The Washington state Office of the Insurance Commissioner said Thursday that Aetna's violations included issuing unapproved insurance policies and failing to file legally required documents. The office says the Connecticut-based company has agreed to pay the fine.
Aetna said in a statement that it sometimes makes mistakes. The company says it self-reported information to Washington state regulators and proposed a corrective action plan more than a year ago. Aetna says it is disappointed by the size of the fine given the company's self-reporting and cooperation.
