** BEWARE of RIP OFF! ** Many of the names listed above appear on my "insurance card". Others were revealed, I believe, mistakenly.

Based on my experience with this company, this is a total rip off! These people bold-faced lied to me about what they were selling and what I would be getting.

I was told I was purchasing a PPO, getting 80/20 Major Medical, $20 co-pays for doctor visits, well-woman exams, mammograms. Yeah, right.

This is not a PPO. Major medical? There is no 80/20. According to one of their reps, if I had to go into the hospital, this "insurance" company would pay $50 per day, not the 80/20 "insurance" coverage they promised. $50 per day doesn't pay for aspirin in the hospital!

Well-woman or mammogram was supposed to be a $20 co-pay. Instead, while I was at the doctor's office waiting for service, this company denied coverage for these services, saying it fell under "preventative care" - something they didn't cover.

On the card, it clearly states "Doctor's Office Visit $20 copay per visit". In reality, they denied coverage because "charge incurred after policy terminates not cov'd". Of course, this happened after 5 months of premiums were automatically withdrawn from my checking account, one premium just withdrawn from my account days before coverage was denied!
**Caution**
According to my credit union, they used multiple IDs to withdraw premiums from my account. This made it possible for them to continue to withdraw premiums after I cancelled the policy AND put a "stop payment" on my account with this company. Unfortunately, I found this out the hard way.

How did I find all of this out? It was only after going to the doctor, I found out how absolutely dishonest these people had been with me.

Why am I posting this online? Like so many other Americans, I've been laid off and find myself in a position I've never been before. No paycheck/unemployment, no cobra, and to top it off, a company like this preying on those who can least afford to be preyed upon. Bottom line, I may have been ripped off for over $1,500!, but I refuse to help them rip off anyone else.

** BEWARE **

Good post. Many years ago I had an "insurance" agent try to sell me a similar product for my employees (back when I owned a business). After investigating the company and reading all the fine print, it didn't really pay for anything at all. So sorry you wasted your money!

Imagine this. After purchasing Health Essential Healthcare and thinking that you're covered with this PPO plan you end up in the hospital. They tell you that you have a major medical condition and it's going to cost big bucks. You have peace of mind thinking that the insurance will cover it. Then you find out they only pay $50 bucks a day. OUCH!! Be thankful you were not put in this position. Good for you for exposing this scam rip off company.

Wished I had read these reviews prior to opening my childrens policies. Readers be very aware that what you are getting is not insurance. Agents from Getinsured.com would not return my calls. This kind of business should not be allowed to operate. Very deceptive.

I felt something stinks when the salesman was real nice at first. Then he was the smelly fish. They lied to me about so many thigs. This is Texas and we do not do fast talking pushy sales. Get a rope.

Update on HEALTH INSURANCE INNOVATION after many, many phone calls to BBB in Texas and the Texas Insurance Board in Austin guess what they are not license to sell in Texas because the Texas Insurance Board never heard of them they told me I had to call Florida so I called 5 different numbers in Florida no luck. I did call the BBB(Better Business Bureau)in Flordia and they do have a ALERT on them which was read to me over the phone I'm going to file a complaint with BBB in Flordia on this company we all need too. The phone number of the BBB in Flordia is 1-727-535-5522 we must stand together to stop this so call insurance company.

Let me tell you what this company has done to me...I bought a short term health insurance policy through HII--three days later I was having difficulty swallowing--went to the doctor. He thought I had an irritation, so prescribed me a GI cocktail. Ten days later, I could not swallow water. I had 2 emg scopes at hospital, and was told that I had Barretts esophagus..sent home but condition worsened. I was admitted into hospital and was scoped again. Pathology report came back positive for esophageal cancer!!! After ambulance ride for surgery-chemo port-j-tube I began intensive chemotherapy and radiation. I had an Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy on 6-25-12 to remove cancerous tumor. Insurance company did not pay claims for 4 months, then finally paid claims. In October thay said I had a pre-existing condition and wanted all their claim money back. Well, because of their practice of post-claim underwriting I am on the hook for over $300,000.00 because 1 doctor said I had symptoms..symptoms of what?? I had twenty other doctors that concurred with everyone else. The 1 doctor made an error, but here I am with EC and no money to pay. I now have no insurance because of this company, therefore I probably am dying. They acted in bad faith. One of their claims personnel told me I was covered--it depended when I was diagnosed. So there you go. Pretty sad isn't it?? They will not even refund the premiums I paid--scam and bad faith!!!

Thank you all for all of your comments. I just got off the telephone with an agent from Hii quote insurance. I listened to what she had to say and told her I do not buy things over the internet with a one phone call engagement. She tried really hard to get me to commit. I told her I was going to research her company and get back with her. When she got a little more pushy I ended the call. This site really enlightened me and made me take a good look at why I am even looking on line for something so important, I will now find a local agency to whom I can speak within person. They are still out there and reputable. I fell so bad for all of those who were ripped off by these terrible people. I wish you all the best and I will go on Facebook now and start spreading the word for you. God Bless.

I called the hii today after seeing it on a web site, the agent and I went over thing a lot. He gave me a pakage tha I should have known souned to good to be true. He pushed for my CC number, I told him that my payment will not be able to go through until Monday, he seemed upset then Ilooked up this web site hii.quote and saw reviews. I called th guy back and addressed concerns, he was raising his voice and talking bad about the BBB and said I had to be on the wrong web because there would no way be reviews, He was not a nice person when questioned. What do I do??
