How To Contact Insurance Fraud Bureau
Here are instructions for how to contact the insurance fraud bureau. Insurance fraud is a crime that affects everyone. It is estimated that insurance fraud costs the industry over $40 billion per year. This translates to an average increase in insurance premiums of $400 to $700 dollars for the average US family per year. Millions of dollars are spent by insurance companies and the US government to prevent and stop fraud. If you know of an instance where insurance fraud is being committed and want to know how to contact an insurance fraud bureau, here are some ways to contact them.
- Insurance companies. If you know of a case of insurance fraud you can’t contact the insurance company being frauded directly. Most insurance companies have methods of contact or fraud hotlines for contact in these circumstances. Otherwise contact an agent or the company headquarters to report insurance fraud.
- National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). This non-profit organization works with law enforcement and insurance companies to detect and identify insurance fraud. They also assist law enforcement with prosecuting insurance fraud crimes. The NICB can be contacted by phone at (800) 835-6422 or at their website
- State Fraud Bureaus. Another means of reporting insurance fraud is to contact a state fraud bureau if your state has one. The “Coalition Against Insurance Fraud” has a listing of state fraud bureaus at their website. Their main website is also a great source for information about insurance fraud, types, reporting and statistics.
- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI can be contacted to report insurance fraud. If you know of an instance of insurance fraud being committed you can contact the nearest field office for the FBI. Their website has a list of local field offices that you can contact directly.
All of these resources are great for contacting the appropriate agencies when reporting insurance fraud.
