Investigating an insurance claim takes considerable resources, experience and time. Fortunately, at Bosco Legal Services, Inc., we have both time and experience. One service we offer is a medical background investigation. 

A medical background investigation uses a dual-method approach. It includes medical canvassing and social media investigations. These investigations gather the evidence you need to make accurate decisions about claims. This saves you time and money.

Top 3 Benefits of Medical Background Investigations 

There are many benefits to using a medical background investigation for your case. Below, we discuss three benefits of using this insurance claims investigation service. 

Benefit #1 Verifying Medical History

A medical background investigation can help you verify medical information. This information may be critical to your case. Examples include if a claimant sought medical treatment for a similar condition in the past or at another hospital. It could also include evidence that a claimant has a history of filing similar claims. Verifying medical history can help uncover potential fraud. 

Benefit #2 Verifying Undisclosed Information

In many cases, our investigators can uncover unknown medical information about the claimant. This is one of the main reasons why an insurance claims investigation is necessary. 

Medical information may include where the claimant suffered his or her injury. It can also include how the injury occurred. 

Benefit #3 Verifying Injury Information

A thorough medical background investigation can uncover information about the injury. It can also uncover information about the type of treatment received. 

A thorough social media investigation will uncover more information about the injury. Evidence that the claimant is not as injured as he or she claims could help your case. It may also result in evidence that the claimant performed activities that led to a worsening of the injury itself. This evidence would let you dispute the claim and the severity of the claimant’s injuries. 

Medical Background Investigations and Medical Canvassing

Medical canvassing is a component of a thorough medical background investigation. This process helps to uncover pre-existing illnesses and claims. It can help detect potential fraud. 

Investigators identify specific medical facilities near the claimant’s work, home and activities. They can also look at facilities near prior addresses up to ten years before the date of the incident. 

Medical canvassing gives insurance adjusters and law firms valuable data. This data can help them when investigating a variety of claims. These claims may include disability, workers’ compensation and bodily injury claims.
