Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater announced the arrests of attorneys, chiropractors and clinic employees involved in an organized personal injury protection (PIP) fraud scheme.

Atwater said the five arrests were made in Martin, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties, following a year-long undercover investigation by the Florida Department of Financial Services’ Division of Insurance Fraud.

During the investigation, multiple undercover detectives were embedded into clinics that were accepting patients who were illegally solicited, according to officials. The officials allege that one clinic in particular was billing for services that were never rendered and on several occasions, patients were also found being coached to claim they were injured when they were not.
