Insurance manager fined $1M for selling illegal plans in Washington

Listen

Washington insurance officials fined Aliera Healthcare, an Atlanta-based healthcare company, for selling illegal health insurance, according to a Nov. 24 press release.

Washington Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler's office issued a $1 million fine against Aliera. The fine comes after a state order in May 2019 instructed Delaware-based healthcare-sharing ministry Trinity HealthShare and Aliera, Trinity's administrator, to stop selling health insurance in Washington. Aliera appealed the order, but it was upheld Nov. 13.

Aliera has 90 days to appeal the fine.
