Fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA) costs the healthcare system billions of dollars annually for a number of reasons. Inappropriate or fraudulent claims are often paid due to overwhelmed and insufficient staff, disparate record systems, incomplete data sets, and mandated processing efficiencies. Postpayment efforts typically result in recovery of 60–70% of verified waste and abuse—and just 5% of fraud.

In contrast, when Cotiviti’s Claim Pattern Review solution verifies a claim as being associated with waste, abuse or error, 100% of the incorrect payment is preventable. Claim Pattern Review analyzes prepay claims and other data points to identify suspicious patterns of FWA and prevent inappropriate claims from being paid while still meeting prompt-pay requirements. Our solution also flags suspicious providers that warrant immediate investigation, helping special investigations units (SIUs) build ironclad cases to stop bad actors sooner. Claim Pattern Review works in tandem with Cotiviti’s other prepay claim review solutions and postpay FWA pattern detection solutions.

Join Cotiviti for the 2022 NHCAA Annual Training Conference and learn what it means to be certain amid unrelenting changes in healthcare.

Speaking session: Remaining in fraud compliance while preventing more waste and abuse

Wednesday, November 16
11:30 am–12:30 pm
Regency Ballroom Q

By definition, healthcare fraud is the intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain. As such, alleging fraud requires that payers spend months if not years of work to prove intent, which cannot be addressed within prompt-pay deadlines of 45 days or less. So what exactly is FWA prevention the industry talks about so much? In this session, our experts will use examples of FWA trends to explain how a combination of claims-based and provider-centric reviews both post-payment and prepayment can help prevent waste and abuse while minding strict fraud compliance guidelines.

Attendees will:

  • Understand concepts and ideas of effective pattern detection
  • Learn how to apply the lessons learned and move from a reactionary mode to more real time prevention of FWA
  • Use analytics to help drive claim-based and provider-based investigation to better identify billing pattern shifts
