Insurer with NY's 'worst' record of complaints gets $340M Obamacare loan

The Friends of O become multi-millionaires
A health insurance company headed by an old friend from when President Obama was an Illinois state senator got a $340 million federal loan to establish Obamacare co-ops in New York, New Jersey and Oregon despite having a chronic record of consumer and regulatory complaints.

The New York-based Freelancers Insurance Company has been rated the "worst" insurer for two straight years by state regulators, and data compiled by a national insurance association show an extremely high rate of consumer complaints.

The firm was founded in 2008 by Sara Horowitz, who worked with Obama while he was in the Illinois state senate to launch Demos, a left-wing, New York think tank funded in part by George Soros.

Before May 13, 2011, the Demos website described Horowitz and Obama as members of the founding group in 1999 that became "the core of Demos' staff and Board of Trustees."



How bad is Freelancers Insurance Company?

In 2011, the New York State Insurance Department ranked FIC last among commercial insurers with the most complaints and 49th of 50 among all the state's insurance providers, including health maintenance organizations.

In 2012, the Empire State insurance regulator again ranked Freelancers "worst" in complaints and 51st among 54 rated New York-based insurers.

The department ruled that "the health insurer did not comply with statutory or contractual obligations" in half the cases filed against Horowitz's company by consumers.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners, which represents 50 state insurance commissioners, reported FIC's complaint rate to be more than seven times the national average in the two most recent years for which data is available.
Can you say "culture of corruption"?  It's amazing how many Obama cronies get multi-million dollar loans and grant for things like "clean energy" facilites that go bankrupt leaving the cronies wealthy and the taxpayers poorer.
