Abstract:     
Increasingly, more entrepreneurial physician specialists are organizing their practices in for-profit corporations and employing other physicians. Focusing on the example of neonatology, this article describes the prevailing business model of these for-profit medical specialty groups as controlling their employed physicians through restrictive employment contract provisions. This article examines how the prevailing business model of for-profit medical specialty groups for the employment of physicians enables them to eliminate competition for specific specialty services to the detriment of patients and consumers.
