Svetlana (Lana) Ros, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., joined MDAdvantage, a medical professional liability insurance provider, and Elizabeth Lorell, Esq., of Gordon & Rees, Scully Mansukhani, LLP, on April 9 for a round table conference call to discuss the challenges physicians and practice managers have been facing and will continue to face due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“It’s really important to come together, virtually, as an industry as much as we possibly can and lean on each other for information and help during this trying time. It was my pleasure to share my knowledge and answer questions regarding the developing laws and regulations pertaining to the coronavirus crisis in the health care industry,” said Ros.
About the MDAdvantage COVID-19 Round Table
The purpose of the conference call was to clarify many of the new regulations put forth during the COVID-19 public health emergency affecting physicians and their health care practices. Discussion topics included the standards of care related to telemedicine, how to handle exposure to the coronavirus, and how staff layoffs would affect a practice, including from a loan standpoint. Frequently asked questions were also presented, and an open discussion was offered.
