We are providing guidance on numerous questions challenging healthcare professionals in their efforts to respond to their patients’ needs, including:
- What are the requirements and legal concerns for re-opening my practice?
- How to provide telemedicine to serve patients during the coronavirus outbreak?
- How do the HIPAA rules impact the practice of medicine in novel ways during the coronavirus outbreak?
- What are the out-of-state licensing rules applicable to treatment during the coronavirus outbreak?
- How will Medicare and Medicaid reimburse for treatment during the coronavirus outbreak? How are commercial payors reimbursing? What will patients be required to pay?
- What funding sources are available to healthcare providers affected by COVID-19?
- What are the requirements for compliance with the HHS Provider Relief Fund Terms and Conditions?
- How do the OIG waivers available during COVID-19 affect my practice?
