FTLF Partner Moderates AHLA Podcast on Long Term Care Facilities and the COVID-19 Provider Relief Fund

By Published On: June 8, 2020

FTLF Partner Susannah Vance Gopalan hosted an episode of the American Health Law Association’s podcast, Speaking of Health Law.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act created, and the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act augmented, a $175 billion Provider Relief Fund, to reimburse health care providers for certain health care related expenses or lost revenues attributable to the coronavirus. Long term care facilities have received funding under several Provider Relief Fund allocations.

In the podcast, “Strings Attached: Compliance for Long Term Care Facilities In Using Funds From the COVID-19 Provider Relief Fund,” Ms. Gopalan is joined by Harvey Tettlebaum of Husch Blackwell and Camille Lockhart of BKD to discuss how long term care facilities can ensure compliance in their use of Provider Relief Fund dollars. The podcast covers Provider Relief Fund reporting and audit requirements, and also examines financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the long term care sector.
