North Dakota WSI Workers Comp Was Given a Thumbs Up?


North Dakota WSI Denial Review Performed By CPA Firm

Recently, I read an article that said North Dakota WSI – their monopolistic WC agency – was audited by a group out of Maine that said only correct denials were issued on all of their Workers Comp claims.

-Please note- due to the legalities I have been informed that I cannot mention the audit company’s name, but only that they are CPAs and certified management consultants. I searched on their website for the words: workers compensation, workers comp, work comp. There were no search results.

I looked through the website for an adjuster, risk manager, or anyone with a risk or claims background. I came up empty there.

I looked at services and found Audit Services. I read through the web page and could find nothing on insurance or workers compensation audits.

Maybe I am missing something….or maybe North Dakota WSI missed something. I am confused as to how a claims denial audit was performed by a CPA firm. Then again, maybe their risk management and claims personnel are not listed on their website.

Their website caused more questions to be posed by me.

I have received no return calls after I left voice messages with three different departments of the North Dakota WSI.
