Q: I am new to the area and am covered by MedSave and was wondering there is anyone in your office who can recommend a doctor in the NY area I would be greatly appreciative.

A: Sorry, this is a case of mistaken identity. Your e-mail was addressed to the business called that is unrelated to any of the four or five other businesses operating in the U.S., Israel, India and other locations that use the term "MedSave" in their name. Despite the similar names, these businesses are not related in any way. This service and the "OnlineAdviser" service is connected only to (and not the other MedSave companies) to provide enrollment support for low cost health plans and short term health insurance. is not involved in any other aspect of health care delivery. To reach the other company you mentioned, we suggest using the New York City telephone directory.

In 2008 was sold to Quinstreet Corporation so now none of the Medsave companies are affiliated with Tony Novak or OnlineAdviser. 

The various Web sites that are use the name "Medsave" are not related and is no longer affiliated with Tony Novak.
