HSR-016: Protecting the Right of Group Practices to Refer to Facilities in Which They Have an Investment Interest

 
Protecting the Right of Group Practices to Refer to Facilities in Which They Have an Investment Interest: The Wisconsin Medical Society believes in protecting

  • The ability of physicians in groups to refer patients for other services provided within the group (in any legislation proposed to regulate physician investment in and referral to health care facilities and services).
  • The ability of group practices to work jointly with other entities to provide services cost-effectively, provided that the individual referring physician is not directly compensated for making the referral. (HOD, 0412)
