CFO Jimmy Patronis Announces Arrest of Former Jacksonville Jaguar in $78,000 Insurance Fraud Scheme
 
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced today the arrest of former NFL player and assistant coach Marlon Tarron McCree for insurance fraud totaling nearly $78,000. McCree was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars and played for several teams during his nine-year NFL career. He served as an assistant defensive backs coach for the Jaguars in 2012.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Insurance fraud is not a victimless crime and costs honest Floridians millions of dollars every year. Just last year, our dedicated fraud detectives arrested nearly 1,000 individuals and recovered nearly $80 million in insurance fraud related restitution. My office will remain committed to bringing these criminals to justice and protecting your money."
 
In April 2018, a referral was submitted by Cigna Insurance to CFO Patronis’ Bureau of Insurance Fraud indicating McCree submitted fraudulent doctor's certificates and letters to the Gene Upshaw Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) for the purpose of defrauding the fund. Cigna Insurance reported a total of $77,950.28 worth of claim submissions being made by McCree to his HRA account and a total of $31,579.52 had been paid by Cigna prior to the fraudulent activity being discovered. The investigation revealed McCree created fraudulent invoices listing All Smiles Dental in Jacksonville, Florida. According to records from All Smiles Dental, McCree was not, nor had ever been, a patient of the dental practice.
 
If convicted on all charges, McCree faces up to 30 years in prison and a $30,000 fine. To report suspected insurance fraud, call 1-800-378-0445 or www.myfloridacfo.com/division/difs. People reporting fraud can remain anonymous.
