Most people imagine workers’ comp fraud as an employee faking or exaggerating an injury in order to claim benefits, but did you know employers and even healthcare providers can participate in this kind of fraudulent activity as well?
Healthcare Provider Fraud- According to the California Department of Insurance, medical professionals can commit workers’ comp fraud by creating false or exaggerated claims, providing unnecessary treatments, and “over-prescribing harmful and addictive drugs.” When providers engage in this kind of behavior, they become white-collar criminals. In the most newsworthy stories, multiple parties are involved in out-of-this world conspiracies with false referrals, kickbacks, and even nonessential surgeries.
