About the role

The SIU Investigator (Senior Analyst) primary purpose is to investigate change in aberrant behavior observed in claims and enrollment data. You will work independently to analyze data, and manage investigative caseload from identification through to resolution including overpayment recovery, measuring behavior change and completing necessary reporting to meet monetary and case load targets through investigations and internal process improvements– which should, at least initially, increase year-over-year – for FWA recoupments and savings.

You will report to the Senior Investigator, SIU.
