HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- OCTOBER 5, 2020 -- WASHINGTON DC: Tomorrow, please join AHP for a webinar on Pandemic Flexibilities in Long-Term Care.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed both new and longstanding needs of long-term care patients. Congress and the administration modified over 200 Medicare regulations, which has afforded response flexibility to providers, Medicare Advantage plans, and Part D plans. But how do these flexibilities impact the long-term care sector? Experts will overview the recent changes, remaining gaps, and benefits and risks to long-term care patients, caregivers, providers, and payers. Panelists will discuss whether similar actions should be replicated in future public health emergencies and highlight policy options to bolster the long-term care system moving forward.
