Medical Canvassing

A Medical Canvass is a tailored telephone investigation by trained analysts, in efforts to confirm or deny a pre-determined claimant’s association with a specific health care service provider within a targeted geographical location.

There are typically 3 results that will be obtained from a medical canvas that include:

  • Confirmed

  • Limited

  • No Results

Medical Canvassing is one of the most cost effective avenues available to document a claimant’s medical history.

Medical canvassing is useful in order to: 

  • Determine if the claimant received treatment prior to the accident. 

  • Pinpoint whether injuries occurred outside of the workplace/incident. 

  • See if the claimant has a history of injury claims.

  • Assess if the injury is actually related to the claim

  • Determine if the alleged injuries are part of pre-existing medical conditions.  

  • Discover undisclosed treatments. 

  • Uncover addictions or a pattern of drug-seeking behavior. 

  • Substantiate or disprove the claimant’s statements.

  • Reveal possible material misrepresentations about the claim.

  • Provide specific information about treatments received for pre-existing conditions.


HIPAA Laws and Canvassing
