Insurance fraud frequency of investigations

How often do state insurance commissioners pursue or look into fraud committed by the companies that clean up, inventory or rebuild after a fire? I feel it is overlooked and us the insured are the ones suffering. Not only directly as a claimant and also others through higher premiums. I feel this is a huge issue and widely accepted as an industry standard.

Hi Budaful,

We don’t have information about how often state insurance commissioners pursue fraud. However, it is standard for state departments of insurance to have fraud departments and to investigate fraud. If you suspect that there is fraud regarding how your insurance claim is being handled, you can contact your state department of insurance and file a complaint.
