    Healthcare providers and healthcare facilities operate in a complex and evolving legal and regulatory environment.  When the parties to an agreement include one or more physicians and healthcare organizations, contractural agreements that in other environments involve little or not regulation are often subject to a variety of federal and state laws, rules and regulations.  This book provides an overview of common legal and regulatory issues involved in employment contracts and service agreements between physicians and healthcare organizations for clinical and administrative services.

    There are many types of healthcare organizations and physician specialties and subspecialties that exist in healthcare today, as a result arrangements between physicians and healthcare organizations require several forms.  In this book you will find:

    ��� An overview  of regulatory issues in physician contracting, including the Stark Law, the Anti-kickback Statute as well as issues related to contracting with tax-exempt organizations
    ��� Contractural considerations for both employment and service agreements
    ��� A quick-reference checklist for lawyers drafting and reviewing physician contracts
    ��� Sample term-sheet provisions for a physician employment agreement

    While this book discusses the Stark Law and the Anti-kickback Statute, you may also wish to expand your library by adding, What Is...Stark Law? or What Is...The Anti-Kickback Statute? to your list of reference materials.
