Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features an interesting piece of news that comes from a source not often on our radar: the office of New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, which recently announced that its auditors had prevented more than $3.4 million in workers’ compensation overpayments during calendar year 2010.
DiNapoli’s auditors serve onsite at the Workers Comp Board and audit payments made out of the five funds used to pay comp claims. During the last four years, the Comptroller’s staff has apparently saved the state more than $65 million by preventing board overpayments.
