Why am I not surprised by this:
“Ohio’s sixth-largest school district says it was a victim of fraud resulting from secret commissions that its health-insurance company paid to a broker in return for delivering the district’s business.”
As Yogi Berra once observed, “it’s déjà vu all over again.” Two weeks ago, it was United HealthCare and a Columbus area broker named Grady.
Today, it’s UHC and a Columbus area broker named Fritz Neuhart; once again, a rather ordinary web-site and a nondescript agency name. Nothing to indicate that Mr Neuhart had (allegedly) pocketed a cool $1 million in fees and commissions. Kinda makes a piker out of poor Mr Grady.
For now, the Department of Insurance is mum on this, although they’re "aware of the situation."
So far, that’s two school districts caught up in similar webs. I wonder how many other superintendents are even now rifling through their insurance files, trying to determine if they, too, have been stung.
