I am wondering if the following set up is possible. My small group is currently providing inpatient/ED consult services as independent contractor. Now the hospital is asking to set up the outpatient clinic. The hospital will provide EMR, offices, medical staff and scheduling. We just have to make sure we get to collect full reimbursements for all procedures done in the clinic. For this purpose we will be using our own techs and machines. Do you think this is reasonable or should we pay the office rent to avoid the hospital from claiming facility fees? How are other private neurology groups doing in symbiotic relationship with hospitals?
