Structuring Private Equity Healthcare Management Service Organizations: Navigating Corporate Practice of Medicine and Fee-Splitting Rules, Ensuring Regulatory Compliance

Webinar (EDT)

Paul Gomez, Member of the Firm, will co-present "Structuring Private Equity Healthcare Management Service Organizations: Navigating Corporate Practice of Medicine and Fee-Splitting Rules, Ensuring Regulatory Compliance," a webinar hosted by Strafford Publications. 

Physician practices must be prepared to participate in clinically integrated networks and be better positioned to survive in a value-based payment landscape. Management service organizations (MSOs) can help private equity firms and physicians achieve this goal while maintaining a level of autonomy for physicians, where direct ownership of the professional practice and/or direct employment by the private equity firm is not desired or possible. As private equity investment continues to grow in the healthcare sector, MSOs can provide resources and support for healthcare providers. However, counsel must consider several factors unique to healthcare when structuring private equity MSOs, including corporate practice of medicine and fee-splitting rules and prohibitions, as well as Anti-Kickback Statute, and other regulatory compliance requirements.

This webinar will examine the nuts and bolts of structuring healthcare private equity MSOs and explain considerations for both the private equity group and the physician practice, and the unique compliance risks presented by healthcare MSOs for private equity investors.

The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • What factors contribute to private equity firms and physician practices considering and entering into MSO arrangements?
  • What are the key factors for counsel in structuring MSOs?
  • What are best practices for counsel to ensure regulatory compliance in a physician practice private equity MSO?
