Data Security

Heffler consistently maintains a well-controlled and secure servicing environment to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of collected information. Our team puts both physical and digital barriers in place, protecting settlement and class member data while following the highest regulations for data protection.

  • Resources – We make ongoing investments in people, processes, and technology to ensure that our infrastructure, communications, and security measures are up-to-speed with the latest developments and market demands. All data is secured within a hardened datacenter storage environment.

We practice General HIPAA Compliance, utilize up-to-date privacy policies, have strict document retention policies, and follow encryption and key management. In addition, all employees are trained and re-trained annually on HIPAA security and privacy, including temporary staff.

Quality Control

Data breach cases can mean large class sizes and a large volume of claimants.

  • Quality Assurance Program for Accuracy – Heffler follows stringent quality assurance methods and procedures designed to establish controls over the accuracy of claims data. These built-in methods and procedures are incorporated during the entire administration process and prior to issuing a final report to verify the accuracy of recognized claim amounts, the implementation of plans of allocation, and the validity of remaining deficient and rejected claims.
  • Careful Review of Claims and Calculations – During the claim administration process, we conduct a review of claims in which both the work of the claims analyst and the details of the claims are examined for any deficiencies or rejection coding. We also review calculations of the recognized claim amounts under the plan of allocation for accuracy.
  • Fraud Loss Prevention – Heffler generates quality assurance reports wherein certain claims are identified as duplicates and claims filed by suspected or known fraud claim filers. Also, our supervisory staff conducts manual reviews for the largest claim groups for assurance of the validity of the claims. We keep a detailed procedure log as part of our quality assurance process for every claim handled. This provides a document of procedures utilized during the notice and claims administration processes.
