From 2008 to 2011, the number of questionable claims suspected of being part of an organized group or ring activity increased by 47 percent, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau’s “Data Analytics Forecast Report.” However, that number of questionable claims with the OGA referral reason decreased markedly in 2011 and continued to fall in in the first half of 2012.

From 2008 through June 2012, 13,014 questionable claims were identified with the organized group/ring activity (OGA) reason in ISO ClaimSearch, and NICB forecasts that rate of increase is likely to continue from 2011 to 2012, despite the decrease noted above.
