The new prosecution unit of the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation, has obtained indictments against a Massachusetts company and three individuals for organized crime activity pertaining to workers’ compensation fraud. The indicted defendants are EME International Inc. and Christine Caldwell, both of Marblehead, Massachusetts, and Enrique Colon and Marcos Ricoy of Deer Park, Texas and Rancho Viejo, Texas, respectively. 

Charges include submitting false workers’ compensation health care claims to Texas Mutual Insurance Company pertaining to functional capacity evaluations of injured workers. The defendants are alleged to have submitted false medical claims for more time than the services required in order to defraud the insurance company in an amount between $20,000 and $100,000.

The indictment is the first step in the trial process. We will keep you posted as the cases develop.
