We specialize in all aspects of Workers’ Compensation investigations, Surveillance, Online Inquiries, Insurance Fraud, Workplace investigations, Liability Investigations and other related services.  Russell Hoy, Owner, CPI, CFS*, has been in service to the insurance claims industry since 1973, specializing in workers’ compensation investigations since 1974.  In 1991, after relocating to Sacramento, he has been assisting the Northern and Central California area with their investigations needs. Hoy & Associates was established in 1996 to more efficiently and effectively serve our clients. 

Today, we are seeing an ever-changing landscape in the California workers’ compensation system.  Claims are more complex, time-consuming and need knowledgeable claims personnel to manage them.  It takes a skilled team of claims professionals to successfully handle claims from inception to closure.  The need for accurate, detailed and timely information is critical.  The careful investigation of claims is an essential part of the claims handling process.  At Hoy & Associates, we understand this need and are committed to providing you with prompt, thorough investigations and reports.

We provide service to insurance companies, third-party administrators, self-insured employers and law firms.

We are licensed by Department of Consumer Affairs/Bureau of Security and Investigative Services as a Private Investigator** and carry professional liability insurance.  A Certificate of Insurance will be provided upon request.
