Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Protection Improves Claims Payment Accuracy and Saves Enterprise-wide Costs

“Healthcare fraud, waste and abuse (FWA) costs the insurance industry and government programs tens of billions of dollars each year, making it essential for payers to identify potential fraud situations prior to adjudication or audits.” —Context4Healthcare
