Claim Process for Crime Victims

Claim Approved


You may be eligible for the following benefits:

  • Medical/dental benefits.
  • Lost wages.
  • Medication coverage.
  • Mental health treatment.
  • Grief counseling.
  • Funeral expenses.

Payer of last resort

The Crime Victims Compensation Program (CVCP) is the "payer of last resort". The amount we pay is reduced by any public or private insurance payments.

Examples of public or private insurance are:

  • Your medical insurance.
  • Public health care such as Medicaid or Veterans Administration benefits.
  • Auto, life, or homeowner's insurance policies.


What do I have to pay?

You shouldn't pay any expenses for an allowed open claim. Providers must bill your public or private insurance first then bill CVCP.

By law, you shouldn't pay the difference between what your doctor charges and the rate CVCP pays.
