The Colorado Medical Society and other partners in the House of Medicine urged the governor to expand liability protections for Colorado health care professionals in an April 3 letter. In brief summary, for the duration of this public health emergency, CMS asks the governor to extend governmental immunity for the provision of care for COVID-19 cases, expand liability protections for providers for any service they provide as a direct result of the pandemic, allow physicians to supervise a greater number of other health professionals, including remotely; and to rescind any provision in any medical malpractice policy that may prevent insurance coverage of a provider’s work responding to the COVID-19 emergency in another work.
