When initially looking into this insurance company, I was led to believe that I was unique and special with regards to being able to sign on with such a good insurance company. My inquiry into this insurance company was July 15, 2008. I was fortunate not to have to make any claims for 3 months. However upon my first visit to my family physician, which I received a bill for $228.00, I was informed that the company was a discount insurance plan only. On Nov. 6 2008 I spoke to Lauren of Consolidated Workers Association at [protected] at 4:40 p.m. and was informed that my billing statement would only be covered at a discount rate. When I inquired with Lauren as to why, she told me that the insurance company would only pay $50.00 toward the bill.This is in direct contrast to the information about Consolidated Workers Association that I received via phone conversation with a male representative named Chris at ext. 111 of the said company. I feel scammed by this company because I entrusted them with delicate personal information and I am not sure I can trust them with all my information and as well as my desire to now terminate the membership.
This is a fraudulent company who does not pay on the medical claims, despite repeated calls to ask about payment of claims.They told me that they were re-staffing each time I called. Even though I paid my portion, they did not pay their part.This is not professional, or ethical, or honest.It is a scam, and since health insurance is too expensive, it just adds to my frustration.Maybe they should be reported to the BBB.Now I have to pay the whole amount of my medical bills, which amount to a large sum of money.
