|As we see the costs of health insurance and health care costs rise each and everyone of us will have been faced with an annual increase in health insurance premiums. It is only natural that people will look for a lower cost alternative and in doing so some are finding themselves the victims of fake health insurance plans.|
Fake health insurance plans look like genuine authorized health insurance plans they are set up with the intention to take your money and not to pay benefits or abide by any state insurance laws. People who buy into a fake health insurance plan can often find themselves with little recourse to justice and are often left with large debts in the event of a claim against the health insurance policy.
There is some confusion surrounding who has the regulatory authority to investigate and prosecute bogus health insurance plans, is it the Department of Labor or state Departments of Insurance. Licensed agents are mainly responsible for selling bogus health insurance plans and can be held liable for selling unlicensed and fraudulent products.
It is important for to licensed agents verify the legitimacy of any product they intend to offer for sale. So it goes without saying that all licensed insurance producers and consumers should verify the legitimacy of any product before putting any money down. Everyone is at risk of being a victim of a fake health insurance plan including individuals, families and employers
