This CLE webinar will guide healthcare counsel on preparing for the end of the public health emergency (PHE). The panel will review the waivers and modifications put in place in light of the PHE. The panel will discuss the key considerations that healthcare organizations need to weigh when they address the unwinding of the policy changes made due to the waivers and modifications. The panel will also discuss the steps healthcare organizations should be taking now in anticipation of the waivers and modifications going away.

Description

Recently, CMS (March 2022) and the FDA (December 2021) put out guidance related to actions that should be taken and key considerations for when the PHE ends. State Medicaid agencies have received guidance for addressing eligibility redeterminations. It is expected that the end of the PHE and unwinding of the various waivers could result in 15 million people losing their Medicaid coverage.

Many of the waivers and modifications to Stark Law, HIPAA, Medicare, and other law requirements will come to an end and healthcare providers and organizations must be prepared to be compliant with the requirements. This means that organizations will need to recall the extent of the changes put in place because of the PHE. Failing to remember what procedural modifications were put into place would make unwinding changes very difficult.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys reviews the waivers and modifications put in place in light of the PHE. The panel will discuss the key considerations that healthcare organizations need to review when they address the unwinding of the policy changes due to the waivers and modifications. The panel will also discuss the steps healthcare organizations should be taking now in anticipation of the waivers and modifications going away.
