If the felony convictions were for wobbler offenses (crimes that can be charged either as misdemeanors or felonies) then as part if your expungement you should have, and probably did, ask them to be reduced to misdemeanors. Insurance fraud covers a wide range of offenses. I can't tell you if they could be, or were, reduced to misdemeanors.
