Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide healthcare counsel with a review of the key legal and business issues involved with retail clinics. The panel will offer guidance on the formation, operation and regulation of retail clinics.


Retail clinics continue to expand nationwide. Physicians and hospitals once widely regarded retail clinics as a threat to their business models and risky for patients. However, opinion has shifted; new approaches are emerging as physicians, hospitals, health systems and insurers develop a variety of formal and informal relationships with retail clinics.

With the rise in healthcare consumerism and transparency, as well as the push to reduce costs while delivering appropriate care, retail clinics may provide attractive, opportunities for hospitals, physician groups, retailers, insurers and private investors. However, counsel must consider the legal and regulatory landscape before inking a deal.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines regulatory and licensing trends with respect to retail clinics and providers, and emerging relationships between physicians, hospitals, health systems and payers with retail clinics. The panel will discuss how third-party payers are incorporating retail clinics into their networks.
