Richard Dietz, a former claims supervisor with Farmer’s Insurance Group, has taken to the airwaves to confess the sins of his former employer, co-workers and himself. His video is being broadcast in the state of Washington in support of a consumer protection referendum which would provide financial penalties for insurers that wrongly delay or deny claims.
In the 30-second video, Dietz states:
"I used to be an Insurance Claims Supervisor. When I started out, it was human beings making decisions. Now insurance companies use computer programs to automatically cut 20 percent from what they know they owe on a claim.
I was forced to use it. You even got bonuses for denying claims.
In Washington state, it’s not illegal for insurance companies to delay or deny legitimate claims. They want you to give up. And they’re getting away with it."
