I understand that certain types of business organizations

I understand that certain types of business organizations like corporations or LLCs provide the business 'operators' with certain protections such as in the event of being sued, whereas a sole proprietor puts personal assets at risk. In Kentucky, I've noticed that some professionals like doctors and attorneys are listed with the Secretary of State's office with an LLC or PLLC. But many aren't. So how would an attorney or doctor with a private practice- especially one operating a business with a name other than their personal name, be identified, so to speak, if they aren't registered with the Secretary of State which would be a requirement if they were an LLC, PLLC or corporation, etc. ? Would they be considered sole proprietors ?

I have a question regarding a business formation. There are three of us trying to form a business. 2 are licensed chiropractors, one is not. Being licensed I know we have to form a PLLC, but if we form a PLLC all owners have to be licensed. Is there any way to have all three of us be owners? Whether by creating an LLC as an umbrella company and then have the licensed chiros open the franchises? Would that work? Or could we file as a corporation? Would that allow the three of us to be owners even though 2 are licensed?

I have questions regarding a possible independent contractor

I have questions regarding a possible independent contractor opportunity with a NPO organization where the goal is to bring mental healthcare and acupuncture together to treat both body and mind. I am an acupuncturist in Washington state. The question I have is about the setup they have of payment flow and whether it falls under the Stark/anti-kickback issue. I will be independent contractor in private practice, affiliated with them (same building, different office). Payments, scheduling, accounting, insurance billing will be handled by them. Medical files will be kept separately in my own office with my own key (file cabinet). Patients will pay the organization. I will keep a percentage of the collected fee through my service (the blank contract they gave me reads "Contractor agrees to pay the Corporation --% of Contractor's collected fee", defined as actual collected fee by insurance companies and/or client. I suppose to cover overhead and use of their staff and office equipment. not the clinic equipment. I need to supply my own clinic items). I have not signed the contract and we are still in the process of negotiating.I can see how that's "fee-splitting", but how would that be a "kickback"? If basically what they keep is for administrative and other overhead costs?
