Patient Brokering


“Patient brokers” are bad people who take advantage of vulnerable patients, by luring them in and out of treatment by bribes or financial incentives, so they can make a profit. While everyone agrees that “patient brokering” is harmful to patients and needs to be stopped, it is also true that there are people who are helping patients and their loved ones find a good treatment facility and expanding their access to services that meet their needs. To discuss this topic, we’re joined by guests: Audrey Smith, Harry Nelson, Jamie Callahan, Melissa Mucci and Desiree Raucci.
