Another hospital sells its own insurance coverage

Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center in Secaucus, N.J., joins a growing list of healthcare providers entering the insurance business. This week, the hospital officially launched its own health plan for residents and businesses who rely on the hospital and its physicians for almost all healthcare services, the Record reported.

TruPlan expects to charge 25 percent to 30 percent less than conventional health plans and won't include deductibles or out-of-pocket expenses for most office visits, treatments and services, according to the hospital. Article
