Will You Be Charged with Insurance Fraud in PA?

Insurance fraud covers a broad array of offenses related to defrauding an insurer, agency, or person. Examples include a healthcare provider (doctor or otherwise) who is charged with filing false insurance claims in order to collect payment or a person who misinforms their auto insurance or home insurance company about an incident in order to collect the insurance money.

Penalties for insurance fraud in Pennsylvania are highly dependent on the amount of money that was allegedly stolen. Typically a person convicted of insurance fraud receives a third-degree felony, punishable by up to seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

But not everyone who is charged with insurance fraud has committed insurance fraud. And in many circumstances, the investigations were improperly handled and can be contested in court.

The best thing to do if you have been arrested for insurance fraud in Pennsylvania or suspect that you may be arrested soon, is to call an experienced Fraud Attorney right away. Consultations are always free.

What Counts as Insurance Fraud?

Insurance fraud happens when one is suspected of filing false claims, filing misleading claims, or is involved in assisting in fraudulent filings by giving false statements in order to gain monetarily or attain something of value. Insurance fraud can take place within the healthcare, auto insurance, home liability, life insurance, or fire insurance industries.

Insurance fraud also includes attempting to use another person’s insurance, which would include health, home or auto liability insurance. Forgery charges may also apply.

Insurance fraud is suspected when an individual provides false information to an insurer, in the objective to attain something of value that one otherwise would not have received had the truth been revealed.

In Pennsylvania you could be charged with insurance fraud when you:

  • Intended to collect money or something of value by knowingly providing an insurer with false or misleading statements
  • Use someone else’s identification to make a false insurance claim
  • Conspired with someone else to present misleading or false claims to an insurance company. This includes hiring a person to mislead or defraud an insurance company
  • Provided an insurer with false documents or made false statements in order to have a reduction in insurance rates or actions

Many charges of insurance fraud can begin from a simple mistake. Legal defenses to insurance fraud charges can include a lack of knowledge or intent to defraud, duress, entrapment, or insanity.

However, even if you are one of those erroneously charged with insurance fraud, you could some fairly serious consequences. Such convictions are classified among the most serious of crimes.
