Every year insurance fraud costs the U.S. $80 billion dollars, which is ultimately passed down to consumers. When the numbers are broken down, the total cost per family comes out to about $950 dollars a year.  According to the Florida Division of Insurance Fraud, fraudulent insurance claims tie up the system and raise the rates for everyone else.

The Division of Insurance Fraud has six regions located throughout the state of Florida, each one commanded by a law enforcement captain, and 23 squads supervised by a lieutenant. Additionally, the Division consists of 150 sworn officers and 46 civilian support staff members.
