Oct. 2, 2021 – “People with substance use disorder deserve quality treatment options that are safe and effective,” Attorney General Maura Healey said in a statement. “As the opioid epidemic continues to plague our communities, we’re not going to let patients and their families be exploited and have their pain further compounded.”

Hislop, when reached by The Boston Globe, said, “I was never involved in anything like that.” A voicemail message was left with Hirsch.

Hislop was paid commissions in 2016 when he worked as a “runner,” recruiting patients at Massachusetts substance abuse meetings for Florida treatment facilities, the attorney general’s office said.

He conspired with Hirsch, an insurance agent, to write false and misleading insurance policies on the patients’ behalf, the office said. The Florida facilities then billed insurance companies for treatment.
