Health Care Law Practices

Physicians and health care related businesses face the special challenges posed by a tightly regulated industry and the day-to-day concerns of managing a successful business. Our attorneys have a deep knowledge base in laws that affect physicians and their practices, including stock, anti-kickbacks, Florida patient self-referral, and Florida fee-splitting. Our goal is to find solutions that allow physicians to invest in deals and capitalize on their entrepreneurial spirit.

Health Care Law Practices:

  • Practice Mergers
  • Cardiac Cath Labs
  • Surgery Centers
  • Home Health
  • Medical Supply and Equipment
  • Diagnostic Imaging Centers
  • Physician Compensation Arrangements
  • Buy-sell Agreements
  • Joint Ventures with Hospitals and Other Providers
  • Sale of Practices
  • Non-Compete Agreements

For large group practices or smaller, single-specialty practices, health care professionals and providers of ancillary health care services call on Reznicsek, Fraser, White & Shaffer, P.A. for representation in structuring their relationships. Our corporate experience allows us to bring a unique perspective to developing the right combination of agreements involving:

  • Buy-in by a new physician
  • Buy-out in the event of retirement, death, disability or other reasons
  • Productivity-based compensation arrangements
  • Voting rights
  • Management structure

We assist our health care clients in establishing a wide range of business types, including physical therapy clinics, diagnostic imaging centers, cardiac cath labs, management companies, billing companies and ambulatory surgery centers.

Our attorneys have devoted hundreds of hours analyzing Stark, Anti-Kickback, Florida fee-splitting and Florida patient self-referral laws to ensure compliance with the myriad of federal and state regulations that govern physician ownership of these entities.

Our work for clients in the health care industry also encompasses negotiations with hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities, and assistance in structuring exclusive arrangements, recruiting agreements, physician income guaranty agreements, medical director agreements, management agreements and more.
