"Celent estimates that the amount of fraud that is actually addressable ranges from 1% to 4% of claims or expenses in the different sectors of the insurance industry," said Donald Light, senior analyst and author of the report.
Light continued, "Fraud identification technology ranges from very simple to very sophisticated. Available technology and tools include: red flags, predictive modeling, neural networks, profiling, claims databases, identity matching, link analysis, and investigation management. A good fraud mitigation program will combine several technologies and methods, using vendor-supplied tools and working with vendor professional services groups."
