Report Workers' Compensation Fraud
We can only fight workers’ compensation insurance fraud with your help. There are several types of insurance fraud:
Employee/ Claimant Fraud: where a person files for a claim or an injury that was not work-related or that never occurred.
Billing/Provider Fraud: where a provider bills for services never rendered or for more time/services than actually provided.
Premium/Insured Fraud: committed by underreporting payroll or misclassifying payroll/job classifications.
People who aid these others: such as people who provide clients for doctors or attorneys, or anyone who accepts, requests, offers or gives any consideration for a referral for evaluation or consultation.
