Guidelines and Reminders
(a) your reimbursement rates or any other data that might bear on the price you are paid for your services;
(b) raising, lowering, or ‘stabilizing’ your fees;
(c) what constitutes a fair profit level or margin level;
(d) the allocation of markets, territories, or patients;
For example, any agreement to ‘honor,’ ‘protect,’ or ‘avoid invading’ one another’s geographic areas, practice specialties, or patient lists would violate the law
(e) whether other physicians should or should not deal with certain persons or entities
For example, any agreement among physicians not employed by the hospital not to cover call unless paid to do so, any agreement among non-employed physicians to strike or not to accept certain tasks, or any agreement not to contract with a specific payor, would violate the law.
