Insurer vs. Insurance Fraud: Characteristics and Detection
Despite concern over insurance fraud by customers, the federal Insurance Fraud Prevention Act primarily targets internal fraud, or insurer fraud, in which criminal acts such as embezzlement could trigger an insurer’s insolvency, rather than fraud perpetrated by policyholders such as filing false or inflated claims—insurance fraud. This study investigates whether insurers’ weapons against insurance fraud are also used effectively to combat insurer fraud.
