Maryland Workers’ Comp Writer Offers Free Anti-Fraud Kit

April 23, 2007

Maryland workers’ compensation insurance carrier IWIF is offering a fraud-fighting toolkit designed to help its policyholders, insurance agents and business owners combat fraud.

The free kit defines the various types of workers’ comp fraud. It includes ‘Red Flags of Fraud,’ a list of warning signs of possible claimant fraud; actual case summaries of recent fraud convictions; and two anti-fraud posters for employers to post in their workplaces.

Furthermore, the kit explains how the law distinguishes between fraud and betterment. “Sometimes, what appears to be fraudulent activity, especially pertaining to claimants, turns out to be a case of betterment, not theft,” explains Jerry Landsman, IWIF director of fraud.
