I think things become much easier in the upcoming 1.6 services module.
This module allows you to place all the services for a specific
patient, and choose which ones to invoice.

Under this schema, it would be easy to customize it to do the following :
a) split the services in "n" invoices, to different parties
b) choose a percentage of the amount depending on the insurance
company and/or insurance plan

Just a couple of examples, but the idea of the services module was
giving more flexibility and create a mid-point that permits these type
of operations.

Regarding linking the patient with a specific company as an employee,
you can do it via

Patient -> Party -> Configuration -> Companies -> Employees

Hope it helps.
