CHESTERFIELD, Mo., Feb. 12th, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Healthcare Fraud Shield, a company focused solely on providing the best fraud, waste, and abuse solutions to the healthcare industry now offers SIU Services to healthcare insurance payers to complement their Fraud, Waste, and Abuse platform FWAShield.

SIU Services include lead generation, identification of plan vulnerabilities, comprehensive case investigations, medical record reviews, training services and more.
