(Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA) - Fair Isaac Corporation (NYSE:FIC), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced that the company will team with FairPay Solutions, a premier specialty review company, to offer enhanced workers' compensation services. The agreement will enable Fair Isaac to offer FairPay's cost containment analytics services to Fair Isaac clients in 47 states, including licensed and ASP clients of Fair Isaac SmartAdvisor® workers' compensation medical bill review software, and outsourced bill review customers of the company's Insurance Service Bureau.

Fair Isaac's technologies for medical bill review are designed to maximize savings and increase productivity for insurers.

"FairPay specializes in controlling charges for hospital and ambulatory surgery center services," said Richard Leonardo, President of FairPay's Workers Compensation Division. "We do this by establishing baseline payment amounts based on the cost of providing specific medical services and then adding a market-based profit margin. We are delighted to be working closely with Fair Isaac's team to bring our innovative, analytics-based products to Fair Isaac's loyal customers. We look forward to supporting Fair Isaac's commitment to delivering long-term value to workers' compensation and auto liability payors."

"This agreement can help enhance our already proven cost-containment services for our clients. It also underscores Fair Isaac's commitment to help our clients manage their workers' compensation and auto medical costs more effectively."
