Insurance fraud occurs when one party misrepresents a fact or makes a lie in order to receive a financial gain under an insurance policy. The party guilty of insurance fraud may include:

  • Agents
  • Adjusters
  • Doctors and hospitals
  • Consumers

Insurance fraud claims affect more than just the insurer.

Insurance fraud often drives up insurance premiums because companies will often divide losses from fraud claims among policyholders. It has been estimated that insurance fraud costs consumers about $150 billion per year, which equals about an additional $1,000 per family in insurance premiums.
