California targets discount health plans

Los Angeles Times, February 8, 2010

California regulators are trying to rein in discount health and dental plans that officials say frequently overstate benefits, offer little if any savings, and promise access to doctors who aren't part of the system. Some of the discounters fraudulently market themselves as insurance, while preying on the poor, the elderly, and others who urgently need care, officials told the Los Angeles Times.
