Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Region 2 Annual Fall Institute

October 13, 2021


Speaker: Lourdes Martinez

Garfunkel Wild Partner/Director Lourdes Martinez will present at the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Region 2 Annual Fall Institute on October 13-15, 2021. 

Ms. Martinez’s session will be “The State of Emergency is Over – What Happens Next???”

Recently, many new laws, regulations and directives have been promulgated by both federal and state governments as a result of the pandemic.  Some of these new requirements stem from initiatives that have been debated for decades.  This session will focus on these new laws/regulations/directives and explore how they affect hospitals, nursing homes and other providers.  Topics we will cover include, but are not limited to: new staffing ratios, PPE inventor and infection control.  Additionally, the Federal gov-ernment has also been keeping busy, investigating fraud related to Provider Relief Fund payments and recently proposing to impose higher penalties on hospitals that do not publish their prices.  These and other current and developing issues facing health care providers will be among the topics presented.
