A Tcpa Filed Against Diabetic Supply Company
A Telephone Consumer Protection Act has recently been filed against Simplex Healthcare Inc., a diabetic supply company. The Nashville-based company has been targeting Missouri residents with telemarketing calls, making more than 500 calls a year to some residents. Simplex, the largest manufacturer of diabetic supplies in the U.S., is named along with its CEO, Doug Hudson, in this lawsuit. Missouri has a strict no-call law; Simplex denies any wrongdoing, saying it didn’t break any TCPA laws and was simply reaching out to consumers who had expressed an interest in the products or club. But, the state received five complaints from Missouri residents who claimed that Simplex was trying to sell products, not trying to fulfill existing orders. Simplex sells glucose meters, test strips, and medical supplies, through the company’s Diabetes Care Club (a home supply program). It denies TCPA wrongdoing, saying it's not a telemarketing firm and was only reaching out to existing customers or those who have expressed interest in becoming a customer. The lawsuit will have to determine what kind of calls Simplex made, and to whom. As an industry leader, Simplex will have a hard time acting like it didn't know breaking the TCPA was illegal. The TCPA restricts telephone solicitations, the use of automated telephone equipment, and unsolicited advertisements. Specifically, the TCPA limits the use of automatic dialing systems, prerecorded voice messages, unsolicited text messages, and junk faxes.
