Kentucky Warns Against Fake Health Insurance

Bluegrass State regulators are asking agents and consumers to call if they see flyers advertising what may be non-existent medical coverage.

The Kentucky Office of Insurance says it is investigating reports that an unidentified company is selling health insurance in Kentucky without proper authorization.

A flyer faxed to Kentucky consumers is advertising coverage from an unnamed company for monthly premiums ranging from $199 for single coverage to $359 for families, officials say.

Officials note that they learned of the flyers from an insurance agent in northern Kentucky.

When a Kentucky investigator called the telephone number given in the flyer, the person who answered the telephone gave conflicting information, and none of the company names given were for companies licensed to sell health insurance in Kentucky, officials say.

Agents and consumers who see the flyer or similar flyers should call the Kentucky Office of Insurance at (800) 595-6053 and ask for Mark Boggs in Consumer Protection and Education.
