Discount health plan firm accused of fraud in California

San Francisco Chronicle, February 23, 2010

California regulators have cracked down on an Arizona company that issued discount health plan cards to California consumers, accusing the firm of fraudulently claiming the products being sold were insurance and offering services that didn't exist. The state Department of Managed Health Care ordered Healthcare One LLC and its four affiliates—Elite Healthcare, Easy Life Healthcare, Republic Healthcare and Global Healthcare—to stop doing business in California or face a court challenge, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
