Benefits Fraud: Real Crime, Real Consequences

Sun Life is the institutional provider for health and dental benefits. As a partner of the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA), Sun Life is supporting a new education campaign to raise awareness on ways to avoid becoming involved in health and dental benefits fraud, and the consequences of involvement.

You commit benefits fraud when you intentionally submit false or misleading information about the health or dental treatments you receive under your benefits plan. Benefits fraud of any kind is still considered fraud. Regardless of why you do it, you’re committing a real crime and must be prepared to face the real consequences; you could lose your benefits, lose your job or go to jail.

The good news? Stopping benefits fraud is simple. Learn how to spot the warning signs so you can refuse it and report it. Visit https://fraudisfraud.ca/ for more information.
