CA Ins Code Section 1879.2


Any insurer that prints, reproduces, or furnishes a form to any person upon which that person gives notice to the insurer of a claim under any contract of insurance or makes a claim against the insurer for any loss, damage, liability, or other covered event shall cause to be printed or displayed, in comparative prominence compared to other contents, the following statement: “Any person who knowingly presents a false or fraudulent claim for the payment of a loss is guilty of a crime and may be subject to fines and confinement in state prison.” The statement shall be preceded by the words: “For your protection California law requires the following to appear on this form” or other explanatory words of similar meaning.


Any insurer that has produced or caused to be printed forms containing the statement required by subdivision (a), as originally added by Chapter 1008 of the Statutes of 1994, may continue to use those forms until December 31, 1996. This subdivision is intended to prevent any unnecessary waste of resources that might result from insurers’ efforts to comply with conflicting provisions of law.
