Over the last few years, Mega has jumped into the spotlight of the media. But the media coverage was not promoting the services they offer. Rather, Mega found themselves with a mess of complaints from clients with Mega Health Insurance who found themselves in the difficult situation of being sick with an insurance carrier that would not cover the substantial part of their medical expenses.
The National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE) is an association that specialized in sales of Mega Health and Life Insurance. While the President of NASE claims that the companies are completely separate, he also states that they have dual roles and sell both NASE and Mega policies. The public scrutiny began when NASE was misrepresenting the benefits of the insurance policies to customers during their sales pitch. Both NASE and Mega have involved with lawsuits concerning the proposal and misrepresentation of the sale. Doing a simple search on the internet can lead you to a laundry list of examples of the negative media that has impacted both Mega and NASE.
