COVID-19 Waivers Expiring: Act Now to Keep Provider’s License

Length: 60 Minutes Expert: Kevin Cripe, JD, MPA
Clear

On January 1, 2021, certain COVID-19 licensure waivers may be expiring and unless you comply with federal and state requirements, your provider could lose your ability to practice across state lines. If this happens, your practice’s revenue and license are at serious risk of being lost.

Loosened state requirements for providing both telehealth and in-person services to out-of-state patients during the COVID-19 pandemic are winding down or becoming more structured from regulatory agencies, and time is running out. You MUST MEET ALL licensing requirements and process steps, or you’ll forfeit your provider’s license in that state.

With every state doing its own thing, it’s impossible to keep up with all the different rules. But if you don’t act now, you will lose reimbursement for any services your physicians provided during the time when your license didn’t comply with the state’s laws.

That’s where healthcare attorney Kevin Cripe, JD, MPA, can help. During his training, Kevin will give you step-by-step practical advice on fulfilling all out-of-state licensing rules so your providers can keep seeing your patients − and getting paid.

Here are just a few of the critical COVID-19 licensing waiver questions you’ll receive answers to during this 60-minute online training session:

  • What physician licenses must you hold to practice in states outside your own?
  • How can you meet pre-licensing continuing education requirements?
  • When do you need to provide verbal or written consent prior to an out-of-state telehealth visit?
  • What paperwork and documentation must you file to continue practicing out of state?
  • How are your prescribing controlled substances rules limited for your out-of-state patients?
  • What specific information are you required to include on an informed consent?
  • Are your states extending temporary licenses for the duration of the public health emergency?
  • What’s the significance of Florida’s telehealth licensing rule and how does it impact your states?
  • When must you stop practicing if you’re an inactive physician called back to service for the pandemic?
  • And so much more!

Warning: Allowances that let your physicians provide services in other states during COVID-19 are ending — as soon as January 1 in some states. You must take action now, or all services you provided during the questionable period will not be payable — costing you money for services you already provided! By attending this online training, you’ll get the exact licensing steps you must take now, so you avoid your providers losing their licenses, as well as payment for services you provided, and long-term career damage.
