'Never before have different parts of the insurance system cross-pollinated to seek new ways to prevent fraud.'

WASHINGTON, June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The newly formed Consortium to Combat Medical Fraud, a joint project of the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association and the National Insurance Crime Bureau, along with participation from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice, announced today their national agenda to aggressively pursue the perpetrators of medical fraud. The Consortium is designed to create a more open and collaborative environment between different segments of the insurance industry to heighten the detection and prevention of health care fraud.

"Never before have different parts of the insurance system cross-pollinated to seek new ways to prevent fraud. This approach will break down barriers and increase awareness across insurance lines so that we share information and coordinate our approach more systematically," said Louis Saccoccio, Executive Director, National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association.

"By unleashing this group's collective resources against both organized crime as well as individual perpetrators, the Consortium will intensify the battle against fraud in our insurance system," said Gary Healy, Director of Operations for the Mid-Atlantic, National Insurance Crime Bureau.

Insurance fraud today is the most sophisticated in the industry's history. Organized crime, as well as individuals, set up elaborate schemes designed to attack this nation's health care system where it is most vulnerable. This Consortium will address this by increasing collaboration in a number of ways:

* Sharing information across industry and among stakeholders;

* Leveraging industry best practices;

* Influencing the public policy debate and shaping the future agenda; and

* Optimizing and aligning objectives of various associations. <
