WOW! Interview with Attorney Mick Meagher –
June 25, 2018 – The centers often keep patients addicted so they can keep administering services, said Mick Meagher, an independent California attorney who specializes in consumer protection. When the patient has exhausted the plan’s addiction-treatment benefit, the facility kicks the patient out and stops paying their premium. “The abuse is so obscene, it’s mind-boggling,” Meagher said. There are a whole host of problems with the drug rehab industry, according to a major investigation by the Southern California News Group: No degree, medical or otherwise, is required to get a facility license; and some centers are administering subpar, and even unnecessary, care and then billing insurance companies for it in the hopes of earning high reimbursements.
