NBC Health Insurance / Defraud the consumers! Scam!

1 United States Review updated:

Dear ComplaintsBoard.com,

I am so upset, and discussed with the internet process of companies that defraud the consumers, such as myself.

I have been paying for this insurance plan for months, with the primus that I would be discounted for hospital stay/bills/charges. When I had to be hospitalized, low and behold the hospital did not honor this plan so I am stuck with paying this supper large hospital bill, with no means to pay it.

I have been unable to reach anyone on the phone, at NBC Health.com, after many calls. I am trying to get information on line concerning them, and still no help......

Others beware, of the deal that sounds too good to be true, well it isn't true at all.

Respectfully,

C.B L

    I tried to cancel this insurance with NBC Health and was told I must do it ove the internet. When I tried to enter their site all Icould do is leave a message to contact me . I have not heard from them in 2 months.

    This company took money from us even before the plan was supposed to start.

    We also cancelled the same day because we couldn't even get an outlined plan in writing. (got answer machine of this crook Israel was his name.)

    Guess what? No call back.

    As far as I am concerned, they stole our money and we are in the process of working with our bank to get our money back.
    Beware, these people should be put out of business.

    I have not been able to get them to find me a doctor told them I want my money back and they say it is non refudable. I am a Diabetic and I just moved to Colorado and I can not find a doctor that is in their network, I really feel like I have been ripped off!!! and I am going to have to go threw my bank as well to get my money back.

    They told me it was an 80/20 deal it is not, the prescription plan is terrible, gave Danny a list of my medication told they would be covered under the different tiers of the plan 1, 2, or3 which would cap perscriptions @ 50.00, but my medications were on tier 4 the tier that gives you the up to 10-30% off of over $880.00 per month, I was told that all my medication fell within the first 3 tiers, Cannot find any of my Drs. in their network.

    My fiance and I have serious health issues.We are both in our early thirties.I called this company and I recieved some kind of manuscript.The prescription program was a really big joke.I got some flimsy little leaflet of the prescriptions that they cover.We are not in a position to change our medications.I didn't even get a booklet with the names of doctors that were in our area.These people need to stop what they are doing.I was given 30 days which i had to try out the plan.I immediately canceled.I sent a letter and I called.But I have not heard about my supposed refund.We all need to band together to get our money back and to help other people from being Frauded like we were.
    I don't know about anyone else but I am pissed.My doctor was right it sounded way to good to be true

    I was shopping online for health insurance coverage and recd a call from a Tom Michaelson who basically offered the 80/20 coverage. In conversation, I advised that I currently have coverage, but shopping for a better deal. Tom immediately told me that they were a non-profit and could only give this "special" limited offer to people who are uninsured. The cost would've been $125.95 per month. Amazing, I thought! I was not able to benefit from this offer, but asked on behalf of my sister who is uninsured. So I asked if this plan was tied to earnings. No, he said. More amazing!! But, at this point, the RED FLAG flew up. Tom wanted information about my sister. Instead, I asked if NBC health had a site online and he provided the name NBC Health and some other name. HERE'S the protection we all need to do before committing to ANYTHING: Do your online research. Go on GOOGLE and search for Scam, ripoff, fraud, complaints, any of those words with the name of the specific organization and if there's a complaint, it will show and you can save yourself trouble, time, and, more importantly MONEY. This is what I do with any decision, particularly involving financial commitments. Needless to say, I will not pass on this information to my sister. FINALLY, the old saying is true: IF IT SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, THEN IT IS A SCAM. (Changed to make it crystal clear). Nothing in this life is free, except the air we breathe and depending on where we live, breathing could also be way too costly! Sorry for all of those who lost your money, but learn from the experience; alert your banks; change credit card, file a report with better business bureaus, blog it, write a comment online to protect others, etc. Thank you all for your reports.

    Hi people, my name is Arthur and I'm a health Insurance agent in Chattanooga, I was trying to find out who this NBC Health was after speaking with a client. After reading all of these complaint on this company it hurts me to know that agents like these are still able to do business. I would like to try and help everyone here because there are companies that will cover you with your health problems. First, you must make sure that any Health plan covering people with pre-existing conditions must be HIPAA Compliant. AIM is a company that is HIPAA Compliant that will cover people with pre-existing conditions, right away if you had insurance for the past 12 months or if it's been less than 63 days since you were insured. If not you will be cover after 12 months for major problems that may need surgery. however you can still go to the Doctor with a co-pay, get your meds with a co-pay. I hope this will HELP everyone, that's what we should do for people. I hope you all will use this information and past it on to someone else who may need this. You can't make money on everything, sometimes you must help your fellow man. That's what the LORD would have you do, so please past it on.

    Yep it's a scam! After you sign up they want you to become a member of some other prescription plan because the one they sold you was bogus!! Total scam!! They should be shut down!

    I worked for nbc health for about 1 day and at first i thought it was a great thing, but as i was being trained in that day i realized that there were so many different names for the company and how many different things were said to certain people. If the person that was looking for health insurance knew to much about insurance companies they would be hung up on, but if they sounded unsure or confused then they'd end thinking it was a good plan when in actuality its not. Heres the catch they cover UP TO 80%. In otherwords they probably won't pay a penny. But the confirmation call is the key, it tells you that customer is responsable for all costs at time of service. I quit the same day, i just can't see myself taking money from people, when they work hard for it. So now i have no job but i can sleep at night knowing i didn't help to scam anyone out of their hard earned money.

    I got a call from a so called Dawn from so called NBC Health saying I was per approved at the rate of $129 a month but i would need to pay an initial start up fee of the same amount.Everything she said sounded great and the price was right too. offering $15K life insurance right away and they offered me 80/20 coverage, just like allof you have said. I told her I was interested and asked for a website or a phone I can callher back at. She replied that they will only be offering this offer in my state (New Jersey) for today and then they are moving on. She said that the information they sent via e-mail was probably in my spam box under NBC Health. Well I didn't find anything and when I tried to call back the number I couldn't get through "Call Failed". So when I jumped on the internet to do some research I found all these complaints. I am so happy that I did not give them my VISA number. I feel terrible for all the victims of this scam. Offering a too good to be true insurance to people that really need it is dispicable!!!
