What is insurance fraud?
Insurance fraud is a crime in Colorado and surrounding rocky mountain states. A person commits insurance fraud if they intend to defraud an insurance company for payment of a claim by knowingly preparing or presenting false or misleading information.



What we do... train, network, educate

The RMASIU carries out the IASIU mission locally by providing our members and antifraud partners with the training and networking advantages they need to fight insurance fraud. The RMASIU also educates the public about insurance fraud, its negative consequences to society, and how to recognize, prevent and report it.    


The Rocky Mountain Chapter of the International Association of Special Investigation Units (RMASIU) is an organization comprised of company special investigators, law enforcement personnel and support service providers committed to the detection, investigation, prevention & prosecution of insurance fraud.

Our mission is to promote a coordinated effort within the insurance industry to combat insurance fraud as well as develop and promote a greater awareness of the problem of insurance fraud. We accomplish this mission by providing monthly networking opportuities accompanied by training presentations as well as an annual one day seminar in Denver, Colorado for our Chapter members and the Insurance Industry at large. Our training programs are designed to assist our membership, law enforcement and interested members of the community in detecting, deterring and preventing insurance fraud. We also work to facilitate coordination and cooperation with law enforcement and criminal justice agencies in the investigation and prosecution of insurance fraud crimes.

Our membership comprises both Regular and Associate members. Regular members include insurance fraud investigators employed by insurance companies and self-insured corporations engaged in anti-fraud activities in conformance with the goals and objectives of the Association, as well as special agents or supervisory special agents of the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB).

Associate members include: local, state or federal law enforcement involved in the investigation and/or prosecution of insurance fraud crime; investigators wth the State Division of Insurance, and other individuals involved in, or providing special expertise or services for the investigation of insurance fraud.

The RMASIU's parent organization, the International Association of Special Investigation Units (IASIU), was founded in 1984 by a small group of insurance industry fraud investigators.
