Practicing medicine in a beauty parlor?

If I perform Botox injections in a salon or spa, can I compensate the owner by giving him a percentage of the revenue?

Q. If I perform Botox injections in a salon or spa, can I compensate the owner by giving him a percentage of the revenue?

A. Our advice is to steer clear of this sort of arrangement. For one thing, it might violate some states' laws prohibiting fee splitting or kickbacks for referrals. Or it might be viewed as the corporate practice of medicine-an arrangement where a nonlicensed entity (the spa) controls aspects of medical decision-making or receives fees for services performed by doctors. This is considered illegal in most states.
