Special Adjudication Unit

As a major step to combat fraud in the workers’ compensation system, AB 1244 added Section 139.21 to the Labor Code, which requires the Division of Workers’ Compensation to suspend certain medical providers from participating in the workers’ compensation system, including those who are convicted of a felony or misdemeanor involving fraud or abuse of any patient, the Medi-Cal or Medicare programs, or the workers’ compensation system itself. Labor Code section 139.21 provides for a hearing process regarding the suspension and a special lien adjudication procedure to address pending liens of those providers who are suspended based upon a criminal conviction.
