It's not the first time we've heard of this happening when people sign up for healthcare using the marketplace. In this case, Lynn Crollick says Humana dumped her without warning.

Crollick dedicated her career to educating elementary school age children.

Pre-retirement health care coverage came with the job. But at 64 and reliant on pills to combat the pain associated with arthritis, Crollick turned to the marketplace for a healthcare plan.

Crollick says Humana notified her they would be cancelling her policy unless she came up with $700. She looked through her records and says she paid the policy on time over the months. And getting answers proved harder than she imagined.

This customer says Humana canceled her policy, leaving her with no access to her doctors. We emailed Humana and asked if they would review Crollick’s account.

Humana worked quickly to resolve the issue and that 700 dollars owed. Well, it dropped to a $58 monthly premium.

Humana insures about 1.5 million Floridians total. Now if you are having issues with a policy you purchased with Humana through the Marketplace, we've got some help  for you.
