A medical canvass is a tool that can make a huge impact on claim acceptance, denial, and resolution. It can provide a wealth of information and make a difference in a claim evaluation and settlement. This tool is especially useful when red flags are present, medical history is unclear or a need to authenticate treatment exists. The process involves a thorough search of a predetermined area(s) utilizing specific criteria targeting medical specialties to identify treatment the subject may have omitted in error or intentionally.
Medical canvassing is conducted by our skilled professionals using in part databases, public records, skills, and knowledge. They verify medical facilities and develop organic leads the subject may have visited and not previously disclosed.
Here are the major benefits of a medical canvass:
Identifying previously unknown medical treatment: A medical canvass can identify the location of medical treatment and facilities that the injured party may not have disclosed to the carrier or other medical providers. In some cases, the subject may not disclose medical treatment because they just do not remember, oversight, or are simply unaware of its relevance to the case.
Verifying medical treatment: A medical canvass can also verify the medical treatment the injured party has disclosed. This is important because medical records may contain critical information to establish a baseline of care, pre-existing conditions, or degree of severity.
Supporting the claims process: A medical canvass can help support the claims evaluation process by providing missing pieces of a medical history and filling critical gaps. This information can provide a sound basis for a negotiated settlements. At the other end, it can authenticate and support the foundation for a sound resolution.
Depositions, statements, and investigations: A canvass can assist in validating or refuting a statement or representations. In a deposition or trial setting, a medical canvass can surface non-disclosed issues that could be the difference between victory and defeat. Imagine the non-disclosure of treatment to a treating physician or IME. Adding a canvass, makes a world of difference when contemplating a medical or legal evaluation.
