FBI agents busted a medical insurance fraud ring that allegedly raked in over $18 million since its 2014 inception.
Of the 27 people arrested in the sting, six were active or retired NYPD officers.
According to an article published in the New York Daily News several nurses and 911 operators were also charged.
The officers involved in the con allegedly provided the medical insurance fraudsters with the personal information of people involved in car accidents. With that information in hand, the insurance scammers would contact the victims of the car wreaks and steer them to clinics that would bill insurance companies in New York and New Jersey for medical treatments they didn't need or receive.
Of the six officers caught up in the sting, only one had been taken into custody.
