NH Insurance Commissioner John Elias ordered Aliera Healthcare, Inc. and Trinity Healthcare, Inc. to immediately stop selling or renewing illegal health insurance in New Hampshire.
Aliera, an unlicensed insurance company in New Hampshire, has been administering and marketing health coverage on behalf of Trinity Healthshare, who represents itself as a health care sharing ministry. A legal health care sharing ministry is a nonprofit organization in existence since December 31, 1999, whose members share a common set of ethical or religious beliefs and share medical expenses among members.
The Department’s Consumer Services Division received dozens of complaints and concerns from consumers.
“There are legitimate health care sharing ministries that offer coverage for their members, but Aliera and Trinity are not one of them,” said Elias. “Unfortunately, we are seeing entities in the marketplace that are misleading consumers and finding ways to try to avoid insurance regulation. It is important for consumers to be cautious when they purchase health coverage and to reach out to the Department when they have questions or concerns.”
Aliera also markets their products under the company name Ensurian.
