Sketchy business practice, or insurance S.O.P.?

Sketchy-business-practice-filter: Recently got a letter from our insurance agent (car and home) saying, effectively, "We've reviewed your coverage, and according to some system we have (360 Value), the replacement cost of your house is roughly 30% more than what the current policy covers. If we don't hear from you in 30 days, we're raising your coverage to that $BIGNUM." [more inside]

Why might a person who has a lot of money commit insurance fraud? This is a hypothetical question for a project I'm writing. I cannot imagine a circumstance in which someone who has ample resources might commit insurance fraud -- say, for an insurance claim involving a house break-in, fire, or flood. Can you?

What recourse, if any, do I have in dealing with this equipment charge from my podiatrist?

About six weeks ago I went to a podiatrist for heel pain and was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. I was given instructions for treatment along with a night splint that I've been wearing every night. Today, I received a bill from the podiatrist's office for the splint: Blue Cross has paid $80 of the $280 (!) charge, and the podiatrist's office is now putting me on the hook for the $200 balance. What recourse, if any, do I have in dealing with this charge? [more inside]
