Webinar Overview

Many providers are considering the sale of their practice for a variety of reasons, including changes in the regulatory landscape and reimbursement challenges. Regardless of the reason, health care providers interested in selling their practice must take steps to prepare for the sale in order to prevent crossing any lines with applicable laws and regulations.

Among the many legal considerations involved in the sale of a physician practice are fee splitting and kickback issues, due diligence, protection of patient protected health information, third-party contract assignments, and tax considerations.

The presentation will include discussion of the following topics:

  • What are the key legal and business concerns for providers considering the sale of their practice?
  • What nuances should sellers be aware of with respect to valuations in light of state and federal fraud and abuse laws?
  • What tax implications will sale of a practice have for the seller?
  • The growing role of private equity in practice acquisitions.


We have applied for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit for this program in Iowa and Minnesota. Please contact Greta Larson at if you are an attorney licensed in another state and would like information about obtaining CLE accreditation. We have also applied for Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) credits. Webinar participants will be notified of accreditation upon program approval of CLE and HCCA credits (typically three or four weeks following the webinar).
