Enrique Colon, a healthcare worker, was convicted of falsifying workers’ compensation claims.  Mr. Colon was indicted along with EME International, Inc. and two others on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity for over-billing for the exams. Mr. Colon was found guilty of submitting false medical claims to an insurer for more time than it actually took to perform functional capacity evaluations.

In response to the conviction, Cassie Brown, Commissioner of Workers’ Compensation, said: “Addressing fraud is vital to the health and success of the workers’ comp system here in Texas.  The [D]ivision is committed to protecting injured employees and policyholders from these schemes.”
