FTC Blasts Phony ‘Health Insurers’
Courthouse News Service

Health Care One and its marketers are scamming the public by claiming to be affiliated with the president’s health-care reform, the FTC claims in Federal Court. Operating under eight names, the Arizona-based LLC “masquerades” as an insurer and charges up to $100 a month for alleged “discount” services that doctors and pharmacies will not honor, the FTC says. “Since 2006, Health Care One has been a seller and marketer of a ‘national healthcare discount program’ which masquerades as health insurance and promises to save consumers money on their healthcare costs,” according to the complaint.
