PHYSICIANS ADVOCACY INSTITUTE PUBLISHES REGULATORY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19 FINANCIAL RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO PHYSICIANS

The Physicians Advocacy Institute (PAI) has published a Regulatory Update providing an overview of the COVID-19-related financial resources that have been made available for physician practices under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. In addition, PAI has partnered with Healthsperien to provide real-time policy updates and analysis regarding both financial support for physician practices and relief from unnecessary regulatory burdens during the novel coronavirus crisis. It is anticipated that Congress will make additional funds available for which physicians will be eligible in the near future. 

PAI is a 501(c)(6) organization that was founded under the terms of a settlement agreement reached with Prudential in class action multidistrict litigation filed on behalf of physicians and nineteen state and county medical societies against several of the nation’s large for-profit health insurers. Joe Whatley, Edith Kallas, and other attorneys with Whatley Kallas, LLP represented the physician class and the medical societies in the MDL litigation and negotiated the settlement agreement that resulted in the creation of PAI.
