How to make smart investments in your home, business and life.
Insurers need to learn more about their customers to protect them, a federal judge has ruled.
The order comes after the government sued several insurers, including Aetna, UnitedHealth Group, Humana, United Healthcare, and Aetamp Corp.
Insurers will be required to disclose more information to consumers about their coverage and policies.
The orders will allow insurers to better understand their customers and to better provide services and products that consumers want, according to the judge.
Insurance is one of the largest areas of the economy, with millions of people paying for their coverage.
Insurance companies have to pay billions of dollars to cover uninsured people and to help cover their deductibles, co-pays and other out-of-pocket costs.
The lawsuits allege that insurers’ marketing and sales practices were discriminatory against minority groups and consumers.
