A company that sold itself as a health insurance provider is being ordered to stop doing business in Iowa — and dozens of Iowa families are now learning they’re not insured. Scott Kinney, spokesman for the Iowa Insurance Division, says a “cease and desist” order was issued Tuesday against Employers Mutual L-L-C.Kinney says about 200 Iowa families trusted Employers Mutual L-L-C with their health insurance — and now they are not covered. He says Iowans who did business with this Carson City, Nevada-based company need to get on the phone and start making calls to make sure their coverage is legitimate.The company in question is Employers Mutual L-L-C. Kinney stresses it is not to be confused with Employers Mutual Insurance Company, which is based in Des Moines. Kinney says that company, also known as E-M-C, is a legitimate, established insurance provider. For questions, call the Iowa Insurance Division at 877-955-1212. As for the 200 Iowa families, Kinney says it’s still unclear if they’re concentrated in any one part of the state or if they’re spread out. Last week, the federal government froze all of the Nevada L-L-C’s assets.
