FTC Wins Judgment Against Simple Health Plans for Fraudulent Practices

Court decision bars company and CEO from healthcare marketing, orders restitution to consumers.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has secured a $195 million judgment against Simple Health Plans LLC and its CEO for deceiving consumers into purchasing fraudulent healthcare plans that failed to provide promised coverage. Following the FTC’s motion for summary judgment, the Federal District Court in the Southern District of Florida imposed the monetary penalty and also prohibited Simple Health, five associated entities, and the CEO from engaging in telemarketing or marketing, selling, or promoting any healthcare products.

“Simple Health preyed on consumers by selling them bogus health care insurance that cost them thousands of dollars for ‘benefits’ that in fact left consumers unprotected,” said FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection Director Samuel Levine. “We are pleased the court recognized this blatant bait and switch and ordered the company and its CEO to turn over the money they bilked from consumers.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Director Levine as he heads the Bureau of Consumer Protection.
  • For Chair Lina Khan and members of the FTC as they review and assess the business practices of American companies.
