Drug rehabs California new patient brokering laws

California Drug Rehabs Vs Patient Brokering

California drug rehabs are starting to feel the pain of new patient brokering laws and it’s only going to get worse. Learning from history is one of the most valuable tools in life. What California is now experiencing in drug rehab marketing legislation, Florida has been through. Florida with it’s “new Florida model” has set the pace for patient brokering laws in the drug and alcohol addiction treatment industry.

California Drug Rehabs New Laws Affecting Marketing

Drug rehabs California new patient brokering laws affecting substance abuse treatment centers.California drug rehabs and drug rehabilitation centers across the US have been operating unethically for many years. The heroin epidemic has exposed many fraudulent practices in this 40 billion dollar a year industry. Lawmakers are making their way across the nation with patient brokering laws to save lives and protect the vulnerable. The new laws in California are going to directly affect the ability to operate in the state if they are operating unethically, or adopt a healthy business and marketing mix.

California Drug Rehabs Need Proven Business and Marketing Strategies

The California Department of Healthcare Services (DHCS) website displays a Temporary Suspension Order, Revoked and Notice of Operation in Violation of Law Program List. This list has 84 substance abuse treatment centers.

California substance abuse treatment centers and sober livings are going to have to adopt ethical business and marketing practices to survive. They need to look at and understand what happened in Florida over the past 1-1/2 years to navigate the new and difficult landscape. Some ethical treatment centers in Florida were forced to close their doors. Whether California drug rehabs are operating ethically or participating in some form of patient brokering, they must adopt new business and marketing strategies. Digital Darwinism is the #1 reason these centers have failed. Substance abuse facilities across the nation are losing the battle between drug rehab SEO vs digital Darwinism.

Florida Addiction Conferences Providing Ethical and Proven Strategies Coming to California

Addiction-Conferences-in-Costa-Mesa-CaliforniaIn Florida, many substance abuse treatment centers received ethical and proven business strategies at 14 EMP (Ethical Marketing Practices) Addiction Executive Conferences. This conference series is coming to Costa Mesa, California on 1/22/19. This behavioral health conference series is not the typical conference offered in the industry. It provides a unique talk show host and Town hall forum with now powerpoint presentations. The event features 5 proven, Executive Thought Leaders on a panel. They are asked several questions by the host, and then the event is an open forum. The event is structured for CEO, Executives, Directors, and Outreach to get ethical and proven marketing solutions that they can put into place immediately. This California premiere event is Co-hosted by Awakenings.

What Are the Patient Brokering Laws for California Drug Rehabs?

California drug rehabs new patient brokering lawsSenator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) signed the SB 1228, Lara. Alcoholism or drug abuse recovery and treatment services: referrals law on September 27, 2018. This law demonstrates that California will no longer tolerate patient brokering by substance use treatment centers and individual’s partaking in unethical marketing. Lawmakers still have much work to do with sober homes and enforcing the new laws.

While California used Florida laws to mold their legislation, it has some more severe ramifications that deter unethical practices. For instance, under the law, either the addiction treatment center or individual professional can have their license or credentials revoked, extended or denied. If a substance use disorder (SUD) facility loses their license, it will take about 18 months to reopen. Florida does not have this law on the books for drug rehabs West Palm Beach.

California Drug Rehabs Must Learn From Florida

California drug rehabs must adopt a healthy business and marketing mix.Florida was the first state to focus on patient brokering laws in the substance abuse industry. They have set the pace for the nation, but it has affected some ethical operators that did not change their business and marketing strategy. The media was quick to jump on the bandwagon providing, for the most part, unethical journalism.

The negative “Florida shuffle” press and isolated exposure of patient brokering in Florida caused individuals seeking addiction treatment to stay away. This caused some ethical drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers in Florida to close their doors. More importantly, it may have put them into life-threatening situations that are happening across the nation. This negative press is now being experienced by California with the media’s “Rehab Riviera” label.

California drug rehabs need to adopt ethical and healthy business best practices. Many need to look closely at their current marketing plan and drug rehab marketing mix. As Florida has experienced, relying on laissez-faire strategies will put your business at extreme risk. Mainly using boots on the ground, calls centers and PPC are not enough with the rapidly changing environment. you may also want to join the exclusive California Addiction Professionals Referral Groups.

Drug Rehabs Marketing Focusing on education

Drug Rehabs Losing Business Focus

Drug rehabs during 2018 and for approximately the last five (5) years have been experiencing a trend which has been infecting the financial health and welfare of the addiction treatment industry. Dale Redlich, CEO of Pay2Patient and well respected past treatment center owner for over 20 years provides this article with his insight on some issues that owners are facing in our industry with this article.

A Snapshot of the business and Drug Rehabs Marketing Side

Drug rehabs have been experiencing a trend that has manifested itself in recent years with;

  • downsizing
  • bankruptcies
  • selling off of assets
  • staff firings
  • lack of staff replacement
  • lack of staff additions
  • lower staff salaries
  • changes in marketing techniques
  • development  of joint ventures with financially sound publically traded companies
  • mergers and acquisitions

In addition, there is a desperate attempt by many owners and operators of addiction treatment facilities (including the detoxification and lab segment) to develop banking, investment, and other financial relationships which might result in an infusion of new capital into an otherwise unhealthy marketplace. Basically, inexperienced owners and operators where wasting financial resources hand over foot all in an attempt to “out do “ their competitors in order  to try to offer more and more luxury within their drug rehabs as they were attempting to compete for a very limited supply of high paying clients

This trend has and will continue to affect not only full-service outpatient, PHP, inpatient, and residential addiction treatment centers West Palm Beach and across the nation, but also all of the ancillary support businesses including, sober living facilities, halfway houses, and private practice therapists as well as labs.

Drug Rehabs Pain Points

Drug Rehabs and Addiction Treatment Centers warning SignsThe signs have been evident for a substantial time period, but the problem has been and will continue to grow more severe as time continues. The reasons for this trend varies but in general, it can be seen as being attributable to a number of predictable factors such as;

  • a severely growing level of competition for the same patients,
  • changes in the number of payments made for treatment by the insurance industry
  • new and far-reaching legislation which has severely limited the ability of such facilities to engage in traditional marketing
  • a lack of sufficient capital from an operational standpoint
  • rapid and unnecessary expansion
  • an attempt to offer only the most high priced luxury

It may also be seen as a failure of the new wave of financially inexperienced and undercapitalized owners who have been unable to foresee such trends and also have miscalculated the effects of massive changes occurring in the insurance marketplace both for in network and out of network providers.

Insurance Companies Controlling the Drug Rehabs

insurance-companies-not-paying-drug-rehabsOne area which evidences this trend in the insurance industry. It is the growing direction for providers to attempt to change from out of network to full in-network providers. Most facilities these days are desperately becoming only in-network providers even though the amount per day paid by the carriers for in-network benefits has steadily been falling.

No longer do the carriers have to devise methods to try to forced drug rehabs to become in network.  It was only a few short years ago when the carriers were paying exorbitant amounts per day to out of network providers and the thought process of owners at that time was to remain out of network in order to reap the benefits of the absurd amounts of money which the carriers were paying for out of network benefits.  This could not continue forever.

In fact , there were some insurance carriers such as Federal Blue Cross Blue Shield and Empire in Florida which continued to pay large unsustainable amounts  for all of the services insurable but rather than paying the provider the carriers were ( and some continue ) issuing their reimbursement checks directly to the patient or subscriber which resulted in many cases, and still does so result, in  the insurance checks being cashed by the patient and the provider never realizing its fees for services rendered.

Understanding Drug Rehabilitation Centers Money Owed

Behavioral Health Collections for Drug RehabsObviously, this was and continues to damage the providers financially as they are rendering services in good faith but never receiving the checks from the carriers.  The reality is that many providers did not even realize that their check-in reimbursement for services rendered had not even been sent to them by the carrier. Some of the providers were losing exorbitant amounts of money in this fashion and in some cases not even realizing that this was happening.

The result of all of the above circumstances is that the drug rehabs have split into the “have’s” and “have-nots”.  If you attend industry events you will likely realize that not only have the attendance numbers plummeted but the actual exhibitors themselves are often comprised only of the larger most well funded (and often time owned by publically traded companies). Many centers are looking for smaller, focused events that also provide business and drug rehab marketing education to survive the competitive landscape. In addition, they need to implement strategies of how to properly prepare for these addiction conferences.

It is unbelievably expensive for a facility to finance large numbers of their marketing staff to attend these events where they are actually only marketing to other marketing staff from other facilities. This is financial lunacy, without getting educated on proven business and marketing strategies, unless the provider has extremely deep pockets which some of them still do.

The savviest operators now realize that the money which used to be spent on traditional marketing and attendance at events that do not provide proven business and drug rehab marketing practices is much better utilized with drug rehab SEO, social media and other types of online selling of their services. One of the biggest mistakes they make is using boots on the ground as their main marketing strategy. Without a robust, healthy and planned marketing mix, many are at great risk of closing their doors.

Getting Control Over Debt Collection and Revenue Cycle Management

So, where does this leave us? The purpose of this article is not to claim that we have the one and only solution to the financial problems stated above which have grown in recent years

increasing lost revenue with debt collection for drug rehabsHowever, at the same time that are certain methods which at almost no cost can result in the infusion of additional capital into a sagging P/L statement. Debt Collection with revenue cycle management for drug rehabs is one potential partial solution to the financial problems being experienced in the healthcare industry and in particular, the addiction treatment industry.

The collection of a debt is a financial strategy which has been around since the time of the money lenders in biblical times. If a company lends money, or advanced money or fails to receive legitimate funds on component aspects of its business it should be entitled to take appropriate action steps to recover the resulting debt if such debt is attributable to the loan or advancement of funds to the potential debtor. There is nothing immoral about a company taking steps to collect its fair debt, In fact, it is business malpractice not to go after the fair debt which is owed.

What is Drug Rehab Revenue Cycle Management?

Revenue Cycle Management is a fancy way of describing the method of tracking accounts receivable and utilizing such funds at the appropriate time to pay operational internal debt on an ongoing and predictable basis.

Pay 2 Patient, LLC is not a billing company but strictly a debt collection company and also assists its clients in the RCM process so that the client is able to pay operational expenses as such becomes due. The collection of debt provides the company which is owed money to collect at least a portion of what is owed and thereby add to the pot of financial resources available to pay expenses. There are some addiction providers we know that have been owed millions of dollars in uncollected debt and ultimately had to go out of the business of course.

Reclaiming Precious Operating Capital

The problem experienced by the addiction treatment industry now in many cases is that the provider company has not taken sufficient steps to ensure that it has sufficient operating capital each week or each month to pay operational expenses when due.  The money gets spent in a variety of other ways as described above. And often times there are is no margin of error which results in layoffs and other dire consequences.

It defies our understanding of why a health care provider which is owed money would not take every reasonable and legal action to collect money which it is owed. It seems to be lunacy but at the least very bad business practice.

Reclaiming Receivables Doesn’t Cost Much

Substance Abuse Billing #1 Costly Mistake for drug rehabsThe ROI to employ debt collection methods is so low as to beg for utilization.  The process is very simple but at the same time there are Federal and State regulations which must be complied with and of course, the privacy of the patient/debtor needs to be protected. This can all be accomplished by utilization of the proper documentation.

Don’t get me wrong. It is not easy to collect the debt, especially the kind of debt when the carrier has sent the reimbursement check to the patient and the check has been cashed.  Retrieval of those checks, or the cash itself, is very difficult, but none the less doable.

Collections methods vary depending upon the type of debt, the age of the debt, the identity and location of the debtor, Federal and State Law, peculiarities of the court system, and other factors but the fact remains that the collection of debt can be “found’ money and help immensely in providing additional and needed revenue to the provider  to help with the covering of operational expenses.

Drug Rehabs Regaining Business Focus to Survive a New Industry

There is nothing dirty, or unseemly or embarrassing about a company taking every step possible to recover money which it is owed. After, all don ‘t companies which the provider owes money to try to collect such funds? And, if you’re worried about upsetting the debtor then think about the fact that your employees expect to be paid every week and in my own humble opinion those individuals are a lot more significant than the person who owes your facility money.

Whether you are after co-pays, deductibles, self-pay fees still owed,  insurance checks which were sent to the patient, client loans, or other debt your company is entitled to take all lawful means to collect this money.  To do less is to put your company at further financial risk.

Addiction Conferences by Behavioral Health Network Resources

How to Prepare for Addiction Conferences

Addiction conferences preparation has benefits for addiction treatment centers, detox’s, sober livings and ancillary service providers. As behavioral health industry professionals, we are experiencing moments of change in how we operate. However, when attending mental health conferences there are several key areas to focus on to get much-needed business and marketing tools. There are several goals to bear in mind when attending addiction conferences and networking events. These goals vary depending on the position you have with your behavioral health organization. CEO’s, Executives, Directors and Outreach professionals, by design of their role, have different objectives. However, getting out of your comfort zone can pay great dividends if done strategically.

Addiction Conferences Preperation Generates ROI

Addiction conferences preparation educates on industry changes

How to perform addiction conferences preparation?

The addiction treatment industry is experiencing many different changes in the business and marketing side. It is vital that you walk away with new business strategies, marketing plan ideas, and drug rehab lead generation sources. The behavioral health industry has several critical pain points that CEO’s and Owners are experiencing. New operational and marketing laws as spreading across the nation thanks to the new “Florida Model” paving the road with their new patient brokering and operational laws as of July 1, 2017. Getting educated on ethical business and marketing strategies at addiction conferences is paramount at this critical time to survive. Some centers that continued with laissez-faire strategies, resisted change or did not seek the proper education and tools have not survived the red ocean. It is paramount for behavioral health organizations addiction conferences preparation to get specific and strategic intelligence.

CEO’s and Executives Focus on the Big Picture at Addiction Conferences

Drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers, detox’s and sober homes owners have a difficult job. They need to focus on the business, marketing and clinical side of their organization. Many addiction executives are strong on the clinical aspects and addiction treatment in general. Most have started their addiction treatment center because of their strength in this area and their passion to help others struggling with addiction. However, this is only 1/3 of what it takes to run a successful center.

When attending addiction conferences and speaking with CEO

When CEO’s and addiction Executives attend addiction conferences their conversations are much different than the conversation of let’s say Outreach professionals. According to the Harvard Business Review article, “Sales People Need a Strategy for Selling to CEOs,” CEO’s are focused on business outcomes, how decisions affect the entire organization and maximizing their time. The upper management Executives have a much wider business education. They are looking for business and marketing solutions to their pain points. Accreditation, billing procedures, collections, a decent EMR (electronic medical records system,) admissions processes, effective marketing strategies, legal aspects, new revenue sources, aftercare opportunities and many more. They generally are not there to network but to find proven and ethical solutions. They are relying on particular presenters, drug rehab marketing consultants and finding the business and marketing expert leaders attending these addiction professional conferences. They are particularly interested in drug rehab marketing strategies and billing as these are two key areas that generate revenue for the organization.

Directors are Guided by CEO’s and Executives Vision

Directors are also focused on the same areas as the CEO’s and Executives. The difference being is that they put the CEO’s and Executives vision into play. It is vital that they get better educated by the conference presenters, exhibitors a few select attendees that are specialists in whatever is on their plate at that time. While most Directors in the behavioral health industry have in-depth knowledge in many areas, they need to be experts when leading the company in new areas. They also should be evaluating current procedures and ancillary providers on a regular basis (at the very least every year) to save or generate new revenue. All of these carries great responsibility and consume great amounts of time.

Marketing Dirsctors role while attending addiction conferences

Addiction conferences preparation can provide knowledge and experience from proven thought leaders to assist drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers, detoxes and sober livings Directors in their roles. However, this can be difficult at times because at many mental health conferences there are several presentations going on at the same time. It is impossible for the Directors to be in two places at the same time. Directors need to pick and choose based on their priorities or rely on another employee to attend the other presentation.

Outreach Professionals and Business Development; Obtaining Tools is Critical

Outreach professionals for addiction treatment centers, detox’s, sober homes and service organizations have an extremely stressful position. Unfortunately, the average Outreach position lasts for about 6-12 months. They can no longer just rely on their personal connections. We have seen this on LinkedIn with our 30,000 addiction and behavioral health level one connections. Viewing these LinkedIn profiles while we are growing our tribes it is very concerning. One of the main reasons is this role has traditionally lacked in gaining useful tools to assist them in their daily jobs.

It’s obvious that Outreach professionals are constantly obtaining new clinical knowledge. However, many are not getting the tools on the business and marketing side of behavioral health that are now paramount in their success. They need customer relationship management (CRM’s,) networking tools and strategies, call center training, overall marketing, branding, social media, email marketing, closing techniques and more.

Addiction conferences provide strategies and solutions

Addiction conferences preparation should be providing some of these tools. These tools are essential in their role of generating drug rehab leads. Many owners and operators do not realize that one employee turnover costs about $20,000. Owners and Outreach professionals should aggressively be seeking these tools. Two of the biggest areas are drug rehab marketing and establishing new referral sources. Addiction treatment center marketing is such a vast area that there are always new strategies and techniques to be learned. One of many examples is business development professionals need to intimately understand the power of social media. How they portray themselves and what they put on social media is a direct reflection of their organization’s brand. It also affects establishing new referral sources. Many are ineffectively, or not using at all the #1 business networking site in the world. They are wasting valuable time, or not utilizing their time on LinkedIn.

What is Addiction Conferences Preparation?

utreach professionals must get outside the box at addiction conferencesIn any job, position or role getting out of your comfort zone enables you to grow personally and professionally. This can be difficult because human nature gravitates us towards our comfortable circles. At many substance abuse conferences, you see the same professionals forming in the same groups. Yes, it’s wonderful to chat with our familiar circles, however, it should not dominate your time at these events. Getting outside of the comfort zone, obtaining new tools, business education and forcing yourself to meet everyone in the room is paramount in the state of our industry.

This can be an overwhelming experience and non-productive if you are not prepared. Preparation, maximizing time and follow-up can make the real difference when attending substance abuse conferences. To truly get all the benefits the preparation begins far before the event.

Effective Addiction Networking Starts Weeks Before the Addiction Symposium

With addiction conferences preparation, you should be visiting the conference website. For most addiction conferences, you can get an idea of what organizations will be there. Some event websites only list the sponsors and exhibitors, while others will provide a list of everyone including the attendees.

Examine the list on the event website and write a list putting them into categories like A, B, C, and D. The A’s are the organizations that are new start-ups, organizations that you have been targeting, or ones you must chat with at the event. The B’s are your second tier and so forth. Prepare before you attend the conference. By writing the list and bringing it with you to the event you will not miss any opportunities.

Connecting prior to addiction conferences is importantOne of the best ways addiction conferences preparation is to connect prior to the event.  Most professionals in our industry do not do this. You should at least reach out to your A’s and B’s through LinkedIn prior to the event. Say you want to visit their booth or meet with them at the conference. This soft introduction says you are a professional and you are interested in meeting them. You will also get an idea of who this new potential referral source is and have some background information to reference when you chat at the event.

Make sure your organization’s brochures, business cards, and exhibitor materials are up to date. Many addiction treatment centers, Detox’s, Sober homes and ancillary service providers do a poor job of keeping these items up to date. The products and services often change, and the marketing materials do not reflect those changes. We see this all the time at the addiction Executive conferences that we hold in our industry. It was an issue until we found a promotional products vendor to work with providing these services for our sponsors and exhibitors. They also offer discounts to our participants.

Prepare for Addiction Conferences They Are Valuable

With addiction conferences preparation, drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers, opiate detox’s, inpatient rehabs, intensive outpatient treatment centers, sober livings, and ancillary service providers reap benefits. This article explains how to prepare for addiction conferences before, during and after. Get the most out of attending addiction conferences and networking events. Be strategic, maximize your time and follow-up immediately following the addiction conference.

Addiction Conferences Main CaliforniaBehavioral Health Network resources have been an addiction conferences provider for the last four years. In that time we have put on over 14 conferences attracting 150-200 at each event. They have gained the attention of CEO’s and Executives with over 150-200 attending each conference. This unique talk show host, town hall forum has become extremely popular. These addiction professional conferences cover “HOT” topics and provide attendees a chance to “ask the experts” any questions on better business practices, billing, drug testing, licensing, DCF, Accreditation, treatment, sales, marketing, and any other aspect of the addiction and behavioral health industry. Our next event in our addiction conferences EMP series will be held on 1/22/19 in Costa Mesa, California. This event will California provide proven business and marketing strategies to battle the new legislation that will be passed soon.

Are there other ways to prepare for addiction conferences? We welcome your comments!

Addiction Treatment Ancillary Services Marketing Mistakes

Addiction treatment Ancillary Services marketing mistakes are plentiful. There are many areas for these organizations to capture their target market of decision makers. Behavioral health organizations, treatment centers, and sober livings are constantly seeking new providers and re-evaluating their current sales and service providers. There are constant moments of change to find ways to save revenue or generate new revenue streams for their businesses. They are seeking ways to operate more efficiently with billing, electronic medical records, drug testing, consulting, staffing, credentialing, certification, CEU’s, insurance, website development, drug rehab SEO, consulting, aftercare apps, CRM’s, rehab directories, clinical tracking, drug manufacturers, managed payer care software, pharmacies, mergers, acquisitions, sober coaches and more.

What Are the Ways to Promote Addiction Treatment Ancillary Services Marketing

Addiction Treatment Center Marketing for Ancillary Sales and Service Organizations by Behavioral Health Network ResourcesThe key for sales and service organizations is to generate leads, establish new relationships and be a leader in their niche. This is a difficult challenge due to a lack of marketing knowledge and heavy competition in the various niches.  Sales and service organizations tend to rely upon industry events and word of mouth for their marketing. Some sales and service organizations additionally rely upon paid marketing on LinkedIn and Facebook. While these are good short-term solutions they should also include growing a targeted audience that they own and ranking on the first page of Google for key search terms.

They must concentrate on growing a targeted audience of CEO’s, Executives and Directors that are corralled in groups and personal connections on social media profiles. Once they are in the social media groups or as personal connections they can drip their marketing to them, establish trust and always be top of mind.

Drug Rehab Ancillary Business Marketing OpportunityWe have built a rehab vendors page listing addiction treatment and behavioral health sales and service organizations. Behavioral health, treatment centers, and sober living organizations are constantly trying to find ways to generate new revenue, re-evaluate their current suppliers and save money on their operating costs. Behavioral Health Network Resources is driving our addiction professional audience of over 120,000 to this page to drive traffic and interest in these providers. You can check out our current listing of these providers by clicking here.

The second thing they must concentrate on is getting to the first page of Google for key search terms. This will most likely involve a website rebuild due to lack of poor website structure. It will also require on-site search engine optimization, optimized blog posts, Google My business optimization and the building of citations.

Implementation of a Long-term Addiction Treatment Ancillary Services Drug Rehab Marketing Strategy

In comparison to addiction treatment center marketing, there is no panacea solution for their marketing needs. Seeking short-term solutions for the long-term problem always costs much more in marketing that is needed. Just like any business, it is paramount to have a web marketing strategy in place. There are five marketing objectives that should be in place;

  1. Attracting new potential clients
  2. Establishing new relationships
  3. Developing those relationships
  4. Have a reputation (branding) of being the premier service provider in their niche
  5. A robust Google My Business page that takes up a huge chunk of real estate on page one of Google

You can learn more business and marketing strategies at Behavioral Health Network Resources Addiction Conferences EMP (Ethical Marketing Practices Conference) on 10/23/18.

So How Do Sales and Service Organizations Achieve These Goals with Web Marketing?

It should start with a website that has the proper structure (including schema) and search engine optimization for key search terms. It should also include a blog that is attracting and engaging to their target audience. This means the blog posts are no so much about them, but about engaging their target audience with emotion and satisfying their pain points. It must include a social media on the most valuable mediums in our industry. Two of these must include LinkedIn and Facebook.

How to Maximize and Incorporate LinkedIn in Your Marketing Strategy

This is a definite must for all addiction treatment sales and service organizations. There is no single place other than LinkedIn where you can reach your professional target market. However, to be successful you need to implement several key components;

  1. Build targeted level one connections including CEO’s, Executives and Directors.
  2. Understand how to produce pulse posts that are not about your organization, but the needs of your potential customers.
  3. Write pulse posts is story format that attracts and engages the target market touching an emotional level of the pain points your target market is experiencing
  4. Uniform brand on profiles of all employees.
  5. Share, share and re-share pulse posts from employee’s profiles.

How to Utilize Facebook for Sales and Service Organizations

Addiction Treatment Ancillary Services Rehab Marketing Ideas on FacebookFacebook is the single largest social media that exists on the planet. This is a must for all sales and service organizations. Two of the biggest obstacles are connecting with the decision makers for their product or service and understanding where the power of this medium benefits their organization the most in their addiction treatment ancillary services marketing strategy. Organizations must understand the algorithm changes and incorporate those changes. Facebook announced in early 2018 that they are reducing the posts to individual’s boards from business profiles. However, posts from individuals and groups are still being served regularly. This means the power of Facebook’s two billion members lies in personal profiles and groups.

As a sales and service organization in the addiction treatment industry there are paramount strategies that you should put into place for your addiction treatment ancillary services marketing;

  1. Employees including CEO’s and Directors need to build targeted friends on Facebook. These friends should include decision makers like CEO’s, Executives and Directors from treatment centers and sober livings.
  2. Distribution of content from personal profiles that are attracting and engaging to the target audience. This content is not about their organization, but about how to solve the pain points of their target audience.
  3. Start and grow targeted groups. The group name and focus should not be the organization’s name, but about how to get their target audience to join the group. Once they are in the group they can sprinkle their branding and content into the group. However, they must be careful not to spam their own group.
  4. Install the Facebook Pixel on every page of their website.
  5. Format the pixel to capture their visitors for re-targeting purposes.

Patient Brokering W2 or 1099’s Important Considerations Avoid Liability

Patient brokering laws are nationwide. It is paramount for all drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers and sober livings to be well educated on the laws nationally, and on the local regulatory climate in West Palm Beach FL. and throughout southern Florida.

Understanding Patient Brokering Laws

Many addiction treatment centers, sober livings, and marketers are misinformed about their marketing contracts. Recently the Tomasso brothers thought they were covered with their marketing contracts. Many of these contracts are not in compliance and owners and marketers need to be Crystal clear on what the law requires.

From a Palm Beach Post article by Jorge Milan Palm Beach Post Staff Writer ”

“The Tomasso brothers, both residents of Boca Raton, entered into a “marketing employment contract” on Dec. 1, 2016, that “was actually for the referral of patients from Ronald’s sober home” to a substance-abuse facility run by James Tomasso’s wife, the report said.”

“Marketing employment contracts, like the one the Tomasso brothers signed, are used by treatment facilities to circumvent Florida’s patient-brokering law, which states “it is unlawful for any person to offer or pay any commission, bonus, rebate, kickback, or bribe … to induce the referral of patients or patronage to or from a health care provider,” according to Delray Beach police, which investigated the case.”

Counsel Hirshfeld, Esq. Discusses Drug Rehab Marketing Adhering to Patient Brokering Laws

David will be discussing some fundamental and wide-spread misconceptions on patient brokering and kickbacks that leave many open to legal issues. He will be sharing practical tips on how to make ethical arrangements with marketers more defensible. Below are some questions we plan on asking him.

David Hirshfeld panelist on drug rehab marketing patient brokering laws at Behavioral Health Network Resources Addiction Conferences on rehab marketingDavid Hirshfeld, Esq. is licensed to practice in Florida and New York. He currently owns a nationally respected law firm Hirshfeld PLLC. Counsel Hirshfeld has spent his 23-year legal career advising clients with respect to business arrangements among licensed health care providers, unlicensed entities in the business of healthcare, insurers and other third-party payors.  For the past five years, he has focused almost exclusively on the substance abuse treatment segment.  David was one of FARR’s original board members, and represents SAT providers, physician groups, clinics, clinical labs, lab managers, marketing and lead generation companies, billing companies, recovery residences, and is occasionally asked to advise private equity concerns as well as other law firms.  David has also served as full-time in-house counsel to several insurance companies, a healthcare marketing company, and an SAT provider.

picture of the scales of justice signifying patienr brokering laws in the addiction treatment marketing industryDavid Hirshfeld, Esq. is very well-versed in laws governing the corporate practice of medicine, fee-splitting, patient brokering laws, kickbacks, self-referrals, the scope of practice and supervision, privacy, insurance, false claims, healthcare marketing; as well as more general laws governing business entities.  As part of representing healthcare businesses, he has become expert with respect to general legal issues arising from space and equipment leases, loan documents, employment and contractor arrangements, human resource issues, wage-and-hour law, arrangements among owners within a business, and other general business arrangements not specifically related to health care or insurance.

Counsel Hirshfeld, Esq. Many Marketing Arrangments Still Not Legal

Handshake-pic-depicting-illegal-deals-breaking-patient-brokering-laws

Many recovery centers and sober livings current contracts may not protect them from criminal liability from patient brokering laws. With the current status of the addiction treatment industry, it is critical that owners and operators have contracts that are as defensible as possible. Many are relying on recommendations from inexperienced legal counsel and peers. There are still gray areas and operating ethically in compliance with the law is critical. Here are some topics we plan on asking Mr. Hirshfeld;

  • Many people seem to believe that they are free to compensate marketers based on the numbers of patients or the amount of revenue they bring to a treatment provider as long as the marketer is hired on a W-2 basis. Is it really that simple? Are you adhering to the patient brokering laws?
  • In addition to carefully choosing whether to characterize the marketer as 1099 or W-2, are there any other steps that treatment centers can take to help shore up their marketing arrangements from a regulatory perspective?

Please post any questions or comments on patient brokering below.

Combining addiction treatment marketing with a non-profit produced life-saving addiction treatment scholarships. This past addiction conference (two events in one) not only educated addiction professionals on the business side of addiction treatment but also honored and raised over $250,000 worth of addiction treatment scholarships for The Addicts Mom organization. The Addiction VIP Symposium and The Addicts Mom gala was not your average addiction professional conference. This addiction professional event attracted 55 exhibitors, 240 attendees (40 walk-ins at the door), and immediately following the symposium was a crowd of 160 for The Addicts Mom Lifetime Achievement award Gala that witnessed a rare experience of over 14 organizations demonstrating they give back by donating over $250,000 worth of addiction treatment scholarships during The Addicts Mom‘s Lifetime achievement ceremony.

$250,000 Worth of Addiction Treatment Scholarships for The Addicts Mom

And that he did, the addiction professional community stepped up and donated over $250,000 worth of services for the Addicts Mom. Charles said, “It was the work of GOD, many people, and addiction sales, service, and treatment organizations that made all of this possible.”

Addiction Conference Scholarship DonationWhen Lyle Fried, CEO of The Shores Treatment decided to sponsor the addiction professional conference, he did it humbly, on-line behind the scenes without contacting Charles Davis. Lyle and Charles have known each other for several years. When Charles contacted him after signing up to be a Co-Chair, Charles asked Lyle, “why he chose to Co-Chair the event”, Lyle said, “It was the right thing to do.” Charles said, “It was extremely exciting to be in the driver’s seat guided by a higher power and witness the addiction community coming together, and not just talking about helping, but actually stepping up and showing it.” Mr. Fried also donated some addiction treatment scholarships.
