Seminar for Maryland Physicians: What’s New & What’s Old is New

Thursday, June 16, 2022
5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Sheraton Baltimore North

Towson, MD

There is no fee for this seminar, but registration is required because space is limited. Please register no later than Monday, June 6, 2022. Please clickhere to register.

The Maryland General Assembly was busy again this year, and there are new Maryland laws that will affect how Maryland physicians will be paid. For example, one can expect:

  1. Physician networks to pay bonuses to members for referring patients to high quality and low cost providers;
  2. Commercial health insurers offering groups of doctors the opportunity to assume risk; and
  3. Self-insured employer health plans paying more doctors on a capitated basis.

Also, new physician employers are entering the Maryland market, and existing Maryland employers are modifying their employment agreements. Therefore, it is a good time to review the nuances of physician employment agreements.


If you attend this seminar, you will learn the answers to these questions and more:

  • What laws did the Maryland General Assembly pass in 2022 that impact how payors can pay Maryland doctors?
  • What is Maryland’s new Paid Family Leave Law all about?
  • Are non-compete provisions still enforceable in the District of Columbia?
  • Are there new reasons to avoid arbitration provisions?
  • What are the significant differences among, and the key negotiating strategies for, physician employment agreements with private equity companies, hospitals and private groups?
