Way too many bad, shady, illegal things have happened in OWCP federal workers compensation. I've been involved in federal workers comp for more than a decade, but it wasn't until I went to Florida in the past year that I realized that some very bad people came before me that left a terrible mark on the industry.
There was a guy in Tampa that was "referring" patients to doctors for a percentage of the collections. What??? Everybody knows this is illegal. But it was happening. Referring injured workers to a doctor in exchange for money from those patients is terrible. That guy didn't care about the injured worker. He only cared about his money. HE WENT TO JAIL!
Another group took advantage of the system and billed for things in a way that can only be referred to as "abusive". To this group, the injured worker was a dollar sign. Greed! THOSE GUYS WENT TO JAIL!
