On October 7, 2014, Investigators with the California Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) and the California Department of Insurance (CDI), along with the Nevada County District Attorney's Office and the U.S. Department of Labor, served a search warrant in connection with a Grass Valley psychologist suspected of Workers Compensation billing fraud.
"There is no shortage of insurance fraud in the State of California," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. "Our CSLEA members who are peace officers with DCA and CDI investigate case after case. They team with local district attorneys' offices and with law enforcement on the federal level to bring those who commit this type of crime to justice."
Pamlyn Kelly, PhD is suspected of fraudulently billing insurance companies for Workers Compensation services that were not provided. The investigation was initiated after a patient reported to the California Board of Psychology that his/her insurance was billed for appointments that never occurred.
Investigators suspect there may be other patients whose insurance was billed for services that were not provided. Those patients are asked to call Supervising Investigator Mark Loomis at (916) 263-2585.
