New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) Health Care Conference
September 23, 2021
Speaker: Lourdes Martinez
Garfunkel Wild Partner Lourdes Martinez will present at the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) Health Care Conference on September 23, 2021.
Ms. Martinez‘s presentation, “Legal Update” will discuss the following. COVID-19 has profoundly challenged and changed the delivery of health care services in this country. It has also changed the legal landscape, with many policy initiatives that have been debated for decades now being enacted. This is true, in particular, for New York State residential health care facilities who are now faced with increased legislative oversight of their financial matters. For example, beginning in 2022, facilities will be required to spend a minimum of 70% of revenue on direct patient care. Other initiatives include the expansion of telehealth services, and the relaxation of laws and regulations governing the provision of hospital, physician, and other practitioner services. The government’s response to COVID-19 has also brought a rise in fraud schemes that exploit the public health emergency by diverting funds designed to provide health care entities with financial relief. These and other current developing issues facing health care providers will be among the topics presented.
