In a countersuit filed on March 22, InsWeb Corp. charges that eHealthInsurance Inc., took actions-including terminating its linking agreement with InsWeb-that were designed to cause InsWeb to be unable to provide a health insurance marketplace.As a result, Gold River, Calif.-based InsWeb claims it is unable to fulfill its contractual obligations to third parties. InsWeb also alleges that eHealthInsurance has been able to steal away a few third-party sites that InsWeb had gathered into its network.

InsWeb maintains "this is merely a step in a continuing scheme by eHealthInsurance to convert InsWeb's network to its own benefit and to exclude InsWeb."
