In general, drug treatment programs are licensed and certified as “social model,” non-medical programs and many states prohibit such programs from employing or contracting with doctors. In such states, corporate practice of medicine laws requires health professionals to provide services directly to patients. Drug treatment patients often need medical attention for health issues relating to drug use and mental health treatment for co-occurring disorders. These laws are widely misunderstood, resulting in illegal relationships between treatment programs and physicians as well as unsafe practices. How do addiction treatment facilities operate safely with physician oversight despite the byzantine laws prohibiting them from working with doctors? In this webinar, we will discuss the following: The Scope of Services for Drug & Alcohol Treatment Programs and Licensed Health Professionals, Understanding the Corporate Practice of Medicine and Corporate Structure, Unlicensed Providers and MSOs, PCs and MSOs: What is Allowable, AB848 and Enforcement Issues, How Physicians and Non-Physicians Get Paid, Restrictions on Medical Director Services, and Pre-screening of Patients Before Intake and Documentation. Pre-recorded Webinar.
