Michigan orders payer to cease all operations

The Michigan Insurance and Financial Services Department has ordered Salvasen Health to cease all operations for allegedly selling insurance policies without a state license.

The state claims Salvasen sold more than 2,000 health insurance policies in the state without a license and failed to pay claims on time. The allegations could lead to civil fines and restitution paid to those affected, according to a July 25 news release.

In April, Texas ordered the Houston-based company to end all business operations in the state for selling plans without a license and banned the company from applying for a license for 10 years. Salvasen has marketed health insurance products across the country and sold about 65,000 unauthorized health plans, according to the Texas Department of Insurance.

In March, the payer was banned from Wisconsin after selling health plans that were not ACA-compliant. Minnesota and Nevada have also taken actions against the company.
