Insurance fraud can be committed by various parties, including applicants for
insurance, policyholders, third-party claimants and insurance professionals. If
someone intentionally fakes an accident, injury, theft, arson or other loss (or
does something worse, for example, a life insurance beneficiary killing an
insured) to collect money illegally from insurance companies, this is insurance
Most of the insurance anti-fraud laws are state statutes. Therefore, it is the state insurance departments, state attorneys general and county district attorney's offices that do most of the investigation, enforcement and prosecution of insurance fraud cases.
However, some insurance fraud cases are prosecuted by federal authorities because the fraudulent activity (doctor illegally using prescription drugs, doctor diluting medication resulting in injury or death of patients, unnecessary surgeries, murder) also violates federal law. Other federal prosecutions include violations of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, Section 1033 (used to prosecute anyone engaged in the business of insurance - executives, employees, sales agents - who participates in the perpetration of insurance fraud). And, of course, it is the federal authorities who prosecute Medicare, Medicaid (federal and state laws) or Tri-Care (military insurance) fraud.
Because conviction for insurance fraud can result in serious penalties (mandatory restitution of lost income, loss of professional license and substantial prison sentences) and because defense in such a case can be complicated, expert attorney is critically important. Contact a qualified and experienced insurance fraud attorney at Joffe Law if you are under investigation for or have been charged with insurance fraud.
