Insurers warn brokers
Sacramento Business Journal, August 25, 2008
Health plans have warned the brokers who sell their products to stop efforts to save employers money by combining two different types of insurance products. Those that do could be kicked out of the sales network. The health plans are also asking employers to sign statements saying they will not combine some high-deductible plans with certain types of self-insurance. If they combine such plans or refuse to sign, they could lose coverage.
