COVID-19 is creating challenges for all hospitals and healthcare providers, but particularly those that were already struggling. Most hospitals, and notably those that serve the social safety net, are facing an immediate increase in costs for staff and supplies to meet the demands of the expected surge of COVID-19 patients, as well as the simultaneous possibility of declining revenue due to delay or cancellation of revenue-generating elective services. The panelists on this webinar will discuss operational, contracting, compliance and transactional questions that may come before in-house counsel in severely distressed hospitals, both generally and in the context of the current COVID-19 public health emergency. The session will include discussion of current and newly proposed emergency laws and regulations affecting service obligations, reimbursements, and rights and duties of hospitals, and how these may particularly impact public, not-for-profit, rural, and other types safety net providers.
