NU Online News Service, July 30, 1:47 p.m. – A state appeals court in Tallahassee, Fla., has given American Medical Security Group Inc., Green Bay, Wis., permission to continue to sell major medical insurance in Florida while the company battles the Florida Department of Insurance.
The Florida department issued an order July 24 that would have suspended American Medical’s license to operate in the state for one year.
The Florida 1st District Court of Appeal has responded by staying the order. The stay will be effective until the court rules on American Medical’s request to overturn the Florida department’s order.
The court has not yet set a date for a hearing on the appeal, American Medical says.
American Medical sells major medical insurance to individuals and small groups.
