HealthLaw HotSpot: Structuring DSO/MSO Healthcare Ventures and Practice Acquisitions
Many states require medical, dental and other types of practices to be owned by licensed health care providers. However, certain business structures, including using a Management Service Organization (MSO) or Dental Service Organization (DSO), can allow for non-physicians to legally acquire and operate healthcare practices, and to benefit financially. In this episode host Ericka Adler, Roetzel Health Law Practice Group Leader, and guest Larry Elisco, a partner in Wipfli LLP’s healthcare practice, provide insight for when to use and how to structure an MSO or DSO arrangement. They also discuss what to include in drafting a clear and legally compliant management agreement and what to consider when setting the management fees.
