Why trust CLEAR
Prevent provider fraud within programs
Fraud, waste and abuse committed by healthcare providers is a growing trend resulting in billions of dollars of loss to government programs and beneficiaries. With tens of thousands of providers offering treatment and services, it’s easy to see how criminal and fraudulent activity can go unnoticed by Program Integrity professionals.
How CLEAR helps
The easiest way to prevent provider fraud is to stop bad actors or known fraudsters from entering the healthcare programs to begin with. CLEAR provides nation-wide access to credit header information, criminal records and NPI records to ensure fraud stays out of your programs.
Fighting the opioid epidemic
Daily, reports surface regarding the impact of opioid incidents on families, and the associated costs on Government agencies. You need trusted resources that can help identify prescribers who may be overprescribing and conducting pain management fraud – protecting the communities you serve.
How CLEAR helps
Thoroughly investigating suspected or reported fraud, waste and abuse takes time and resources. CLEAR delivers you with trusted personal and professional records to look into past criminal history, fraud activity, or program and patient abuse. This means you can be more confident you are finding new information to continue your investigation.
Determine validity of identities
As identity theft and financial fraud continue to grow, government program risk increases with the wide span of programs and perceived loopholes by fraudsters. Even using a small fraction of a real identity, fraud, waste and abuse against programs using synthetic identities creates new issues for Program Integrity professionals.
How CLEAR helps
CLEAR is a fully customizable solution designed to validate that an identity of a beneficiary exists, enabling agencies to prioritize investigations for identities that may be falsified.
Manage vendor risk
Whether buying office supplies or reviewing vendors and businesses for large procurements, who your agency does business with creates risk for fraud, both intentional and unintentional. Completing the due diligence on the business and associated individuals is burdensome.
How CLEAR helps
Creating repeatable processes to evaluate vendors means you and your agency can be better protected from fraud. CLEAR allows you to automate and customize your risk analysis and vendor assessment to fit your unique decision-making requirements, enabling your team to move faster and act confidently in making decisions.
