STATE ORDERS COMPANY TO STOP SELLING INSURANCE IN PENNSYLVANIA

 STATE ORDERS COMPANY TO STOP SELLING INSURANCE IN PENNSYLVANIA
 HARRISBURG, Pa., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The state Insurance Department has ordered United Healthcare Inc., an Ontario, Calif.-based company, to stop selling insurance in Pennsylvania because it is not licensed by the state.
 The department ordered United Healthcare to comply with Pennsylvania licensing laws if it wants to sell insurance in the state. The company had sold group health insurance policies to small businesses in York, Lebanon, Carlisle, Pottsville and Philadelphia.
 In addition, the department fined United Healthcare and its principals $120,000 and ordered the company to pay all outstanding claims submitted by subscribers.
 The department has notified insurance agents who previously sold United Healthcare products to stop selling those products.
 The department also warned consumers to check with the department before purchasing insurance from companies such as United Healthcare that identify themselves as a Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangements, or MEWAs. Although there are legal MEWAs, consumers should not assume that any entity using that designation is legal.
 Consumers with questions about the license status of insurance companies may call the department's consumer services offices in Pittsburgh, 412-565-5020; Erie, 814-871-4466; Philadelphia, 215-560-2630, or Harrisburg, 717-787-2317.
