§ 119.24. Anti-fraud plan annual reports.

 (a)  Section 1204 of the act (77 P. S. §  1040.4) requires insurers to report annually to the Department a summary of actions taken under their anti-fraud plans to prevent and combat fraud. Annual reports under this section should cover anti-fraud activities for each calendar year. The first annual report should cover the period August 31, 1993, through December 31, 1994, and shall be filed with the Department by March 31, 1995. Thereafter, reports are to be filed by March 31 of each year and cover the previous calendar year’s anti-fraud activities. The annual report should provide detailed information on the following:

   (1)  Specific actions taken by the insurer during the year to prevent and combat insurance fraud. The actions should be thoroughly described in the annual report and should contain statistical information relating to the number of cases of detected fraud, including the status of disposition of those cases, the number of personnel and other resources committed to detecting and combating fraud, the total dollar cost of fraud and the savings attributed to detected fraud or otherwise recovered by the insurer.

   (2)  Measures implemented throughout the year to provide for the integrity and security of fraud related data and information collected and maintained. The measures apply to data collected and maintained in a manual or automated environment.

   (3)  Originating sources of the information on the fraudulent activity—for example, an agent, adjuster, employe, policyholder or citizen.

 (b)  The annual reports should be submitted to the Department in a standard report format, including a table of contents, summary, subdivisions of information in the report, including tables and graphs necessary to clearly illustrate the statistical information. Additionally, insurers should identify the person responsible for preparing and filing the annual report. The Department may require that the insurer clarify items addressed in the report or provide additional information relative to the annual report.

 (c)  Workers’ compensation insurers which also write motor vehicle insurance may file a single annual report for both motor vehicle and workers’ compensation insurance anti-fraud activities. The combined report shall segregate the information reported for both motor vehicle and workers’ compensation lines of business. The reports should be sent to the attention of the Insurance Department, Dennis C. Shoop, Director, Bureau of Enforcement, 1321 Strawberry Square, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 17120.
