Fighting Fraud

The truth is we all pay for insurance fraud. But it doesn't need to flourish. Every one of us, whether employee or employer, can do our part to stop it. Not only does ill-begotten benefit dollars add cost to the system, it also serves to undermine the plight of legitimately injured workers who deserve every payment.  

Our stance on fraud
MEMIC takes a zero tolerance approach to workers' comp fraud or abuse. Our special investigation unit investigates 15 to 20 percent of all lost-time claims. That's 2 to 3 times the industry average.
