Simply stated, insurance fraud is the act of falsifying or exaggerating the facts of a claim to an insurance company in order to receive payment that would not otherwise be made. Common types of insurance fraud are staged accidents, exaggerated injuries, and inflated medical bills. In homeowners claims it may include faking a burglary, reporting old damage as new, or submitting inflated repair invoices.
Florida Peninsula employs an entire department of cross-trained associates whose sole mission is to detect, deter, and defeat insurance fraud. This division, known as the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), is comprised of individuals who have extensive investigative experience as well as insurance expertise.
Insurance fraud is perceived as a victimless crime, but the estimated losses from this crime exceed $100 Billion every year. Industry research finds one out of every ten insurance claims is fraudulent. In recent years, the use of Assignment of Benefits forms have become vehicles for fraud causing insurance premiums to go up for all policyholders. Click here to view and download the AOB newsletter.
The losses from fraudulent insurance claims cost policyholders an estimated $400 per year in higher premiums. In Florida (2011), The Division of Insurance Fraud made 1,225 insurance fraud arrests. Many of these arrests were made with the assistance of company Special Investigations Unit.
