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.
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.
