    5         (n) Entities that are owned by a corporation that has $250
    6  million or more in total annual sales of health care services
    7  provided by licensed health care practitioners if one or more of
    8  the owners of the entity is a health care practitioner who is

   10  business activities of the entity, and is legally responsible
   11  for the entity’s compliance with state law for purposes of this
   12  section.
   13         (o) Entities that employ 50 or more health care
   14  practitioners who are licensed under chapter 458 or chapter 459
   15  if the billing for medical services is under a single corporate
   16  tax identification number. The application for exemption under
   17  this paragraph must contain information that includes the name,
   18  residence address, business address, and telephone number of the
   19  entity that owns the practice; a complete list of the names and
   20  contact information of all the officers and directors of the
   21  entity; the name, residence address, business address, and

   24  the corporate tax identification number of the entity seeking an
   25  exemption; a listing of health care services to be provided by
   26  the entity at the health care clinics owned or operated by the
   27  entity; and a certified statement prepared by an independent
   28  certified public accountant which states that the entity and the
   29  health care clinics owned or operated by the entity have not
   30  received payment for health care services under insurance

   34  insurance coverage for personal injury protection, the agency
   35  may deny or revoke the exemption from licensure under this
   36  paragraph.
