State insurance officials announced 11 individuals have been charged in scheme to defraud a Georgia-based insurance company.

According to Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John King, warrants were issued after the 11 individuals tried to allegedly defraud American Family Life Assurance Company (Aflac) out of $120,000.

The insurance commissioner said healthcare employees filed 79 fraudulent insurance claims on their accident and hospital polices for services that were never rendered.

“These 11 individuals were part of a coordinated effort to defraud a prominent Georgia-based company,” said Commissioner King. “These types of fraudulent actions lead to increased premiums for all Georgians. I’m proud of my Criminal Investigations Division for their meticulous work throughout this ongoing investigation to bring these suspects to justice.”

Commissioner King’s Criminal Investigations Division worked with the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office on the investigation.
