Bloomberg Law (6/9, Stein, Subscription Publication) reports, “The Trump administration is recommending health-care facilities provide non-emergency care in areas of the country that are in the second phase of their reopening plans.” The “recommendations were published Tuesday by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and focus on getting care for patients without access to telehealth, with serious underlying health conditions, or those at risk from complications without in-person care.” Moreover, the CMS “is recommending that patients who are undergoing a procedure or operation, including people giving birth, need to be tested for the coronavirus 24 hours before the procedure or should self-quarantine for 14 days ahead of time.”
