Medical Identity Monitoring
Medical Identity Theft is becoming an increasingly common issue, and if you’re not constantly monitoring claims being made to your account, you’re risking the effects of fraudulent medical claims.
Did you know? Healthcare data breaches occur nine times more than financial data breaches, which leaves consumer health information exposed.¹ Unfortunately, remediation for this type of identity theft is oftentimes difficult which can cause even further issues like inaccuracies in health records which may then lead to delay in treatment and even misdiagnosis.² It’s a terrible domino effect.
Knowing these facts help us understand what we need to do to protect ourselves. While reviewing your medical claims may be a simple task, completing that task only adds yet another thing to do in your already busy schedule. Even if we were to try and stay on top of this, many of us wouldn’t be as diligent as we should be.
That’s why IDSeal includes Medical Identity Monitoring in each full-spectrum plan. All that you must do is add your Medical ID for IDSeal to begin monitoring. Then, IDSeal takes it from there!
How Medical Identity Monitoring Works
This feature works to detect medical identity theft by monitoring new medical claim activities every day. Then, you’re given control to determine if the claims are legitimate or fraudulent. Claims are made by you? Great! If they aren’t, we’ll let you know the next steps that you should take.
Medical Identity Fraud doesn’t have to happen to you. If you’re not yet an IDSeal subscriber, visit our Protection & Plans page to learn more or sign up!
