Fraud
Information Security Media Group – a media company specializing entirely on information technology risk management for vertical industries, recently interviewed Medical Business Associates, Inc. President & CEO Rebecca Busch for her thoughts and commentary for a podcast “Cracking Down on Insurance Fraud.”
Rebecca highlighted the fact that a good foundation based on fraud risk assessments needs to be established to fight fraud. She also points out that insurers and providers need to regularly audit all network activity to assess risk and potential vulnerabilities where holes might be found.
Her opinion on Healthcare Reform – it might lead to an increase in insurance fraud in the short term as information systems are adjusted and new rules are implemented but should eventually decrease fraud, as more individuals will receive health coverage.
