Curi’s webinar series continues next Thursday, May 7, with “Keeping the Doors Open in a Pandemic: Practice Financing and Relief Funds.” Curi’s Senior Vice President of Health Policy, Sam Cohen, and our Senior Vice President of Finance, Ben Remke, will discuss how practices facing COVID-based financial hardship can access funds from federal initiatives such as the Paycheck Protection Program and the Main Street Lending Program. You can register for the webinar here. A link to yesterday’s webinar, “Planning for the Future While Living in the Present: Managing Your Practice’s Retirement Plan During COVID-19,” is available here.
All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
