After two long years, we may be nearing the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). But with the end of the PHE comes the end of waivers and flexibilities intended to ensure access and reduce burden during the pandemic. During this webinar, PYA Principal Martie Ross reviewed those waivers and discussed how providers should be preparing for the return to normal operations (or the new normal). The webinar covered the following:
- Telehealth and Virtual Services
- Scope of PHE waiver
- Impact of 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule (expanded telehealth services)
- Impact of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (tele-behavioral health services)
- Impact of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022 (151-day post-PHE waiver extension)
- Agency enforcement discretion (licensure, waiver of co-payments, HIPAA compliance)
- Hospital Capacity
- Temporary sites
- Swing beds
- Acute Hospital Care at Home Program
- Paperwork Reduction and Other Regulatory Flexibilities
- Impact of Medicaid Disenrollment
The one-hour complimentary webinar took place on March 23, 2022. Attendees of this webinar were eligible for 1 CPE* credit in Specialized Knowledge. No CPE credit is available for viewing the on-demand webinar.
This webinar was part of PYA’s twice-monthly “Healthcare Regulatory Roundup” series in which experts from across the firm provide practical insights on the latest regulatory developments.
