Our leadership position in the healthcare industry makes us adept at understanding the unique business needs of Management Services Organizations (MSOs). Because we know every aspect of healthcare law, we frequently sit at the same table with MSOs and providers. We are masters at the complex issues that arise around practice management related non-medical business functions. We hammer out MSO legal agreements around the corporate practice of medicine doctrine and help MSOs navigate the fraud and abuse arena, including anti-kickback, self-referral and fee-splitting regulations. MSOs rely on us for our highly-attuned sensitivity to the complex interplay between developing integrated practice care standards and realizing savings with third party payors, based on our shared vision of transforming the delivery of healthcare services.
