An agreement among physicians may contain a covenant not to compete, under which a physician who leaves the group practice may be compelled to pay damages if he or she solicits patients who are former or prospective patients of the group practice. The bill makes an exception in the case of patients with a rare disorder, as determined in accordance with nationally recognized criteria, who would otherwise not have ready access to a physician with the necessary expertise to treat the disorder.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
