Incarceration Intelligence

Incarceration Intelligence prevents, detects, and recovers ineligible payments for entitlement programs.

Stop Cutting Checks to Ineligible Recipients

Incarceration impacts eligibility with nearly all public benefit programs. State government agencies face significant challenges when determining eligibility and distributing benefits to individuals moving in and out of incarceration.

Agencies spend hours, days, even weeks, attempting to locate and monitor individuals who are in various stages of the incarceration lifecycle. As a result of inaccurate and incomplete data, a general lack of agency resources, and inefficient processes, agencies consistently pay out billions of dollars in ineligible or fraudulent entitlement benefits each year.

Fast and accurate access to incarceration data can help your agency stay ahead of overpayments. Appriss’ Incarceration Intelligence solution provides access to the largest incarceration database in the nation−to stop improper payments before they happen.

Learn how Incarceration Intelligence can help your agency prevent improper payments, fight fraudulent claims and save taxpayer dollars.

Locate and Monitor Specific Populations

Through Incarceration Intelligence, agencies are able to place “watches” on their beneficiary or claimant lists. Watches enable agencies to continually monitor benefit recipients and send an alert if a recipient has been booked into jail. Appriss’ Incarceration Intelligence solution gives agencies access to accurate and timely data through a single information source. Automatically monitor specific populations, such as Medicaid beneficiaries, unemployment insurance claimants, hard-to-locate non-custodial parents, SNAP/TANF beneficiaries, state licensees, and probationers/parolees.

Incarceration Intelligence can be customized and configured for your state’s benefit eligibility criteria. Incarceration Intelligence works by matching Appriss’ incarceration data against your benefit recipient data to let you know if one of your recipients has been, or is currently, incarcerated. From there, your agency can review whether the individual-in-question qualifies for payment.
