TAMPA, Fla., May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Comprehensive Care Corporation ("CompCare") (OTC BB: CHCR), a leading behavioral health, substance abuse and psychotropic pharmacy management services provider for managed care companies throughout the U.S., today announced that its revenues for the first quarter of 2012 ending March 31, 2012 totaled $17,890,000. Net income totaled $80,000 for the quarter.
"We are pleased to announce that CompCare achieved a profit, albeit modest, for its first quarter of 2012. This was an important goal for CompCare following completion of significant changes in our business structure and the streamlining and automation of key business functions," said Robert Kulbick, the Company's new president.
"We are especially pleased that our at-risk pharmacy contracts produced $9,597,000 in revenue in the first three months of 2012. The 19.8 percent increase over the first quarter of last year is attributable primarily to a 9.9 percent increase in members and a contract rate increase, effective Jan. 1, 2012, from our major customer in Puerto Rico for whom CompCare manages the psychotropic drug benefits," Mr. Kulbick explained. "We are also pleased that general and administrative costs decreased in the quarter to $515,000 compared to $1,161,000 in the same period in 2011."
"For the past two years, CompCare's management team has worked hard to improve the foundation of the Company, such that it can support substantial, profit oriented growth. We now offer services in 46 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, compared to a much smaller number in 2009. We have recently launched the expansion of our drug management program on an at-risk basis to health plans and self insured entities to reduce their drug spend. Plus we have expanded our service provider network to approximately 35,000 providers. There is still much work to be done. However, we are proud of our progress and committed to further improving the Company's performance at all levels," Mr. Kulbick said.
