NY Insurance Department Forces Low-cost Doctor to Raise Fees
From Dr. Mark Perry's Carpe Diem blog, "NY Bureaucrats Force Low-Cost Doc to Raise Fees". Apparently the New York City physician pictured above, Dr. John Muney, was offering uninsured patients a broad range of medical care for $79 per month plus $10 per office visit (as many visits as patients needed), and the New York insurance regulators challenged him, claiming that he was offering insurance without a license. Dr. Muney had to raise his per office visit to $33 to become compliant with state insurance regulators.
The photo of Dr. Muney is from Dr. Perry's blog.
