Companies Are Selling Fake Health Insurance
Health Insurance has become a big issue for many Americans over the past few years. As the costs of health care continue to rise, families without health insurance are looking for ways to afford those costs. That kind of stress makes them vulnerable to companies that take their money without providing needed services.

In November of 2018, the Federal Trade Commission requested that a federal judge shut down a Florida-based operation that was accused of collecting more than $100 million by, “preying on Americans in search of health insurance, selling these consumers worthless plans that left tens of thousands of people uninsured.”
According to the FTC’s complaint, the defendants behind Simple Health lured consumers through a network of deceptive lead generation websites that claimed to provide information about comprehensive health insurance. On the sites, the defendants falsely held themselves out as experts on and providers of government-sponsored health insurance policies, such as those offered under Medicare and the Affordable Care Act. In many cases, the sites also misleadingly featured the logos of the AARP or well-known insurance carriers, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, when in fact the defendants were not affiliated with such entities.
Another tactic we are aware of are outbound spam calls to people telling them they have Aetna, Cigna, United, or other well known health plans, but, upon further investigation, these plans ARE NOT WHAT YOU THINK!
