Two weeks ago, Burke Harvey & Frankowski, LLC wrote about the settlement that LINA had entered into with five states relating to its improper claims handling practices on Long Term Disability policies. Today, the Attorney General of Massachusetts announced that the Commonwealth had fined LINA $5 million dollars because it failed to uphold provisions of a settlement agreement it had entered into with that state. Specifically, the state had accused LINA of using deceptive practices to sell supplemental health insurance to veterans and other Massachusetts residents.
