Aliera, Trinity HealthShare agree to stop marketing plans in Connecticut

The health care sharing ministry and the group that sells its plans will also pay the state $50K

The Aliera Companies and a health care sharing ministry whose plans it promoted, Trinity HealthShare, have agreed to stop marketing in Connecticut, the state Insurance Department announced Tuesday.

The agreement comes 16 months after the department issued a cease and desist order against Trinity and Aliera, saying they illegally advertised their plans as health insurance in the state. Insurance Commissioner Andrew Mais accused the organizations of “misleading consumers and trying to avoid insurance regulation.”

The deal does not affect current ministry members, but it bars the groups from marketing their plans to new customers.

“We are seeing entities in the marketplace misleading consumers and trying to avoid insurance regulation,” Mais said Tuesday. “Consumers need protection from these practices, and the department will provide that. It is important for consumers to be cautious when they purchase health coverage or have questions or concerns. The department is always willing to verify licensing and answer questions from consumers.”
