Benefit’s of third party

Consistent, complete billing is important for facilities that depend on the revenue from insurance billing—getting it wrong may be costly and wasteful. Outsourcing your billing can help you ensure that it is done correctly and that you are paid on time and completely for the Client care you provide.

Third-party billing can also help reduce paperwork around your office and office space, ensure that specialists are assisting with your billing, and can help reduce or prevent billing and authorization errors.

 

Affordability

It may be more affordable for you to outsource your billing, because you can avoid hiring in-house staff. This can save personnel costs such as pay, benefits, and training expenses. You would not have to supervise anyone, either. If you have office assistants at your clinic, they can fulfill other responsibilities instead of working on billing. This can reduce your overhead and help free up financial resources for other aspects of your treatment operations.

Ongoing reporting

 

Lucrative Consulting can provide you with ongoing reports. This way, you can know more about how successful the business side of your treatment center is and what, if anything, you need to do in order to make your billing process more successful. This can help you avoid micromanaging your office employees. Instead, you can request a quick report on your billing and check up on how that side of your business is going.

Ongoing and continuing education, replicable framework, and the standard of utilizing a team approach are combined to make the EAGALA model a successful treatment program! Under the EAGALA Model, both a License Professional Counselor and a certified Equine Specialist work collaboratively to ensure clients get the therapeutic attention and support they need as they make life changes.

Oh…..let’s not forget one of our most important team members, “The Horse”!

 

The most effective work happens on the ground.

The EAGALA Model involves no riding or horsemanship, making it both safe and effective. Clients work directly with horses face-to-face on the same footing. This ground level work enables clients to better perceive the horses’ actions and reactions as they work to process and solve their life challenges. Under the trained eye of the EAGALA Treatment Team, horses offer clients honest feedback and usable information that helps them understand how their process and actions affect others and impacts their lives.

 

The EAGALA Model is client-centered and solution-oriented.

Equine Assisted-Psychotherapy is built on the ground that it’s the clients who best determine the kind of life changes they need to make in order to improve their lives. The job of the EAGALA Treatment Team is to put the EAGALA Model to work to meet the clients’ goals by engaging the unique, intuitive power of horses to help them understand their process and practice the changes they want to make in a safe, supportive setting.

Most of our clients in recovery live in two very distinct worlds:

A supportive world of meetings, therapy and recovery talk and the hard, unforgiving world of everything else. You’ve seen it too many times. Our clients can say the words with total conviction but when they hit a roadblock in that hard, unforgiving world, recovery can go off the rails. What’s missing is a place and a process to translate recovery talk into recovery action. What’s needed is hands-on practice putting recovery principles to work, without fear of judgment or the real-world consequences that can lead to relapse. The mental health professionals, equine specialists and horses making up The EAGALA Network offer the healing place and proven process that can help you help your clients succeed at walking the walk.

 PLAYING The United States of Addiction: Body Brokering

The following material contains mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.

The Doctors continue to examine the opioid epidemic in our United States of Addiction series, this time we investigate the fraudulent profiting off of those suffering from addiction, which is called body brokering. A body broker is a transporter who receives kickbacks from sober home operators for bringing in addicts who have good health insurance.

The Doctors are joined by parents Victoria and Jerry, whose son Skyler is dealing with drug addiction. They claim they were victims of body brokering after their son left his treatment facility in Florida and was then transferred to numerous treatment centers and sober homes every few weeks. Jerry says he was soon caught up in an ongoing cycle. Jerry tells The Doctors a pattern emerged where Skyler was checking into a new detox center on Sunday and then checking out later in the week on Friday and eventually ending up in a new location. They claim the goal is for patients to continue to relapse in order to keep them in a cycle of different rehab centers in order to keep profiting off of their insurance.

Watch: Disturbing Details of Body Brokering

Victoria and Jerry say the prime target is people age 18 to 25 who are still on their parent’s insurance. Jerry says having an insurance card is a “gateway” for body brokering. Jerry says that Skyler also told them conditions at these fraudulent centers were terrible with allegations of medication withholding, not providing food and even alleged forced sex.

Skyler’s parents say they have personally spent upwards of $75,000 of their money and their insurance has been billed somewhere between $500,000 to $600,000 for the multiple treatment facilities that Skyler was in.

Dr. Barry Reiman, the founder of Satori Waters, joins the show to explain more about this issue. He says in 2016 Florida passed a law making patient brokering a third-degree felony. Prior to this, he recounts how body brokers would often wait outside AA meetings and would target addicts giving them drugs and money to lure them into a new program.

Watch: I Was a Victim of Body Brokering

Amanda, who was a victim of body brokering in Florida, survived being caught in this cycle. She tells The Doctors she saw rampant drug use, people overdosing and drug paraphernalia in these treatment centers. So how did she break the cycle?

“I knew that if I stayed there I was either going to die or it was just going to be same insanity over and over again,” she shares of her breaking point. After losing a close friend to drug addiction, Amanda says she was inspired her to finally get sober and she’s been clean since July of 2016.

In order to avoid being the victim of body brokering, Dr. Reiman shares red flags to watch out for, which include:

  • Promises of free rent from a treatment center or sober home
  • Free airfare to the center or sober house
  • A center approving a patient without an assessment or knowing anything clinical
  • An offer of drugs before taking someone to detox
  • An offer of money to come to a come to treatment center

The Doctors encourage anyone who believes they or a loved one is a victim of body brokering to contact the police or the district attorney.

Victoria and Jerry’s insurance company released a statement to The Doctors, reading, “Our first concern is the health and well-being of customers, and providing access to appropriate, quality care provided by contracted drug rehabilitation facilities. Unfortunately, there are those who will take advantage of vulnerable people, which is a toxic byproduct of our nation’s burgeoning drug epidemic.  We have extensive processes in place to prevent and detect fraud, to help protect patients and their families, the community, and support legitimate rehab centers.”
