As part of our mission to effectively and proactively prevent losses to the workers’ compensation system and to deter, detect, investigate and prosecute workers’ compensation fraud, we recognize the importance of educating and informing our stakeholders about how they may join us to combat fraud.
That’s why we annually schedule and conduct dozens of fraud presentations to groups of internal and external stakeholders throughout the state. These groups have included other BWC departments, public and private employers, third party administrators, medical providers, MCOs and members of associations, such as chambers of commerce, safety councils and bar associations.
During fiscal year 2015, we conducted 44 presentations describing and demonstrating how we accomplish our mission. Our SID employees share examples of successful cases and furnish all attendees with the means to detect and report suspected fraud.
In the photo below SID Special Agent in Charge Shawn Fox walks attendees of BWC’s 2016 Safety Congress & Expo through the steps he and his staff took when investigating the Hammond fraud case. More on that case here.
We welcome requests for fraud presentations from all interested organizations. To schedule a fraud presentation, simply e-mail your request to Jeffrey.B.email@example.com and we will promptly contact you to discuss your group’s event.
We hope you’ll contact us and look forward to meeting you soon!
