Investigation Toolbox

The sharing of information regarding emerging fraud schemes and suspected fraudulent providers between private plans and our government liaison partners or government agencies is a top priority for NHCAA. In order to maintain its position as the number one resource for anti-fraud initiatives, NHCAA consistently reviews and enhances its suite of fraud fighting tools to increase member benefits.


SIRIS® is a searchable database that consists of three data sets: one devoted to provider cases; another for health care fraud schemes; and a third that administers Requests for Investigation Assistance (RIAs) from our law enforcement partners.
