Low-cost New York City doctor told to increase fees

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, March 13, 2009
A New York City doctor whose low-cost healthcare plan angered state officials has agreed to increase his fees. The New York Insurance Department told John Muney, MD, to end the $79-a-month medical service at his AMG Medical Group clinics. Department spokesman Andy Mais said Muney was violating state law by basically operating as an insurance operator without a license. The monthly fee buys unlimited office visits, including certain tests and in-office surgeries.
