The health care insurance specialist, Westfield Health, has won its fifth award in less than a month.
Executive director, Julie Gill, was named Best Newcomer Investigator at the Health Insurance Counter Fraud Group’s Investigator Awards. Fellow industry professionals nominated Ms Gill for her work, which includes revising policies and setting up an in-house fraud team and for her role in hosting and chairing national meetings for the sector.
She said: “I am delighted our efforts to counter fraud have been recognised by our peers within the industry for having a significant impact. This is a great achievement, not just for me but for the whole team, as it demonstrates that Westfield takes fraud very seriously and is assisting others in the national health insurance arena in the fight against this crime.”
As well as improving its own procedures, Westfield has also been sharing information with others in the industry to help the private medical insurance sector fight fraud.
