Trust Your Own Doctor to Avoid Insurance Fraud Cases in NJ
The majority of health care providers are hardworking, honest professionals who have your best interests at heart.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Some health care providers in New Jersey are teaming up with other professionals to put profits ahead of patients. Using sophisticated business plans, they are circumventing state regulations intended to protect people’s health and control the cost of car insurance.
Some tactics in NJ constitute insurance fraud.
Using police reports to track down people involved in automobile accidents, some individuals are tempting people with big money that rarely materializes, and encouraging excessive, often painful, and unnecessary medical treatments, sometimes charging five to ten times the market rate.
The damage to consumers goes beyond excessive, painful, and unnecessary treatment. Excessive bills after only a few treatments often use up all of the money available from your car insurance policy, and could leave you without coverage you need. Here is what this means to you:
- Treatment, often painful and inconvenient, that you may not need
- Promises of money you may never see
- Depletion or exhaustion of available insurance benefits for the care you may really need
- Significantly higher car insurance premiums
Insurance fraud has increased the average cost of car insurance by over 25% in NJ in only a few years.
