Cotiviti to Share Solutions for Preventing Fraud, Waste, and Abuse at the 2022 NHCAA Annual Training Conference

November 13, 2022

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Cotiviti, a leader in data-driven healthcare solutions, will present on preventing healthcare fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA) at the 2022 National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association (NHCAA) Annual Training Conference in Orlando, Florida, taking place November 15–18, 2022. Cotiviti will be joined by Highmark Wholecare, a health plan serving more than 350,000 members in Pennsylvania, to discuss how to prevent wasteful and abusive claims from being paid while remaining within strict fraud compliance guidelines.

“Minimizing FWA exposure is top-of-mind for all payer organizations, but accomplishing this goal with frequently overburdened special investigative units (SIUs) is challenging,” said Matthew Hawley, executive vice president of payment integrity operations for Cotiviti. “From Cotiviti’s decades of experience working with the top payer organizations, we have developed a unique and powerful approach to prepay waste and abuse prevention. We look forward to discussing how we help plans protect the integrity of their claims payment processes and deliver better outcomes for their members.”

Cotiviti has launched innovative product solutions and partnered with payer clients covering more than 40 million members to implement prepay Claim Pattern Review and postpay FWA Management solutions in 2021 and 2022.

In this session at NHCAA’s Annual Training Conference, Jennifer Putt, CFE, SIU manager for Highmark Wholecare, will join Cotiviti to discuss how combining claims-based and provider-centric reviews, conducted both before and after claims payment, can prevent inappropriate spending while meeting prompt-pay deadlines. The team will share best practices for effectively detecting suspicious patterns, shifting from reactionary to real-time FWA prevention, and leveraging analytics to better identify billing pattern shifts.

This panel will draw on Cotiviti’s work from more than 20 years providing FWA solutions to clients while driving results with prepay and postpay technologies that integrate within its full payment integrity solution suite.

Cotiviti is a platinum sponsor of the NHCAA conference. The session will take place Wednesday, November 16 from 11:30 am–12:30 pm in the Regency Ballroom Q. To learn more, visit booth #301 or visit Cotiviti’s website.
