Consumers Warned About Discount Health Plans
Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi (D) on Monday warned consumers against purchasing health insurance products from two companies and their operators, the East Bay Business Times reports. Jesse Casares and Joe Casares of Houston and their companies, Prime Med Care and Prime Star Health Care, are not licensed to do business in California.
Investigators say the operators have sent faxes advertising discount health care plans to consumers.
Garamendi said he issued a cease and desist order directing the Casareses and their companies to stop doing business in California (East Bay Business Times, 10/30).
