The States of California and Illinois reward whistleblowers who expose frauds on private insurers within the state. Notably, all types of insurance fraud are covered by the law – not just health insurance fraud. These insurance commission laws are modeled on the False Claims Act, and require whistleblowers to file sealed lawsuits on behalf of those States.
If a whistleblower’s lawsuit is successful, the whistleblower is entitled to a monetary reward of between 30% and 50% of the government’s recovery.
The M&S Insurance Commission team is led by a former state insurance commissioner. We understand insurance fraud like few others. For more information about our experienced team of whistleblower lawyers, please contact us.
