New York charges 4 city employees in ongoing Aflac fraud investigation

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman charged several New York City public employees in the latest round of arrests surrounding the state's investigation of a fraudulent insurance scheme against Aflac Inc.

The defendants allegedly defrauded Aflac of thousands of dollars by forging physician or supervisor signatures while filing false insurance claims with the company, according to the indictments.

Defendants arraigned May 26 in Bronx Supreme Court included two emergency medical technicians with the Fire Department of New York who were charged with insurance fraud and grand larceny. Another FDNY employee and a traffic enforcement agent with the New York Police Department are also facing fraud charges in the case. All together, the defendants are being accused of stealing more than $100,000 from Aflac.

The charges come nearly six months after 13 New York City public employees in Queens and Brooklyn were indicted in connection with a supplemental insurance scheme, in which the defendants allegedly stole over half a million dollars from Aflac. In that case, the group of city employees allegedly forged the signatures of their doctors or supervisors while enrolling in disability insurance through Aflac.

Schneiderman said fraud of this kind has cost insurance companies throughout the state hundreds of thousands of dollars in unnecessary payouts.

"New York consumers should not have to pay higher insurance rates because of the acts of dishonest individuals," he said in a press release.

In total, six defendants have pleaded guilty to insurance fraud charges in the investigation, according to Schneiderman's office.
