(i) Physicians' services performed by physicians.

(ii) Laboratory, x-ray, emergency, and preventive services.

(iii) Out-of-area coverage.

(iv) Inpatient hospital services.

(2) Exception for Medicaid prepayment risk contracts. An entity that had, before 1970, a Medicaid prepayment risk contract that did not include provision of inpatient hospital services is not required to provide those services.

(c)Compensation for services. The entity receives compensation (except for deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments) for the health care services it provides to enrollees on a periodic, prepaid capitation basis regardless of the frequency, extent, or kind of services provided to any enrollee.

(d)Source of physicians' services. The entity provides physicians' services primarily through -
