Claimant Fraud

SID regional claimant fraud investigations teams have dedicated staff located in most service offices throughout the state, exclusively investigating alleged fraud committed by claimants. These regional claimant fraud teams are assigned to one of three regions: Region 1 (Northeast); Region 2 (Southeast); and Region 3 (West).

Common Claimant Fraud Schemes:

  • “Work comp” or working while receiving lost time benefits;
  • “Physical activity” or malingering: engaging in physical activities that are
    inconsistent with the allowed conditions in the claim;
  • Drug complaints: abusing BWC prescribed drugs, doctor shopping and/or altering
    prescriptions;
  • Filing a false claim; and
  • Altering claim documents.
