This excerpt taken from the WBMD 10-Q filed May 11, 2009.
Charges from HLTH to WebMD:
Corporate Services:  We are charged a services fee (which we refer to as the Services Fee) for costs related to corporate services provided to us by HLTH. The services that HLTH provides include certain administrative services, including payroll, accounting, tax planning and compliance, employee benefit plans, legal matters and information processing. In addition, we reimburse HLTH for an allocated portion of certain expenses that HLTH incurs for outside services and similar items, including insurance fees, outside personnel, facilities costs, professional fees, software maintenance fees and telecommunications costs. HLTH has agreed to make the services available to us for up to five years following the IPO. These expense allocations were determined on a basis that we and HLTH consider to be a reasonable assessment of the cost of providing these services, exclusive of any profit margin. The basis we and HLTH used to determine these expense allocations required management to make certain judgments and assumptions. The Services Fee is reflected in general and administrative expense within our consolidated statements of operations.
Healthcare Expense:  We are charged for our employees’ participation in HLTH’s healthcare plans. Healthcare expense is charged based on the number of our total employees and reflects HLTH’s average cost of these benefits per employee. Healthcare expense is reflected in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations in the same expense captions as the related salary costs of those employees.
Stock-Based Compensation Expense:  Stock-based compensation expense is related to stock option issuances and restricted stock awards of HLTH Common Stock that have been granted to certain of our employees. Stock-based compensation expense is allocated on a specific employee identification basis. The expense is reflected in our consolidated statements of operations in the same expense captions as the related salary costs of those employees. The allocation of stock-based compensation expense related to HLTH Common Stock is recorded as a capital contribution in additional paid-in capital.
The following table summarizes the allocations reflected in our consolidated financial statements:
