The average insured American household pays between $200-$300
in insurance premiums to pay for insurance fraud each year.
Fraudulent claims for medical treatment, worker’s compensation,
homeowners and automobile insurance cost the U.S. economy billions
of dollars annually. Stolen cars alone account for nearly $8
billion each year.*
NW Insurance Council offers an annual $5,000 Insurance Fraud
Award for Northwest citizens who report fraud activity to
law enforcement. We also work with a number of private and
public agencies to stop insurance fraud
such as Puget Sound Special Investigators, Coalition Against
Insurance Fraud, National Insurance Crime Bureau and the Idaho
Department of Insurance Fraud Bureau.
You can help stop fraud. If you know of someone who has committed
insurance fraud, report that person. You may be eligible for
an award of up to $5,000. Call the Insurance Fraud Hotline
at (800) TEL-NICB. You may remain anonymous.
