Recently, Tampa arrested several individuals associated with insurance fraud.  The alleged fraud stems from medical clinics abusing Florida’s “No Fault” insurance laws in order to make a profit by orchestrating staged auto accidents and/or billing for treatment that was not performed on the patient.  With regards to clinics billing for treatment never performed, the insurance industry has cracked down on this type of fraud by interviewing those that received treatment, under oath, to determine what treatment the patient received at the clinic and cross-referencing the testimony with the actual medical bills submitted by the clinic as part of a claim.
