Glenn Prives, Member of the Firm, co-presents a CLE webinar, “Physician-Owned Management Services Organizations: Regulatory Compliance, Contract Considerations, Enforcement,” hosted by Strafford.
MSOs are increasingly playing an important role in streamlining operations, thereby freeing physicians to focus on patient care. Physicians are setting up more physician-owned MSOs. Some are setting up the structure in the hopes of attracting investment in their existing structure.
Physician-owned MSOs can be designed to cover various services, including financial management, coding and billing, and purchasing, to optimize the operation of the practice. The physician practice may also turn to an MSO to provide services such as risk management and regulatory compliance.
Counsel must carefully structure MSO agreements to ensure compliance with the complex regulatory requirements, including anti-kickback laws. Further, physicians must understand exactly what services the MSO is providing and the limitations of the MSO.
Listen as the panel of healthcare attorneys examines physician-owned MSOs. The panel discusses contract considerations, regulatory issues, and recent governmental investigations/enforcement. The panel also offers best practices for determining whether to pursue physician-owned MSOs and structuring physician-owned MSOs.
