Employees who handle claims are a company’s first line of defense against insurance fraud, so it is critical that every employee involved in any phase of the claims process be trained to deter, detect and defeat fraud.
(PRWEB) January 04, 2012
WeComply, Inc., a leader in web-based ethics and compliance training for corporate employees, has released a new Insurance Fraud course for claims personnel and other employees of insurance companies who deal with the claims process. This course explains the most common forms of insurance fraud, highlights the “red flags” of fraudulent activity, and helps employees respond appropriately if they encounter signs of fraud.
The course is intended to fulfill the training requirements of the 14 states that mandate anti-fraud training for claims personnel and those involved with their company's Special Investigative Unit (SIU). It covers fraud indicators in various insurance contexts, emerging fraud trends, recordkeeping requirements and referrals to the SIU.
“Fraudulent insurance claims cost U.S. companies between $80 and $120 billion each year,” said Mike Pallatta, WeComply CEO. “Employees who handle claims are a company’s first line of defense against insurance fraud, so it is critical that every employee involved in any phase of the claims process be trained to deter, detect and defeat fraud.”
