COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on physician practices in 2020, and these impacts are likely to continue through at least the first half of 2021. This presentation will review the events of the past nine months to help practices understand how the situation has evolved over time and what the evolving circumstances may mean for the coming year. Key topics explored will include (i) what did we know about COVID-19 when the pandemic began and how has our knowledge changed, (ii) the current status of the pandemic, (iii) COVID-19’s impact on independent physician practices, (iv) and actions taken by the Federal and State governments to help practices handle the challenges they have faced.
