“Investigation by department or Division of Insurance Fraud; compliance; immunity; confidential information; reports to division; division investigator’s power of arrest under Unfair Insurance Trade Practices Act”

A person commits a fraudulent insurance act if he presents a false or fraudulent claim for payment to a health insurer. The Department of Financial Services or its Division of Insurance Fraud is authorized to investigate insurance fraud and collect evidence. A person who provides information to the department or the Division of Insurance Fraud is not liable to civil liability if he furnishes information in good faith and is not involved in the fraud. The information and records maintained for an insurance fraud investigation are confidential and may not be disclosed to the public unless the investigation is completed or is closed.
