It appears that the DWC is recycling administrative actions against medical providers, who have been out of any sort of practice for years; and then, calling them, newly suspended providers in the "Fraud Prevention" section of the DWC website. This would be relevant if that provider still had outstanding liens. However, with the current "statute of limitation," if a provider has been out of practice for ten years, and has no active liens, I see no viable pathway for them to ever claim any future payment. So, what is the point in the public shaming and placing them on the list placed in the "Fraud Prevention" section of the DWC website's list of newly suspended providers? What "Fraud" is being prevented by this action?

I agree, most of these doctors have no connection at all to the workers compensation system.
