International Fraud Awareness Week: BWC and workers’ comp fraud

We’re the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and we’re tough on fraud.Fraud Awareness Week 2014

BWC is partnering with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners for International Fraud Awareness Week to educate the public and prevent future occurrences of fraud.

Since 1993, BWC’s Special Investigations Department has researched and reviewed more than 112,405 allegations of workers’ compensation fraud, and completed 61,359 investigations and identified $1,621,856,667 in savings.

Workers’ compensation fraud can be committed by an injured worker faking an injury to get some time (and money) away from work, a medical provider who is overbilling, or an employer isn’t truthful about the amount of payroll reported for workers’ compensation premiums. These are merely a few examples.

For Fraud Week, we’re expanding our usual Fraud Friday coverage into a week’s worth of tips, articles and new cases here on our blog, ohiobwcfraud.wordpress.com, and also on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Stay tuned!
