a high price to pay
Workers’ Compensation Fraud violates Connecticut General Statute 31-290c (2019). If the benefits obtained through fraud exceed $2,000, the offense is a Class B felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
Fraud schemes have become increasingly more complex in recent years; staged-accident scenes and healthcare fraud scams are often sophisticated, scalable operations. Bad players can quickly adjust their approach to try and remain undetected.
