BILL NUMBER:S2004

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the penal law, in relation to establishing the class E felony
of unlawful procurement of clients, patients or customers

PURPOSE:
To make the use of "runners" illegal in New York.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Amends article 176 of the Penal Law as follows:
Section one of the bill adds three new definitions to Section 176.00,
defining "provider", "public media" and "runner." A "runner" is
defined as a person who, for a pecuniary benefit, procurers or
attempts to procure a client. patient. or customer at the direction
of request of or in cooperation with a provider whose purpose is to
seek to obtain benefits under a contract of insurance or assert a
claim against an insured or an insurance carrier for providing
services to the client, patient or customer.

Section two of the bill adds a new section 176.40 to the Penal Law to
make it a class E felony to use or act as a runner.

Section three of the bill provides for an effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
On July 15, 1999 Governor Christie Whitman of New Jersey signed into
law legislation making it a crime to act as a runner or to solicit or
employ a runner to procure clients. This law was a result of
recommendations by that state's Governor's Task Force
on Health Care Fraud.

This legislation is patterned on that law. The use of runners is a
practice which facilitates fraud and serves no legitimate purpose. A
runner is defined as a person who receives a pecuniary benefit for
procuring or attempting to procure clients. patients or customers for
a provider whose purpose is to obtain benefits under an insurance
contract for providing services. Because most fraud schemes depend on
a large volume of patients. health care providers and attorneys
engaged in fraud will often pay third parties for recruiting clients,
patients and customers. Often the client, patient or customer
receives inadequate or inappropriate care and services.

The use of runners is unfortunately common in the New York
metropolitan area. In addition to inadequate medical care, the use of
runners inflates the cost of insurance which, in turn, is borne by
the insuring public. This bill makes it illegal for a provider to
payor offer to pay a pecuniary benefit to a runner. Soliciting
clients through the public media and referring clients, patients and
customers to a provider as is otherwise authorized by law is excluded
from the prohibitions under this bill. The tem1S of this proposal are
consistent with the Bar Association's Canon of Ethics regarding
referrals.


This bill makes it a class E felony to act as a runner or hiring
another person to act as a runner.

COST TO STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:
None.
