MIAMI, May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent federal court filing, a court-appointed Receiver said he "plans to further investigate the role of Health Insurance Innovations, Inc. ("HII") in what he termed "a classic bait-and-switch scam" perpetrated by Simple Health Plans, LLC ("Simple Health").
According to the Receiver, Simple Health was "a classic bait-and-switch scam" in which unwitting consumers were led to believe they were purchasing an Obamacare-compliant PPO policy, but were really being sold limited benefit plans that did not comply with the Affordable Care Act.
Simple Health was one of the largest brokers for HII, a publicly traded distributor of health insurance and supplemental plans. In addition to selling plans through Simple Health, HII acted as Simple Health's third-party administrator and provided customer service for Simple Health.
The Federal Trade Commission recently warned that thousands of unaware victims may continue to be charged by HII for plans purchased through Simple Health.
The law firm of Levine Kellogg Lehman Schneider + Grossman LLP ("LKLSG") in Miami is investigating potential legal action designed to help victims of the Simple Health scam. If you bought a limited benefit insurance plan through Simple Health, please contact attorney Jason Kellogg at the information above or through www.simplehealthlawsuit.com.

Dorfman, who is accused of spending millions of dollars toward an extravagant lifestyle. The FTC obtained an injunction against Simple Health, which it alleges engaged in a $150 million scheme.
