AAEM Signs on to AMA Letter: Coronavirus Provider Protection Act
AAEM Signs on to a joint letter urging Congress to include the targeted and limited liability protections in bipartisan bill, H.R. 7059, the "Coronavirus Provider Protection Act."
"As physicians and other health care professionals, and the facilities in which they provide their services, continue their heroic efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 while caring for COVID-19 patients as well as meeting the needs of other patients, they will remain vulnerable to the threat of unwarranted and unfair lawsuits. We therefore strongly urge Congress to consider targeted and limited liability protections for physicians, other health care professionals, and the facilities in which they practice as they continue their efforts to treat COVID-19 under unprecedented conditions."
