Complaint Review: Time Insurance Company and Assurant Health
Time Insurance Company and Assurant Health501 West Michigan Milwaulkee, Wisconsin United States of America
Time Insurance Company and Assurant Health Sold me one health policy but issued a junk insurance policy in its place! Milwaulkee, Wisconsin
My complaint alleges violations of California's Unfair Competition Law (UCL) and False Advertising Law. It also seeks damages for fraud.
I believe the defendants are essentially engaged in a "bait and switch" scheme where they advertise, market and offer broad or comprehensive health insurance (described in their marketing brochure as the "MaxPlan") Instead, they issue and deliver another lesser plan, the "SaveRight" Plan.
The SaveRight plan is essentially worthless in the context of any substantial or catastrophic illness, disease or injury because it includes a maximum outpatient services benefit of $15,000 per calendar year.
I think my case perfectly illustrates this rip off. In June 2009 I thought I was buying the MaxPlan. A year later, in June of 2010 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In September I was shocked to learn, for the first time and while in the middle of my chenotherapy treatments, that Time Insurance Company refused to pay for any outpatient services (chemotherapy, blood and lab work and so forth) after August 1, 2010 because I had exceed my $15K annual cap.
I am interested in finding other similar victims of this scheme. Please help me if you know anyone who was ripped off like me.
