MCMS Benefit


egal triage is a local program that
assists members of the Montgomery
County Medical Society in assessing
their need for legal services in areas related
to the business of medical practice (i.e.,
excludes medical malpractice related
matters). The service consists of an initial
telephone consultation for members
without charge by Attorney Karen E.
Davidson, an experienced healthcare lawyer who will assist
MCMS members in assessing their legal needs.
Attorney Davidson has been providing legal guidance in
health law for more than 20 years. She has represented healthcare
providers including physicians/groups practices, non-profit
foundations, hospital/health systems, billing companies and
others that do business in the healthcare market.
Ms. Davidson is offering members a free initial telephone
consultation. Types of matters that may need legal consultation
by members include:
* Sale of your medical practice to a hospital/health system,
and/or negotiation of a related employment agreement
* Internal practice arrangements related to ownership and/or
* Renewal of hospital/health system employment agreements
and concerns related to revised compensation formulas
* Billing, coding or other reimbursement matters related to
third party payers including contract negotiation, repayments,
* Review and analysis of accountable care organization
* Separation and/or medical practice retirement/departure
* Start-up of medical practice, or
* HIPAA breach issues and/or compliance issues/concerns

Within the last year, several of these issues have come before
Ms. Davidson by healthcare providers. Once the legal triage
consultation has been completed, MCMS members can seek
outside counsel or utilize the services of Ms. Davidson. If
additional services are provided by Ms. Davidson, MCMS
members will receive a discount on her then applicable hourly
rate. You can reach Ms. Davidson at her Conshohocken office,

In addition to offering this service to MCMS members,

matters related to the business of healthcare through
this publication, MCMS Physician. If there is a healthcare
related topic you would like addressed, send ideas
