Preparing for the End of the Public Health Emergency: Stark, HIPAA, Medicare, and Other Regulatory Compliance
McDonald Hopkins' Rick Hindmand will be speaking as part of a panel during this virtual event presented by Strafford.
The White House announced that the public health emergency will end on May 11, 2023, bringing an end to some of the regulatory flexibility provided by the federal government. As a result, healthcare providers and companies need to be prepared for the end of the waivers and changes as regulations and requirements revert to what they were pre-pandemic.
HHS has warned providers that most of the PHE waivers will end upon termination of the PHE or soon thereafter and providers should prepare now for a return to normal standards. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and other agencies published guidance summarizing the COVID-19 waivers, which guidance serves as a roadmap for compliance as the PHE ends. While each healthcare facility has unique challenges, this guidance should prove helpful in navigating the process of preparing for the end of the PHE.
Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys provides a brief overview of the waivers and modifications that were prompted by the PHE. The panel will discuss what healthcare organizations need to consider as they begin unwinding changes made due to the waivers and modifications. The panel will review the CMS guidance that serves as a roadmap for compliance as the PHE ends. The panel will offer best practices for preparing for the end of the PHE and the changes it will bring.
