Public Health 
 
    §  4501. Medical referral service businesses prohibited. 1. No person,
  firm, partnership, association or  corporation,  or  agent  or  employee
  thereof,  shall  engage  in  for profit any business or service which in
  whole or in part includes the referral or recommendation of persons to a
  physician, dentist, hospital, health related facility, or dispensary for
  any form of medical or dental  care  or  treatment  of  any  ailment  or
  physical  condition.  The  imposition  of  a  fee or charge for any such
  referral or recommendation shall create a presumption that the  business
  or service is engaged in for profit.
    2.  No  physician,  dentist,  hospital,  health  related  facility  or
  dispensary shall enter into a contract or other  form  of  agreement  to
  accept  for  medical  or dental care or treatment any person referred or
  recommended for such care or treatment by a medical or  dental  referral
  service  business  located  in or doing business in another state if the
  medical or dental referral service business would  be  prohibited  under
  this  section  if the business were located in or doing business in this
  state.
