Florida Patient Brokering Act
The Florida Patient Brokering Act was passed after it was brought to the Florida Legislature’s attention that numerous mental health and substance abuse hospitals made payments or various forms of remuneration to individuals who referred patients with insurance coverage to their facilities. Those who referred the patients would receive a sort of kickback, or commission, on these referrals. This act is very clear regarding referrals from outside the practice group, but less clear regarding referrals from within the practice group. Our attorney team can thoroughly evaluate the specifics of your case and fight for the best possible outcome on your behalf.
What is considered an illegal kickback?
- Concert or Sports Event Tickets
- Gift Certificates
- Gym Memberships
- Rent/Rent Subsidies
- Plane Tickets
This list is not comprehensive; however, anything given in exchange for referring patients is generally considered patient brokering.
