Finding What's Fair & Reasonable

A trusted leader in assessments of Fair Market Value & Reasonableness.

Integrated Healthcare Strategies, a division of Gallagher Benefit Services, Inc. is the preferred expert witness for fair market legal cases by law firms across the nation. We are routinely retained by health systems to provide litigation support and expert witness services. That's because we have completed more fair market value assessments on healthcare organizations than any other company in the nation.

Current regulatory requirements and IRS guidelines require that healthcare organizations establish compensation for physician financial arrangements that are deemed fair market value and are consistent with commercial reasonableness in areas such as cash compensation, benefits, medical directorships, call payments, professional services agreements and clinical co-management agreements. Our Physician Services experts have helped numerous healthcare organizations nationwide determine fair market value for all types of physician specialties.

Many healthcare organizations are at risk for significant fines and penalties because they have failed to ensure that their physician compensation agreements comply with all federal and state laws. They may even be at risk for criminal judgments. Our review process ensures that your current level of compensation is both reasonable and in compliance with federal Stark and Private Inurnment legislation.

Ownership of one of the largest databases on physician compensation in the industry, coupled with our vast experience working with thousands of hospitals on these issues, means you will not only have confidence that your practices are in line with today's "best practice" standards of operation, but also that your compensation plans will meet the tests of fair market value.
