Hospital acquisition of physician practices is on the rise. A multitude of economic and regulatory factors have made buying and selling practices more attractive for physicians and hospitals.
There are many legal issues to consider before and during the acquisition of physician practices by hospitals. A hospital and medical group, who have agreed to pursue an affiliation or acquisition deal, will find out that there are many preliminary and long-term issues to work through, any of which could derail the arrangement.
First, the desired legal structure must be determined. The structure 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.
To ensure a smooth transition, join our expert speaker Wayne J. Miller for this 60 minute audio conference and learn to reduce the complexity of the transition. Miller will address both business and legal issues that must be carefully considered before going forward.
