Judge rules businesses can sue insurers for coronavirus losses
The coronavirus has upended lives and businesses around the globe. From business interruption and supply chain disruption to event and travel cancellations, we are only just seeing the beginning stages of COVID-19's impact. These articles provide valuable insights on insurance coverage, preparation tips and more to help individuals and businesses reduce exposures as the virus spreads.
The novel coronavirus pandemic continues to devastate the nation’s economy, and the healthcare sector is not immune. Hospital emergency departments and intensive care units in hotspot regions are deluged with critically ill patients, while many routine hospital services have been curtailed or suspended so staff and urgently needed supplies can be reserved for treatment of COVID-19 patients.
Elective care has been essentially eliminated. Hospital and outside physician practices — including primary and specialty offices — have also been disrupted. Chiropractic, physical therapy and rehabilitative practices have either closed completely or are barely operational. Non-essential medical practices have closed or are operating with skeleton crews, reduced hours and seeing few patients. These changes are also having an impact on physician compensation.
