Ontario Government to Introduce Regulatory Amendments to Combat Auto Insurance Fraud

The Ontario Government has announced that it will introduce regulatory amendments aimed at tackling automobile insurance fraud in the Province.

According to their website, measures will be taken as follows:

  • Require insurers to provide claimants all reasons for denying a claim.
  • Give claimants the right to receive a bi-monthly, detailed statement of benefits paid out on their behalf.
  • Increase the role of claimants in fraud prevention (e.g. require them to confirm attendance at health clinic).
  • Make providers subject to sanctions for overcharging insurers for goods and services and banning them from asking consumers to sign blank claim forms.
