What are the Penalties For Insurance Fraud in New Jersey?
Insurance fraud is a serious crime, carrying a sentence as lengthy as 10 years in prison. Additional penalties can also include fines, restitution, and probation. New Jersey is serious about insurance fraud prosecution and established the Office of Insurance Fraud Prosecutor to oversee insurance fraud prevention and prosecution throughout New Jersey. This office operates a 24-hour insurance fraud tip line and offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to an insurance fraud arrest.
Is Insurance Fraud a Federal Crime?
Most insurance fraud cases are generally handled at the state level. As mentioned above, the OIFP works with state and federal law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute insurance fraud cases. However, insurance fraud can be prosecuted as a federal offense in New Jersey if the crime involves federal programs, agencies, or crosses state lines. An example of this can include if the insurance fraud scheme applies to a federally-funded insurance program such as Medicare or Medicaid, or if it involves a federal agency such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), it could be prosecuted at the federal level. If you are facing federal charges for insurance fraud in New Jersey, it is necessary to seek the legal guidance of a New Jersey federal criminal defense lawyer who can help you navigate the complex legal system and work towards the best possible outcome for your case.
