Covert Business Solutions is a private investigation firm that has years of experience in providing investigative services to insurance companies, government entities, corporate organizations, small business, attorneys and the general public. We specialize in the investigation of auto liability and worker’s compensation claims, to include first and third-party liability and commercial claims and product liability investigations. Outside of the insurance arena, we conduct “skip traces,” witness locates, litigation support to include background investigations, social media searches, asset identification, pre-employment background investigations and loss prevention or shrinkage related investigations.
In addition to liability investigations, we also provide Special Investigation Unit (SIU) services for those clients who want or need assistance in the identifying and handling of suspected fraudulent claims. We offer claim file review for any red flag indicators and complete SIU file handling. From the initial fraud referral from the claims examiner through all of the field work and interviews and filing of any mandated fraud referrals to NICB/DOI, Covert Business Solutions will be your one-stop shop for all things fraud related. In 2017, our investigations produced evidence that resulted in the withdrawal of 54 suspected fraudulent claims.
