Reducing benefit fraud and preserving program integrity
You’re being pulled in many directions, responsible for managing benefits for a large population of recipients. You know that ineligible recipients could be costing your agency millions of dollars but you don’t have the analytical tools that can help you pinpoint benefit abusers. You don’t know the extent of overpayment because you lack a means to track it.
Your agency lacks the people, time and data access to determine which individuals are fraudulently receiving benefits. With data access limited to your state’s Department of Corrections database, you can’t search other states’ incarceration databases to locate individuals who may be fraudulently receiving benefits.
There’s no money in your budget to hire additional staff to weed out ineligible recipients. Your agency’s integrity is being compromised and overpayment to ineligible recipients is a serious problem.
With real-time access to 80% of the nation’s incarceration data, you and your staff can more efficiently locate ineligible recipients across the U.S. Thanks to your data solution, you’re successfully weeding out benefit abusers without additional staff for conducting searches. You know your data source is timely and reliable.
You can now automatically monitor specific populations you select, ranging from hard-to-locate non-custodial parents to unemployment insurance claimants and Medicaid beneficiaries. With staff time freed up from manually searching multiples data sources, they can refocus their energies on helping eligible recipients
Your agency is working more productively, significantly reducing overpayments, and enhancing the integrity of your program.
Social service agencies understand the need to address the challenges of working with a justice-involved population. Our solution provides value to agencies by monitoring beneficiaries across the incarceration lifecycle, from initial booking to release.
Incarcerated individuals are not eligible for most government benefits. Appriss helps you check for an applicant’s current incarceration status and receive alerts when any of your population is booked into jail or has served for a certain length of stay.
Access to food and healthcare is essential for released inmates. Appriss notifies state agencies when a previously eligible beneficiary has been released from incarceration. Our solution allows you to expedite access to key benefits, improving program participation and reducing the likelihood of recidivism.
