A two-year PIP fraud (personal injury protection) investigation involving Integrated Healing Clinic in Tampa, Fla., has concluded with the arrests of 7 residents, according to a statement by the Florida Department of Financial Services’ Division of Insurance Fraud. The Division’s investigation discovered that clinic staff had filed several patient claims with multiple insurance carriers for prices that far exceeded actual treatment costs and, in some cases, for treatments that never took place.

“These individuals orchestrated a complex operation to defraud insurance companies and, ultimately, all Floridians,” said Deputy CFO Jay Etheridge. “I’m proud of the results of this collaborative investigation and hope this serves as a deterrent for anyone considering or currently engaged in similar criminal acts in our state.”
