Auditors to Review Denied Workers’ Comp Claims in North Dakota

November 30, 2009

Auditors will take a new look at denied workers’ compensation claims in North Dakota and also will study the laws defining eligibility for certain benefits.

The performance audit of Workforce Safety and Insurance will review its operations in 2008 and 2009.

Reviews last year came to different conclusions on whether some claims were appropriately denied.

The new performance audit by a Memphis, Tenn.-based firm also will study North Dakota’s laws limiting payment of claims for workers with pre-existing conditions or degenerative diseases such as arthritis.

The findings are expected by late next summer, giving state lawmakers time to draft proposed legislation for the 2011 session if they believe new laws are needed.
