A Resource For Physicians, Entrepreneurs And Health Care Entities
At our firm, we 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. Attorney Alejandro Mora focuses his practice on health care law, allowing him to stay up to date on all of the issues that can impact physician-owned entities and all of the legal strategies that are available to those looking to start a new enterprise with a physician.
Under attorney Mora’s guidance, our legal team routinely represents and advises 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. These regulations impose annual reporting requirements on the doctors and PAs who own these entities, set forth certain limitations regarding percentage of ownership by physician assistants, and impose additional procedural and operational restrictions on the entity.
Laws regulating physician/physician assistant joint ownership are recent developments; due to our focus on health care law, we are 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.
