When do CNA’s Deadly Paper Games become outright lies to Department of Labor?

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on July 19, 2012

How about now DOL ????

Documents showed that CNA reported the highest profits margins, taking in nearly 50 percent more in premiums than it paid out in benefits.

CNA’s Deadly Paper Games

After having defaulted on an Order to provide medical to an Injured War Zone Contractor for over 15 months, after denying for six years prior, CNA provides a computer printout to the Department of Labor Claims Examiner who was charged with  investigating this Default.

Not to give undue credit here, the Claims Examiner was trying to remedy the default per her job description, not confirm that they were in default.

Here is a copy and paste of the body of the correspondence, the full document has been forwarded to the DoL IG for investigation along with computer printout they attached.

Dear Mr Lee

Pursuant to Claims Examiners Kristina Hall’s request of January 3, 2012 and as a supplement to our response dated January 9, 2012, please find enclosed a payment printout showing payments issued by CNA International to medical providers regarding Mr. Clark.  The enclosed printout also shows the recent reimbursement payment of $1,270.34.

Defendents will continue to adjust medical invoices when and as received with accompanying medical reports.
Sounds just like they are paying for Injured War Zone Contractors  Medical over the years.  The reimbursement was for Out of Pocket presented in 2009 and clearly 15 months post order.

Problem here is that these payments were not for provided medical.

One is for a final report, not diagnoses or treatment, requested by CNA prior to hearing , that really made the Doctor mad over wasting his precious time, and the rest are for Defense Medical Examination’s.  Pages 3 and 4 were with held  but we suspect they include the parade of DME’s that were demanded.

The very abusive DME’s that were required repeatedly and outside of his geographic area.  The ones that ALJ Paul C Johnson assisted CNA with.

Not only did CNA represent these DME’s as having provided medical care for this Injured War Zone Contractor when in fact they did not, they reinforced the lie by stating that they will continue to do so.

CNA is currently under investigation for just this kind of unlawful and Overly Zealous Defense in denying Defense Base Act Claims

Unless that is, the DoL IG failed to investigate previous requests or are simply failing to provide documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

    Okay DOL, these guys, (CNA), are acting like they are above the law, they disregard any order a Judge gives them and lies to your face about it. (I’m directing this to the DOL)

    I’m sure you are busy with other important issues, but you are starting to look like the “fool”.

    If our President ordered our military out of a country, and our military ignored his orders, the people would “lose respect” for our leader, and then why should “anyone” listen to him.

    What I’m trying to get across to you is, if you don’t get control and see to it that these insurance companies follow the judges orders, the people might see you as “not really needed since your department isn’t accomplishing what it was designed to do. (See to it that everyone complies with the labor laws and up holds them.)

    You might find that the American people will replace you with a system that works.

    EVERYONE is sick and tired of the waste of the tax payers money.

    The blowing smoke has gone on too long. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

    As for the “Investigation of CNA’s under handed acts”, why don’t the “investigators” get “over zealous” with their investigation. What appears to be going on here is a lot of people are sitting back and collecting pay checks for work they are not doing while people are suffering.

    Anyone, Please correct me if I’m wrong here! I take corrective criticism well, and I apologize if Im misunderstanding this situation.

    You are correct! People ARE suffering, the DOL is not investigating these Insurance companies for their wrong doings. These people do not have any compassion for anyone but their own bank rolls. One day they will have to answer to God for ruining the lives of others!

  3. I’m glad to see names being connected to “Fraud” and “Perjury” being done by AIG and CNA that is what can only be titled as “Policy” with these insurance companies.

    Injured Contractors being dumped into this cesspool of their sold out lawyers, doctors who will submit reports as they are instructed, and our own doctors harassed so much it intentionally makes for the injured/patient to become just to much to deal with.

    Familiar wrongful actions by these companies over, and over….can only be “Planned Policy”.

    A consistent disregard of Federal Judges Orders, without penalty, over and over again….with intent, with plan.

    Criminal…is the only word.

    And that is exactly how all Contractors should expect and regard these companies and agents.

    When we go “Into Country” we are warned the most dangerous thing to become is “Complacent”,

    Who of us would ever have expected that that would needto be the warning once injured.

    Where the hell is our Government for us!?
