Elizabeth Belin and Christopher Mitchell, who bought limited benefit indemnity plans from Florida-based Simple Health Plans LLC, claimed in their Friday filing that Health Insurance Innovations and Health Plan Intermediaries Holdings LLC directed, aided and abetted the fraud run through Simple Health, which was shut down last year at the request of the Federal Trade Commission.
