New York State issues warning on "patient brokering"

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - New York State is starting up a new public awareness campaign.

It aims to hammer down on "patient brokering," a practice where brokers collect payments from addiction treatment providers in exchange for referring patients to those programs.

The campaign warns New Yorkers about the practice and urges that these brokers be reported.

Reporting any suspected fraudulent addiction treatment referral services can be done by calling 1-800-553-5790 or by emailing StopTreatmentFraud@oasas.ny.gov
