Abstract

Exclusive contracts between hospitals and physicians are common. In most instances they raise no anticompetitive concerns. However, especially in rural markets, exclusive contracts may be used to foreclose actual and potential competitors and thereby decrease competition. The courts should weigh the benefits and costs of exclusive contracts in these areas. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
