Safeguarding Ethical Health Care With Physician Lease Agreements

Physician lease agreements intersect with the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, highlighting the importance of legal counsel.

At Weiss Zarett Brofman Sonnenklar & Levy, P.C., our lawyers understand that grasping these lease arrangements transcends mere legalities. It is all about ensuring ethical health care practices. Drawing on our expertise in health care law since our founding in 2001, we’ve committed ourselves to delivering top-notch service and personalized attention to our clients across New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The Importance Of Physician Lease Agreements

Physician lease agreements go beyond simply leasing space. They act as legally binding contracts with significant rental amounts and regulatory implications, including:

  • Financial stability: Fixing rental rates based on fair market value for a defined period can help your medical practice have predictable costs.
  • Compliance with regulations: The federal Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) and state regulations impose stringent guidelines on financial transactions within medical practices, including rental charges.
  • Enhanced patient experience: The quality of the physical environment directly influences patient satisfaction and perception of your medical clinic practice.

Our lawyers can help you review the physician lease agreement to ensure it protects your medical practice.

Key Components Of Physician Lease Agreements

Unlike standard commercial leases, physician lease arrangements are complex lease forms with specific considerations. Some key components our lawyers can help you pay attention to are:

  • Office lease duration and renewal options
  • Maintenance and repair obligations
  • Use restrictions and compliance requirements
  • Termination and default provisions
  • Force Majeure clauses

The components of your lease agreement may vary based on your specific health care practice, and whether you intend to enter into an office lease in a multitenant building or want to rent an entire building.
