No, this is legal this is fraud in the inducement of contract along with the contract being one of adhesion. You should take the matter to court and sue the insurance company not only for breach of contract , for fraud and being a contract of adhesion (i.e., one that seeks to essentially trick the common person) and seek punitive damages against insurer.
