A healthcare provider who performed Functional Capacity Evaluations (F.C.E.’s), examinations designed to gauge employees’ abilities to perform their pre-injury job functions, has been sentenced to three years’ deferred adjudication and ordered to pay $10,000.00 in restitution by a Travis County District Court.  Marcus Ricoy of Rancho Viejo was found guilty of falsifying medical claims to an insurer for more time than the examinations required.  The Division of Workers’ Compensation’s unit in the Travis County District Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case.
