Workers’ Compensation Fraud Hurts All Policyholders
Workers’ compensation fraud may be carried out by claimants, employers, and medical providers. Although the vast majority of those participating in the workers’ compensation system are doing so legitimately, unfortunately, those who commit fraud are driving up the costs for everyone.
Workers’ compensation fraud is a crime. Under Rhode Island law, such fraud is punishable by civil and criminal penalties, including imprisonment. At Beacon Mutual, we take workers’ compensation fraud very seriously, and we are committed to being part of its solution.
