CEO/Office of Risk Management aggressively
investigates any indication of fraud in any claim made
for liability or workers' compensation benefits either
by claimants or service providers. The anti-fraud control
systems are built into both the Workers' Compensation
Program and Liability Claims Program. Staff of CEO/Office
of Risk Management and our contractors actively partner
with the Department of Insurance, local law enforcement,
and the Orange County District Attorney's Office in the
investigation and prosecution of fraud.
Can I really make a difference
if I suspect fraud?
Yes, there is a role that we all can
play in fighting insurance fraud and protecting tax dollars.
What can you do?
If you suspect that a claim filed with
the County of Orange is untrue, that a claimant or any
service provider is "padding" their bill, faking
an injury or exaggerating the extent of the damage, share
your concerns with our office. By thoroughly examining
any suspicion of fraud, legitimate claims can be made
with confidence and paid with integrity.
If the claim relates to coverage by the County of Orange,
contact the CEO/Office of Risk Management and we will
begin the initial investigation and bring in the appropriate
law enforcement and District Attorney staff (Click
here for How To Contact Us.)
If the claim has not been made against the County of Orange,
but a private insurance company or another employer, do
not contact CEO/Office of Risk Management, as we have
no authority regarding these matters. Contact the District
Attorney's Office in the County where the fraud occurred,
or your local law enforcement agency.
