SHIELD™

A provider vetting program for your Medical Claim Portfolio

Our SHIELD program seeks to protect and save your medical claim portfolio proactively.

Our provider-vetting has a unique identifier which recognizes providers that are indicted, criminally charged, suspended, or have controlling interests in another entity from your medical claim portfolio. Our HEAT software system is designed to not only flag providers that have been stayed or suspended in the workers’ compensation system, it can also detect providers that have already been criminally charged, before the DIR declaration.

By applying SHIELD in your bill review, MPN, RFA, and lien program, you avoid paying providers needlessly.
