A woman claims she was tricked into buying a skimpy health insurance plan that left her in massive debt after slipping on the sidewalk, breaking her back and wrist. Trish was left with tens of thousands in hospital bills. She thought she had purchased a PPO plan from the Affordable Care Act, only to realize the insurance broker and website used were made to look like the government exchange site. Insurance advocate and surgeon at Johns Hopkins Dr. Marty Makary weighs in on this practice and warns that when you buy health insurance with a broker you are using someone who is often an intermediary who gets paid on the backend.
