BOISE ID – The Idaho Department of Insurance has revoked the Idaho insurance producer license of Malorie Warner, effective April 3, 2017, for submitting an insurance claim for a medical procedure that did not occur. Warner, a Rexburg resident, admitted to one violation. An administrative penalty of $8,500 was imposed, $7,000 was suspended.
“Submitting false claims is always wrong,” said Department Director Dean Cameron. “Insurance fraud perpetrated by licensed agents is particularly egregious. We hold them to a high standard of professionalism and honesty. Any misconduct on their part not only harms consumers, but also harms the reputation of the industry.”
AFLAC referred information to the Department regarding the potential insurance fraud. Department investigators retrieved bank deposit records and insurance claim forms to aid in verifying the violation.
Warner was an associate with AFLAC from August 2011 to September 2015. The alleged misrepresentations occurred in 2012 and 2014. Warner will not be allowed to reapply for an insurance producer license for five years and until the entire penalty is paid.
