Daniel Bills – Director of Field Investigations

Daniel Bills is the Director of Field Investigations at Alliance Risk Group Inc., directing surveillance and SIU investigations for insurance and corporate professionals. Dan has worked at Alliance for nearly 13 years and ensures client satisfaction by meeting our brand promise to provide actionable intelligence and measure claimant activity metrics. An average of 91.6% of our preliminary investigations return the actionable intelligence our clients need to determine the best course of action to proceed with their claim. Our claimant activity average ratio is 72.2% of cases. This is measured by observing claimants whose identities have been verified. Clients are notified if there are contradictions to the stated injuries that could potentially be used in a fraud finding or if there is a truthful report of injury for settlement purposes. In addition to overseeing operations, Dan maintains business relationships and coordinates Alliance’s growing list of service offerings including remote surveillance, preliminary claimant investigations, activity checks, special investigations, clinic investigations and medical/pharma canvass.
