Welcome to FierceHealthPayer: AntiFraud

Dear Readers;

We're pleased to announce that today marks the launch of our tenth and newest healthcare newsletter: FierceHealthPayer: AntiFraud. Part of our growing family of FierceHealthPayer publications, we developed this free, unique news resource to meet the specific needs of the compliance, risk management and special investigative teams within health payer organizations.

Best of all, it's written by one of your own. Editor Jane Antonio is a 27-year veteran of the health insurance industry, and held leadership positions in corporate compliance and utilization review for a major U.S. health plan. She understands the unique challenges of identifying and fighting fraud, waste and abuse--and she is no stranger to what she calls the "the long hours of analytical work behind the scenes, [and] the hard slogging that makes success in this field possible."

Our goal at FierceHealthPayer: AntiFraud is to bring you news and distinctions to support your casework and corporate anti-fraud strategy, Jane writes in today's inaugural issue. "Effective fraud detection depends on awareness of fraudulent schemes in the industry and staying on top of new trends."

Jane has honed this special awareness through years of working in the trenches. As a result, she'll bring a unique voice of authority to FierceHealthPayer: AntiFraud that readers won't find anywhere else.

Each week, Jane will provide only the most relevant news, analysis and trends for compliance and anti-fraud professionals care about most--providing these unique readers with information that's been carefully vetted by one of their own.

A subscription to our weekly newsletter won't cost you a dime--but the information it delivers could end up saving your organization millions of dollars. As Jane says, "May this publication serve you well."
