Continental Casualty alleges it need not cover Denton County businessman

By Gene Johnson | Mar 10, 2016

SHERMAN – Continental Casualty is suing a Denton County businessman, seeking not to provide coverage after the federal government alleged he provided kickbacks and bribes under a health and welfare plan.

Continental Casualty Company filed a lawsuit Feb. 17 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Jeffrey Ramsey of Flower Mound and Benefits Consulting Group LLC in a bid to not provide coverage under a professional liability policy.

According to the complaint, Continental issued to Mercer Financial Services a professional liability policy, of which Ramsey was enrolled, for coverage from April 1, 2014 to April 1, 2015.

On Oct. 30, 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor alleged Ramsey overcharged for services provided as well as gave kickbacks and bribes in connection with a health and welfare plan. Ramsey decided to file a claim, seeking insurance coverage for the federal government’s allegations.

Continental Casualty seeks to not have to pay out insurance coverage, alleging the claim does not fall under any policy guidelines stated in the insurance policy issued to Mercer Financial Services. The plaintiff also seeks a jury trial.

It is represented by attorneys Andrew L. Margulis of Ropers, Majeski, Kohn and Bentley in New York, and Eric W. Hynes of the Law Offices of Brian J. Judis in Dallas.
