A regulator group that includes 41 states and the District of Columbia has agreed to a $5 million short-term medical insurance settlement with HCC Life Insurance Company and an HCC Life medical insurance affiliate.

HCC Life, a Houston-based company that’s now part of the Tokio Marine Group, stopped selling short-term medical insurance in June. The company has denied any wrongdoing or any activities that violate state insurance laws or regulations.
