The FTC has proposed a rule which would ban employers from using non-compete clauses in employment contracts. Additionally, it would require employers to rescind any existing contract clauses. Expect push-back. In the meantime, the period for making comments is 60 days from the posting of the proposed rule.
Therefore, if adopted, this rule would prevent health providers from requiring that employees or contractors sign non-competes, You will also have to inform any employers or contractors who have signed non-competes that the non-competes are no longer binding.
