Effectively fighting fraud is an important step to keep insurance costs down and protect California employers and employees.
The California State Legislature defined workers' compensation fraud in 1991 and imposed penalties on those involved in fraudulent activities. The legislation, combined with insurance industry programs, brought a dramatic new focus to fighting fraud, that has resulted in many arrests and convictions. State Fund continues its efforts by fighting all types of workers’ compensation fraud, including.
- Premium Fraud
- Claims Fraud
- Provider Fraud (medical, legal, and other service providers)
