Change Up, Mash Up
Enough about skilled nursing facilities! LTC Contracting’s newest video will focus on the great work substance abuse and addiction treatment centers are doing, although there are some corrupt providers out there taking advantage.
Steve Shain: Hey everyone! We’re back, thank you for joining me again. This time we’re changing things up. We’re not talking about skilled nursing facilities. Enough with the skilled nursing facilities, we don’t want to hear about it anymore! Today we’re talking about substance abuse and addiction treatment centers. These guys are doing such wonderful work, they really are. As I meet with more and more providers, I am so impressed with the dedication that they have and the real interest they have for the rehabilitating of the people that are there and it makes me happy.
Know what I mean? So it makes me happy but at the same time, there are always a couple of bad apples out there. They’re there, there are some unscrupulous ones out there trying to target people that are vulnerable and therefore, if you heard about it, Google AdWords as of January of this year went global in their band on keywords that are related to this industry. So providers that have been looking out to use keywords in order to target potential clients are now unable to do this because of those unscrupulous providers out there. Which is kind of serious.
Know what I mean? So what do we do? We got a lot of good guys, a couple of bad guys, or not bad guys but misdirected, and therefore the industry is having it a little tough. What also is tough is that the insurance companies are still trying to get their hands around this industry because it’s blowing up with the opioid crisis and so much more need in the community for addiction treatment that they were still working with some providers out of network, some in-network and it’s really gotten complicated where their networks are becoming robust. So, we at LTC Contracting are working with the insurers and trying to identify the correct fit for the providers that work for them and at the same time working with providers and making sure they are getting the best coverage for their clients through the insurance company. So, we’re trying to work things out, it’s really very interesting and yes, as I mentioned, it’s a little serious. (piano music) But also a little happy.
Anyways, thank you so much for watching. I hope you enjoyed this. Please give me feedback, give me some feedback, I need some feedback. Tell me how it is, tell me if you’d like anything else changed so we can make this better for you.
