Bill that limits video surveillance by insurance firms of workers comp recipients passes House

A bill that would rein in video surveillance by insurance companies of workers comp recipients was approved in its third reading in the Colorado House.

House Bill 10-1012, sponsored by Democratic state Rep. Sal Pace, next heads to the Colorado Senate.

Under the bill, claimants would be allowed to ask for a hearing to find out why they are being investigated by the insurance company and individuals conducting the surveillance would be required to respond.

    As a California licensed private investigator that specializes in insurance surveillance, I'm interested in the progress of this House Bill. Private investigators, who conduct worker's compensation surveillance investigations in California already have an obligation to appear at a Worker's Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB) to show evidence, give testimony, and any other details the court may deem necessary.

    It sounds as though this bill will change nothing in regards to the conduct of how investigators perform their surveillance. This just appears to include additional rights for claimants in worker's compensation matters.
