Health insurance provider loses millions of crowns to con artist

According to a police report, a 32-year-old male has caused damages of about two million crowns to his health insurance company by faking illness for six years. Between 2002 and 2008, the man was hospitalized for short periods of time or sought out-patient treatment without actually being sick. By doing so, the man received free meals, accommodation and prescriptions for drugs that he did not need. Police have so far registered a total of 349 offenses by the perpetrator.
