There is nothing more unique and valuable in American health care than well-governed and well-managed nonprofit organizations working together to meet community needs. Hospitals, integrated health systems, health plans and trade associations fulfill their mission every day, meeting the challenges they face, to deliver high quality, accessible, and affordable care. Our attorneys understand the legal and political environment in which health care organizations operate every day, and can help ensure that you meet community benefit, not-for-profit, and other governmental expectations, while avoiding risks posed by inurement, prohibited private benefit, or unwanted scrutiny from the Internal Revenue Service, state nonprofit authorities, and other health care stakeholders.
Whether you need help evaluating or structuring an affiliation or joint venture, responding to an IRS examination or compliance check, or resolving a dispute through IRS Appeals or in Tax Court, our attorneys are familiar with the issues involved. Recent engagements reflect the importance of physician integration and compensation, helping governance and compensation committees fulfill fiduciary and federal tax obligations, and bringing new provider alignments to fruition. We are also experienced with transactions involving for-profit partners and how to manage the risks of excess benefits transaction exposure.
