Physician Compensation, Design and Fair Market Value

Count on our objective, data-centric support to ensure that your organization's compensation arrangements are designed to be reasonable and consistent with physician fair market value and commercial reasonableness standards.

Your Issues, OUR Insight

More than ever, health care organizations are providing compensation for a wide range of physician services – from employed physicians and medical directorships to on-call pay and independent medical group contracts. At the same time, the regulatory scrutiny of these arrangements is increasing.

With more than 20 years of pioneering leadership in physician compensation, SullivanCotter brings extensive, independent experience reviewing and evaluating physician compensation arrangements for fair market value and commercial reasonableness. Our Consultants are physician compensation experts, and many focus solely on physician compensation matters.

Comprehensive Fair Market Value Assessment and data that supports decisions

SullivanCotter works with clients to evaluate the fair market value and commercial reasonableness of a wide range of physician compensation issues, from individual physician and physician group agreements to enterprise-wide reviews of physician compensation levels. Based on our deep experience, we have developed specific metrics that identify potential organizational risks related to physician compensation. And while clients rely on this independent insight to ensure compliance, they also gain the added benefit of improving risk management.

Our unmatched data resources include commercially available sources, but go further to include timely proprietary survey data on all types of physician compensation arrangements, as well as hard-to-find on-call pay and administrative services compensation data.

SullivanCotter also works with organizations to develop and implement best practices for reviewing physician compensation arrangements.

To help organizations navigate the changing complexities of physician compensation, SullivanCotter also provides Physician Compensation Training Modules that can be tailored to your organization. Our Consultants deliver the training, ensuring that clients achieve a sound understanding of physician market survey data and its methodologies for ongoing compliance with fair market value standards.
