Improper Medicare Plan Sales Practices

In May 2007, the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner ordered Humana Insurance Company to take corrective action against the use of improper sales practices to enroll Medicare beneficiaries. According to a report prepared by the Oklahoma Insurance Department, dozens of Humana agents did not have the proper licenses to sell insurance in the state, and some agents enrolled Medicare beneficiaries in plans they did not understand or want. Humana did not contest the allegations and, in August 2007, agreed to pay a $500,000 fine.
