Florida company sued over sales of skimpy health plans
from New York Times
One Ohio resident paid $240 a month for health insurance that she later learned didn't cover her knee replacement. Saddled with $48,000 in medical bills, she decided not to get the other knee replaced. "It's been devastating to me," said Elizabeth Belin, who lives in Columbus. The bills totaled more than her annual salary. A Kansas resident paid premiums on a policy for two years, then found out his insurance would not cover surgery for a newly diagnosed cancer. The two policyholders have filed a lawsuit in federal court against Health Insurance Innovations, based in Tampa, FL, accusing the company of misleading them about the kind of policy they were buying.
