Contact your state lawmakers and let them know that you are tired of paying for insurance fraud and support a measure to provide resources to local law enforcement and prosecutors to reduce insurance fraud.
Let your community know that you support the Insurance Fraud Authority proposal. Write a letter to your local newspaper editor expressing your support for fighting back against this crime. Letters to the editor should be between 50 and 100 words and should include your name, phone number, and city or county of residence.
Here are some points of interest to share with legislators:
Property/casualty insurance fraud nationally totals an estimated $30 billion, or about 10 percent of claims.
I support a unified fraud fighting effort which would bring together the insurance industry, law enforcement and prosecutors to combat this crime in Michigan.
Michigan’s no-fault benefits have led to increasing fraudulent claims. It is estimated that questionable claims in Michigan rose more than 122 percent since 2009.
Everyone pays the price for insurance fraud. Tackling the problem of insurance fraud will benefit all policyholders.
