(3) The arbitration agreement in question was not in itself unscrupulous. [136] [126] Beynon v. Garden Grove Med. Group, 100 Cal. App.3d 698, 161 Cal. The rptr. 146 (1980) concerned a contract signed in 1974 before the entry into force of Section 1295. It is interesting to note that the public policy that favours arbitration and the finality of arbitration seem to control here, given that the court could have invalidated the entire contract and would have required standard judicial procedures. Lee, of the Center for Health Care Rights, says patients should not agree to arbitration until a problem arises. [120] Id.

at 481-83, 49 Cal. Rptr.2d at 673-74. See also Cal. Civ. Proc. Code 1295 (c) specifying that arbitration arrangements apply to medical care in an open account. In principle, these agreements created a mechanism for doctors, healthcare providers and clinics to avoid standard litigation in the event of a treatment error. The law establishes a number of requirements that must be strictly adhered to in order for the agreement to be binding.5 (1) that the evidence supported the finding that the CMO had fraudulently induced the participant to accept arbitration proceedings; (5) not to require staff members to pay undue costs or arbitrator fees or expenses as a precondition for access to arbitration. The medical clinic must be fully in the possession and control of a doctor or doctor (a layman cannot own a clinic).

See Business and Professions Code Sections 2400 – 2417 and Corporations Code Sections 13400 – 13410 for requirements regarding the business structures to be used (wholly-owned, professional partnerships and professional enterprises). If the doctor/owner practices under a name other than his own name (for example. B a clinic name such as “Sun Valley Medical Clinic”), the physician must obtain a Fictitious Permit (FNP) name from the Medical Board. This is separate from any fictitious business names required by city or district governments. . . .
