Comcare provides rehabilitation and workers’ compensation for Australian Government employees and for employees of organisations who self-insure under the scheme. One of the ways we can ensure a fair and equitable workers’ compensation scheme and that funds are used for their intended purpose is to receive information from the public about any suspected fraud.
If you have any information that may help us deal with fraud against the Comcare rehabilitation and compensation scheme or against Comcare as a statutory corporation, you can:
- Complete the online form.
- Phone the Comcare fraud hotline during business hours and speak with Comcare’s Fraud Response unit phone 03 9627 5474.
- Phone 1300 366 979 and ask to speak with an investigator in the Fraud Response unit.
- Phone 1300 366 979 during business hours and ask to speak with the Fraud Prevention or Fraud Detection Officers.
