    No sympathy on this one. I am getting tired of people bilking the insurance companies and then we wonder why the rates are so high.
    She got what she deserved.

    Sure she is remorseful. Remorseful she was caught. This piece of trash should be put in jail.

    I am not sure how she did this. Would she not have had to produce doctor’s reports? Why would the insurance company not verified this information with her doctor?

      That was my first thought as well. I didn’t think you could just submit random claims to your medical insurance company and they pay out on them. Besides usually for larger things, such as cancer, the hospital or medical provider would directly bill the insurance company first. At leas that’s how it works here….

      Most fraud is the result of outside information not insurance company discovery. Claims departments are interested in open and close ratios not the particulars of the claim, that’s for siu/fraud unit. And these unit look at statistics and wait for tips. Some electronic submissions are never looked at.
