WAC 296-14-4125

How does the department calculate the amount of overpayment charged to a claimant when a determination of "willful misrepresentation" has been made in initial claim adjudication?

Overpayments are assessed in cases where there has been willful misrepresentation.
When it is determined that a claim was initially accepted as an industrial injury or occupational disease based on willful misrepresentation, the overpayment calculation includes all wage replacement benefits, permanent partial disability benefits, medical benefits, vocational benefits, and other medical aid fund benefits paid on the claim.
