Grant of TPA License in Florida
On February 14, 2018, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (the “OIR”) executed a consent order granting a Certificate of Authority to conduct business as a third-party insurance administrator in the State of Florida to Health Plan Intermediaries Holdings, LLC (“HPIH”), a subsidiary of Health Insurance Innovations, Inc (the “Company”). The consent order and Certificate of Authority were granted pursuant to an application submitted to the OIR by HPIH in October 2017. In the consent order, which sets forth terms and conditions associated with the license, the OIR assessed a fine of $140,000 as a result of a finding by the OIR (which HPHI did not contest) that HPIH conducted business as an insurance administrator in the State of Florida prior to HPIH’s submission of the application.
Closing of Texas Investigation
On September 15, 2016, the Texas Department of Insurance (“TDI”) notified the Company that the TDI had initiated an enforcement action to investigate alleged violations of advertising rules and licensing violations. TDI requested certain information, records and explanations from the Company. The Company fully cooperated with the investigation. On February 8, 2018, the TDI notified the Company that it had closed the investigation effective February 2, 2018. The TDI verbally indicated that the inquiry has been coded as an “internal inquiry and review that resulted in a finding of ‘no violation’ with no disciplinary action taken.” The matter is considered resolved without penalty or fine from the TDI.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
