I Thought This Sort Of Thing Had Been Outlawed

How bizarre. If I’m reading this story correctly, the doctor described here is providing services for people in exchange for money that they themselves give her.
Is that sort of transaction even legal?
I must not be reading the article correctly.

P.S. Even Homer Simpson’s brain was smart enough to understand this:
(Homer finds $20 under the couch) “Twenty dollars? I wanted a peanut!”
Brain: “Twenty dollars can buy many peanuts.”
Brain: “Money can be exchanged for goods and services.”
As for what that says about people who equate ‘health care’ with ‘insurance’ or ‘health plan’, and think one cannot have the former without the latter, and whose every policy prescription points toward making the latter the primary/only way anyone receives health care services – well, I’ll leave that as an exercise for the reader.
