Texas Lawyer For Physician-Owned Entities
Although the ability to draw on a physician’s expertise and contacts within the health care industry is an invaluable resource to a health care business, it can also present many procedural burdens for a company. Those who wish to partner with physicians in new business ventures quickly find themselves faced with a tangled web of regulations that govern physician ownership of health care entities.
I am a Texas health care lawyer at The Law Offices of Alejandro Mora, PLLC, and I can help explain regulations and assist your physician-owned business. From my office in Austin, I represent physician-owned entities in Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio and throughout Texas. Contact me, Alejandro Mora, for a free initial consultation.
A Resource For Physicians, Entrepreneurs And Health Care Entities
At my firm, I have helped many clients overcome the obstacles that physician ownership presents and create successful businesses that are in full compliance with all state and federal laws. I focus my practice on health care law, allowing me to stay up to date on all the issues that can impact physician-owned entities and all the legal strategies that are available to those looking to start new enterprises with physicians.
I represent and advise physicians and entrepreneurs who seek to enter into new business ventures such as:
- Imaging centers
- Pharmacy services
- Physician-owned distributors (PODs) of medical devices
The regulations that these and other physician-owned companies are subject to are supplemented by additional regulations when an entity is jointly owned by physicians and physician assistants (PAs). These regulations impose annual reporting requirements on the doctors and PAs who own these entities, set forth certain limitations regarding the percentage of ownership by PAs, and impose additional procedural and operational restrictions on the entity.

Laws regulating physician-PA joint ownership are recent developments; due to my focus on health care law, I am well versed in these regulations and other emerging topics that can affect a physician-owned entity. Examples are the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Texas Patient Solicitation Act.
