You will report into the SIU Director, who reports to the Compliance Officer.


  • Develop and expand your knowledge of FWA trends and schemes to efficiently intake and evaluate reports of FWA received by the SIU.  Review data and gather evidence to assign priority levels, assess reporting obligations based on state(s) impacted, and maintain a pipeline of investigations into known or suspected FWA to be assigned to the investigators.
  • Coordinate and fulfill responses to Requests for Information (RFI), Subpoenas, Regulators, and internally received within the SIU.
  • Coordinate and complete assigned annual reportings and filings ensuring required responses are received within deadlines.
  • Conduct preliminary investigations of out of network providers, including reviewing data, building a case file, gathering evidence, and recommending next steps.
  • Provide support to investigators as requested to include performing interviews of members and contacting providers.
  • Gather and prepare reporting as assigned for internal use.


  • Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice, Business or similar
  • 2+ years of health insurance experience
  • Experience handling confidential information and adhering to policies, rules, and regulations
  • Highly organized with a high level of attention to detail
  • Enjoy complex problem solving and are willing to consider multiple possible solutions or causes.

  • Knowledge of applicable fraud statutes and regulations, and of federal guidelines on recoupments and other anti-FWA activity

  • Experience with HIPAA, data privacy, and/or data security processes
  • Experience working with regulators governing (public or private) health insurance carriers
