Our securities fraud attorneys are investigating potential claims on behalf of investors of Health Insurance Innovations (NASDAQ: HIIQ) involving possible securities law violations. A class action lawsuit was filed on September 11, 2017 on behalf of investors who purchased shares of HIIQ between August 2, 2017 and September 11, 2017.
Share Price Falls 21.9%
On September 11, 2017, Seeking Alpha published an article charging that Health Insurance Innovations was rejected for a key insurance license in Florida because a regulator uncovered undisclosed legal actions against HIIQ insiders. The article also alleged that HIIQ privately warned the Florida regulator of a potentially disastrous “domino effect” spreading to other states, which could cause additional licensure losses. Following this news, shares of HIIQ fell $6.55 per share, or 21.9%, to close at $23.35 per share, causing significant harm to HIIQ investors.
The complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
- the Company’s application for a third-party insurance administrator’s license with the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation was denied due in part to material errors and omissions
- the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation’s rejection of the Company’s application for a third-party insurance administrator’s license could result in its losing licenses in the other states
- as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times
