TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida has ordered the Association of Independent Managers to stop selling unauthorized health insurance.

The order Tuesday by the Office of Insurance Regulation came too late, though, for up to 1,800 consumers who already purchased the bogus health plans.

Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink said her department is working with regulators to hold agents who sold the policies accountable.

The state has received complaints from 96 consumers involving 49 agents.

Regulators said the company has marketed unauthorized policies under several names including AIM Health Plans, AIM Health

Solutions, AIM Guaranteed Health Insurance, CEO Club Benefits, Chief Executive Officers Club and CEO Health Select.
