Over the course of the next few months, our healthcare legal team will provide a periodic summary of issues impacting healthcare entities and providers. The first topics in the series will focus on changes made in the 2009 Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment Systems Rule and in the 2009 Physician Fee Schedule. These topics will include: "Anti-Markup Rule for Diagnostic Tests," "IDTF Overview," "Under Arrangement Transactions," "Equipment and Space Agreements," "Physician Recruitment" and "Percentage Based Compensation."
