Reopening Your Practice Post COVID-19


Physicians and their practices are facing difficult challenges as the COVID-19 Pandemic shifts gears from emergency closures to reopening and managing ongoing business operations. Physician practices must consider evolving restrictions, recommendations and various agency guidance documents in determining how best to deliver healthcare services in a safe environment for their patients, employees and their communities.

To support our physician members and their practices, the Chicago Medical Society has worked with the law firms of Breazeale, Sachse & Wilson, L.L.P. and the Health Law Partners, P.C., to develop a practical COVID-19 Toolkit of up-to-date, concise, issue-focused resources to support CMS members in reopening and/or continuing operations of their medical practices. We are also hosting this webinar to walk you through the kit and answer all your questions. The toolkit will be emailed to registrants before the webinar takes place.

The COVID-19 Toolkit is a compendium of COVID-19 policies and procedures, checklists, and consent and waiver forms, categorized as follows:
--Compliance with state and federal governmental directives and guidance.
--Implementing safety measures for patients and visitors to physician practices
--Providing a framework for workplace safety for clinicians and staff.
--Addressing compliance with new federal statutory requirements (e.g., The Families First Coronavirus Response Act).
--Management and documentation to comply with requirements related to receipt of Federal relief funds and assistance.
--COVID-19 Pandemic Policies and Forms.
--Employment Policies and Procedures Related to COVID-19.
--Financial Compliance and Management of Relief Funds/Loans.

Our tool kit is also a living document that will be updated so that you and your practice can manage in these challenging times. We hope this will be an invaluable resource for you and your practice.
