Good news for healthcare providers: New IRS guidelines give non-profit healthcare organizations greater flexibility to structure management contracts with private and for-profit entities.

Non-profit Healthcare organizations face restrictions in entering into management contracts with for-profit businesses. But the IRS has created a safe harbor which can allow 501(c)(3) tax-exempt healthcare organizations to enter into management contract agreements. The new IRS guidelines relax that federal regulation and give increased options to healthcare non-profits.
