What is a Management Services Organization?
An MSO provides non-clinical services to medical practices, ambulatory care facilities or other healthcare providers. These services can vary, but in Texas and in other states they typically include:
- AP- Accounts Receivable
- EMR companies
- Revenue Cycle management
- Credentialing companies
- IT Services
- Non-clinical staff members
- Human Resources
Why form a Management Services Organization?
An MSO is the only way to safely grant non-physicians/providers an opportunity to participate in a healthcare business that is governed by a statue or state licensure law. Many of these state laws would otherwise ban non-clinicians or certain providers from owning a business. Further, MSO’s are state specific and the fees are determined by state statutes NOT just the agreements between the parties.
