Health Insurer Defrauds Consumers, Says California

     LOS ANGELES (CN) – Private health insurer Health Net defrauds Californians through “a wide range of unlawful, unfair and fraudulent acts and practices,” says the State of California in Superior Court. Health Net’s “coverage” is “largely illusory, ” says the filing, because of the insurer’s relentless retroactive rescission of policies “upon submission of a substantial claim for benefits. … California law refers to this practice as ‘postclaims underwriting’ and flatly prohibits it.”
