Mergers between Hospitals and Physician practices is on the rise. A multitude of economic and regulatory factors have made these mergers more attractive for physicians and hospitals. However, there are many legal issues to consider before and during the merger. First, the desired legal structure must be determined which may be influenced by regulatory and other legal issues. From there, deal details such as the payment and valuation terms, compensation terms, equity participation and other post-acquisition issues must be addressed. Likewise, deals need to be structured so that referral relationships are not threatened by violations of federal or state fraud and abuse or self-referral laws like the Stark law. Physician-hospital compensation agreements are effective vehicles to sustain quality of care, recognize the value of physician and organization performance, and enable services to be provided in a consistent, operationally sound manner. The integration of these disciplines is vitally important in ensuring compliance and effective oversight of the contracting process.
