11:15-12:15- Key Issues for Providers in COVID-19 and Other Service Payment and Coverage Disputes - Clay Countryman

Federal legislation and regulatory guidance, such as the CARES Act, have significantly expanded access and coverage for testing and treatment of COVID-19.  Physicians face a significant risk in responding to a potential wave coming of reimbursement and coverage disputes related to these expanded efforts.  Payment disputes are likely to result from indirect affects such as driving patients to out-of-network care due to in-network capacity limitations.  This presentation will discuss provider-payment disputes related to the expansion of treatment of COVID-19, and other payment issues facing providers such as prompt payment requirements, balanced billing and case examples.
