When someone pads a homeowner’s claim, upcodes a patient’s bill, or files a false Workers' Compensation claim, it costs everyone. Insurance fraud ranks second behind tax evasion as the most prevalent white-collar crime in the United States – costing billions in lost revenue and increasing premiums every year.
