  • “Practice leasing” and professional services agreements
  • Hospital-physician joint ventures and contractual arrangements

  • Subsidies and captive professional entities
  • Non-physician ownership in health care, including private equity in physician purchases and regulatory issues
  • Physician employment and other service contract models
  • Compensation structure and fair market value and commercial
    reasonableness assessments
