WorkCover insurance may be through the Government insurance, or a private provider (privately insured). In either case the insurer takes control, when a claim is lodged. It has been noted that, once a claim is accepted, that the insurer become a rehabilitation co-ordinator, not an investigative body concerned with fraud. Presumably this is because, once a claim is accepted, the costs shift to the employer; the costs calculated move from industry average to the actual history of the company, as the insurer does cost recovery.
WorkCover insurance, Workers Compensation insurance, exists to protect the worker. When it works properly, it does this well. Where it falls down is when the claim is fraudulent, where the complainant commits a fraud, costing the company now, and into the future. This is where the WorkCover investigator, the private investigator, comes into the picture. We are employed to confirm or deny suspicions, to verify facts, to gather evidence.
Indications of WorkCover fraud include an injury that keeps changing, getting worse not better, an initial injury that makes no sense, or that is without witnesses on the first day back, doctor shopping, refusal to engage in return to work activities, stopping communications, moving without advising the employer, where information comes to hand inconsistent with the claimed restrictions, where the injured worker starts up their own business whilst on compensation (without reporting improvements).
Evidence of WorkCover fraud can include affidavits, and hard evidence, from factual investigations. More often it is in the form of WorkCover surveillance evidence, showing inconsistencies between claimed restrictions and real world activity.
