Insurance Commission Whistleblower Programs

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 their laws – 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.
