New Course: Introduction to Insurance Fraud
As long as there has been insurance, fraud and deception have co-existed. There has always been an element of society prone to trying to obtain benefits they are not entitled to. Most would agree there will always be a percentage of insurance claims deemed fraudulent. This means the goal is to discourage fraud. Awareness, knowledge and training are tools that can be used to limit fraud.
Web pages are full of headline-making insurance scams. In the stories that abound are found examples of frauds from every category of insurance. So long as wealth changes hand, they will be those who attempt to wrongfully seize a portion of this.
The objective of ILScorp’s new online course Introduction to Insurance Fraud is to provide skills and training for employees on the topic of insurance fraud. This course provides information on techniques for identifying the common signs of fraud. It also supplies information on the behaviors associated with these types of actions.
