Washington Research Associates, a Washington D.C.-based investigative firm, has launched a website that it says will help insurance companies and attorneys detect insurance fraud and misrepresentation, especially in workers’ compensation and personal injury claims.E-MedicalTrace.com investigates an insurance claimant’s medical treatment history in search of unreported pre-existing conditions, including medical records and prescription medication records in the claimant’s geographic area. On average, the company said researchers contact about 20 hospitals and 25 pharmacies when compiling the reports.”This new service helps insurance claim adjusters and insurance attorneys quickly detect pre-existing medical conditions not reported by claimants,” said Joseph Ryan, director for Washington Research Associates. “Using our proprietary database of contact persons at hospitals and pharmacies nationwide, we produce an inexpensive and yet thorough finished report within [a few] business days. If the insurance claimant has sought hospital treatment or prescription medications within the past five years, this will be indicated in the report.”More information is available at E-MedicalTrace.com.
