According to the 2018 annual report published by the Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) and Division of Investigative and Forensic Services (DIFS) / Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Fraud (BWCF), Command’s SIU department accounted for:
- 15% of all employee claimant arrests in Florida
- 17% of all employee claimant convictions in Florida
- 65% of all ID theft arrests in Florida
- 50% of all ID theft convictions in Florida
The state of Florida requires insurers to have a designated anti-fraud unit that identifies, investigates and reports all matters involving insurance fraud.
“We hold ourselves to a very high standard as the outsourced SIU department for our clients, and it is vital that we not only meet, but exceed all of the anti-fraud reporting and compliance standards set forth under Florida Statute 626.9891, said Rich Perri, President of Command Investigations.
“It is critical that we identify, investigate and report on all suspicious claims, and we are honored to be part of the independent process that determines guilt and innocence within Florida’s justice system.”
Command’s nationally recognized SIU program focuses on anti-fraud compliance, annual training and mandatory investigation and reporting, which includes onsite consultations and enterprise-level reporting.
