ATLANTA & NEW ORLEANS -- March 5, 2013

LexisNexis^®Risk Solutions today announced that the company will participate
in HIMSS 2013, focusing on how identity management tools can help to detect
and prevent fraud, waste and abuse in government and private sector health
care programs, and assist hospitals and provider networks in better
understanding and serving patients.

In February, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued its annual list
of “High Risk” government programs, and its report noted that the Medicaid
program allocated improper payments to 7.1 percent of its providers, costing
the federal government $19.2 billion. Similarly, GAO noted that the Medicare
program was included as high risk this year in part because improper payments
were estimated to be more than $44 billion in 2012.

In Booth #3557, LexisNexis will highlight how its identity management
solutions assist with improper payments by addressing the patient’s,
provider’s or claimant’s identity up front. LexisNexis health care experts
will also discuss how government payers, commercial payers and providers can
improve patient and provider enrollment, reduce their exposure to fraud, and
ensure that only authorized users gain access to personal health information
and programs.

LexisNexis is hosting a public policy leaders networking breakfast at the
conference on Tuesday, March 5, featuring opening remarks by Bruce D.
Greenstein, Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals.

“In many cases, the payer or provider processing the information is relying on
what is reported by an individual accessing the health care system at any
point-of-care whether at registration or claims,” said Clint Fuhrman, National
Director, Government Health Care Programs, LexisNexis. “By determining: ‘Are
you who you say you are?’ and using identity management tools to assess ‘What
do I need to know about you?’ payers and providers can authenticate identities
and know they are providing the right services to the right people.”
