Workers’ Compensation and Insurance Fraud Unit (WCIFU)

The WCIFU was created in 1992 to investigate Workers’ Compensation (WC) Fraud. It then expanded to include Insurance Fraud in 1999. The unit has investigated and prosecuted well over 1,000 individuals and recovered, ordered restitution, and financially impacted a savings of several millions of dollars during the time of its existence.

The Unit endeavors to keep all participating individuals and entities in the workers’ compensation and insurance business models accountable. This includes claimants, businesses, medical providers, insurance companies and legal representatives.

The Unit personnel include Prosecutors, Agents, Investigative Analyst and Legal Assistant.

Yes, you can. Just put ‘ANONYMOUS’ on the complaint form indicating your desire to remain anonymous. We still ask that you please leave your contact information on the Form in case we require further information. But at NO time will you be mentioned beyond the complaint form.

ONLY online submissions will receive an automatic DO NOT REPLY confirmation email, all others will not receive a confirmation. Not everyone will be contacted after submission unless further questions or information are needed. The filing of a complaint/referral does not ensure an investigation will be initiated.

Each complaint/referral are logged, reviewed, and given consideration once received. However, with each complaint/referral being different and unique, filing a complaint/referral does not necessarily ensure an investigation will be pursued.
