Hi, I'm an alternative health practitioner, and have treated a family under very favorable insurance policy to my medicine. Recently a daughter of this family got very serious injury and caused almost a million dollar medical bill to this family. The mom now wants a second job almost immediately, but I had been considering her as a good candidate of administrative manager and assistant for my business for long time. I'd like to know if there is conflict of interest to hire patients of mine when I make money from the health insurance already. Does it possibly make a problem? Thank you!
If I keep treating other family members of her, but finish treating her, still do I have similar conflict?
Oh, I see! Thank you so much!!
