Baltimore Company Admits Defrauding W.Va. Workers’ Comp Agency

June 26, 2006

A defunct Baltimore company has pleaded guilty in Charleston, W. Va. to a federal fraud charge for billing the state of Workers’ Compensation Division for services that were never provided.
RTW Rehabilitation Services Inc., which admitted submitting fraudulent bills between 1999 and 2003, was ordered Thursday to pay $90,000 in fines and restitution by U.S. District Judge John Copenhaver Jr.

The company and its president, Michael Stern, agreed to never do workers’ compensation business in West Virginia again.
RTW went out of business in March 2004.
