A Medical Canvass is an in-depth telephone research analysis designed to uncover pre-existing claims and injuries. Medical Canvasses provide an excellent, cost-effective method to determine your Claimant’s medical treatment history.
Global Bureau offers various levels of Medical Canvasses ranging from our basic facility checks to our most advanced package to meet our client’s needs. We have accumulated a national database of all hospitals, pharmacies, and doctors, therapy providers, radiology centers, and all health care providers allowing our Analysts to perform a geo-targeted area search to find when and where a claimant may have received medical treatment.
Canvassing can assist all lines of insurance associated with any bodily injury claim (Workers’ Compensation, Auto Bodily Injury, Disability, etc.). Regardless of the line of insurance involved, the key point of consideration is that at any time a claimant and/or their attorney may knowingly withhold information pertaining to a claimant’s medical treatment history.
Identify and defend against possible insurance fraud:
Verify treatment and confirm the alleged date of injury
Assess in an injury is truly related to the claim
Discover previous treatment for a similar injury
Determine if the claimant has a history of prior claims
Equip you with the knowledge of where and when the claimant has been treated, which can be useful in a deposition
Bring to light treatment in another geographic location
Dispute the extent of the injury
Locate the claimant's primary care physician
Confirm gym and sports club memberships
Uncover addictions or drug-seeking behavior with a pharmacy canvass, or even by searching substance abuse counselors and treatment centers
Determine whether the claimant has a history of depression, anxiety or sleep disorders by requesting a canvass of pharmacies and/or sleep testing centers
Substantiate or disprove the claimant's complaints and treatment history
