Call the Ombudsman at 800-927-1271 for help and to get it documented Zoe.
The problems that you are having is typical, and by design from past legislative efforts, You are suffering from Carrier fraud, They do this all of the time because they now that you have no recourse. Even if you do file a complaint with the sanctions group they can fine them only 25% of the cost of the claim, which from the amount you may be receiving for time loss isn't much of a fine.
And you will never know if they were fined, It is not like you will receive a letter from them complaining that they were fined because of you.
If the carrier has overpaid you, then you owe them, and believe me they will want it NOW, If they under pay you, then they take there time in correcting the MISTAKE, Like I said it is called FRAUD.
Call them every day or every hour, I have done this in the past. Sometimes it works and sometime it doesn't.
Right know their is no legal remedy to force the carriers into following the workers comp laws, This is by legislative design Zoe.
Your best bet is to call the Ombudsmans office.
