Emdeon Inc. (NYSE:EM) will be adding the FICO Insurance Fraud Manager system from Fair Isaac Corp. to its health payer processing system.

Emdeon, Nashville, Tenn., helps connect 1,200 insurers and other payers through the processing network.

FICO, Minneapolis, says the alliance will give health insurers access to the same kinds of fraud detection tools that credit card companies have been using to identify questionable transactions.
