Roger Morris, NICB

Roger Morris, Chief Communications Officer at the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) says employees who take advantage of the system are driving up workers compensation costs in the United States. Mr. Morris notes that “malingering” is a major contributor to fraud in workers comp.  Malingering happens when an employee collects indemnity checks and drives up medical costs beyond the period of the medical disability. While it is difficult to identify or prosecute “malingering”, companies need a work-base system to monitor the progress of employees on workers comp.
