Atlantis Health Plan Announces: Manhattan Medical Group Now Open for Business!
The opening of the Atlantis Manhattan Medical Group has generated a lot of excitement within the health insurance community. The Atlantis Medical Group is now in three locations - Manhattan Brooklyn and Queens. The Atlantis Medical Group was created exclusively for Atlantis members to receive various medical services with no co-payments and limited wait time. The response from the nearly 2,000 members that have accessed the Medical Group is unbelievable. One such member said "I was so impressed by the quality of the staff…and the doctor treated me like I've known him my whole life."
Based on the popularity of our the Atlantis Medical Group, we are developing a new Health Plan product. Our Atlantis "Signature" health plan will be geared towards using our Atlantis Medical Group as the focal point of the healthcare delivery system. The Signature Plans will be approximately 10% less than our current HMO product and, as always with the Medical Group, there are no copays. More information will follow in early 2007.
Look for new Center locations in The Bronx and Staten Island in early ’07!

Queens celebrates healthy new business with Atlantis Health Plan
As health care costs skyrocket for small businesses in New York City, Atlantis is making a significant contribution to the health of its Atlantis members by opening its second Medical Group on Tuesday, July 18, 2006 in Kew Gardens, Queens. The opening was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by representatives from the Queens Borough President's office and Queens Chamber of Commerce President Bill Egan.
The new state-of-the-art medical office, located at 80 - 02 Kew Gardens Boulevard, offers Atlantis Health Plan members exclusive access to pediatric services, blood work, immunizations, sonograms, EKGs and others tests with no co-pays. Members also receive the benefit of limited wait time - in both the lobby and exam rooms. The Queens Medical Group is located near public transportation and is easily reached by car.
Atlantis' first Medical Group opened in Brooklyn in the Fall of 2005, to rave reviews from its members. "Prior to my first appointment I spoke with a few people in the lobby who had already been there for several visits… one gentleman said that the staff treated him like family. Others were amazed by the technology and the state of the art equipment in the medical office. Also I ended up saving sixty dollars in co-payments for my check-up, blood work and X-Rays," explained Walter Clark, an Atlantis Health Plan member since 2002.
Atlantis' CEO, Dr. Sury Anand, said that the company will open its third Medical Group in Manhattan in late August of 2006, which will offer a vast array of medical services.
"The Health Plan's central goal is to advance the cost-effective delivery of high quality health care in the City, harnessing the skill, experience and knowledge of professionals at every step of the health care management and delivery process," said Dr. Anand. "We seek to recreate the health care partnership that once existed between the patient and the professional."
