Legal Issues for Idaho Healthcare Providers – Employee vaccination policies, COVID leave, and the Idaho Patient Act

Register in advance for this webinar

Please join Hawley Troxell employment and healthcare attorneys for this complimentary webinar focusing on legal issues faced by healthcare employers. This live webinar will address the following issues:

Vaccine Preparations: It appears that COVID-19 vaccines will be approved soon and that they will be made available to healthcare workers shortly after approval. Those developments create several legal questions, including whether healthcare employers can (or should) require their employees to be vaccinated. We will answer those questions and explain options for implementing appropriate and legally compliant vaccination policies.

COVID-19 Employee Leave: Department of Labor regulations initially provided that all employees of healthcare facilities were exempt from the paid leave provisions in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. As a result of lawsuits challenging that exemption, the Department of Labor has now revised its regulations to provide that, although clinical employees are still exempt, many non-clinical employees may be entitled to paid leave for reasons related to COVID-19. We will explain the new regulations and provide practical guidance and strategies for addressing healthcare employee requests for leave for reasons related to COVID-19.

Idaho Patient Act: Effective January 1, 2021, Idaho law will require health care providers to follow certain steps before resorting to legal action to collect amounts owed from patients. These steps include new deadlines for billing the patient’s insurance provider, requirements to send detailed notices to patients about the bills they will receive from treatment received at practices and facilities, and timelines before a practice or facility can charge interest or resort to legal action. This webinar will discuss those steps, as well as best practices for maintaining the ability to collect unpaid amounts from patients.

About the presenters:

John Ashby is the chair of Hawley Troxell’s employment law practice group. His practice is dedicated to representing employers on employment law issues and defending them against employee legal claims. John has particular expertise in advising and defending employers in the healthcare industry and advising all employers on COVID-19 protocols

Tom Mortell leads Hawley Troxell’s health law practice group. His practice focuses on advising hospitals on all aspects of health care law, including regulatory compliance (HIPAA, Stark, Anti-kickback statute, and EMTALA), business transactions and contracts, physician integration, compliance, board governance and repayment/recoupment issues.

If you are unable to attend this webinar but would still like to receive the recording, please register and you will receive the recording and material via email the day after the webinar.
