FRAUD PREVENTION MISSION STATEMENT
USLI recognizes that fraud exists in the insurance industry. As such, it is the policy and mission of the company to strive to detect and prevent insurance fraud through the employment of an effective and diligent Anti-Fraud Plan. As part of the company’s management process, USLI claim staff will endeavor to thoroughly review each claim with the specific goal of identifying those claims exhibiting fraud related indicators, red flag events and situations or behavior indicative of fraud schemes. Those identified will be directed for specialized handling.
The purpose and goal of our Anti-Fraud Plan is to educate, detect, investigate and deter insurance fraud thereby helping to reducing insurance costs.
FRAUD INVESTIGATION AND TRAINING
The company has a Special Investigations Unit (S.I.U.) that is responsible for the review and disposition of all suspected fraudulent insurance acts. The S.I.U. also provides training to employees and appointed producers in detecting, investigating and referring cases of suspected transactional and claim fraud. If you are interested in assisting USLI in its anti-fraud efforts and would like to receive more information or training on how to detect and handle cases of suspected fraud, please contact one of the members of our S.I.U. listed below.
