Telehealth: Where We Were, Where We Are, And Where We Are Headed (06/02/2020)

Program Number: 30148 Presenter: Jody Erdfarb, Esq., Laura Koman, Esq., Sunny J. Levine, Esq., Tamara Alexander Lynch, Esq.

Over the last few years, patients and providers have continued to turn to telehealth as a convenient and efficient health care delivery model. However, long-standing legal barriers—including limitations and restrictions on reimbursement, technology options, and multijurisdictional practice capabilities—have inhibited widespread adoption. During the COVID-19 pandemic, federal and state authorities have relaxed many of the legal restrictions impacting telehealth and as a result, there has been a significant increase in telehealth utilization for both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 services. In this webinar, we will review the legal issues confronted by telehealth providers, before, during and after the COVID-19 crisis. Attendees will learn about: • obstacles to multijurisdictional practice (licensing, telehealth practice standards) • common corporate structuring options • fraud and abuse pitfalls • reimbursement mechanisms • COVID-19 temporary changes

Shadow Insurance in A COVID-19 Era: A Federal/State Perspective on Negligence and Corporate Formalities (05/11/2020)

Program Number: 30129 Presenter: Samuel A. Blaustein, Raymond Dowd, Esq.

The McCarran-Ferguson Act of 1945 exempted the insurance industry from most federal regulation. With the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999, non-insurance company money and unlicensed third party players started flowing into the insurance industry at an unprecedented rate. A 2013 New York Department of Financial Services Report documented the phenomenon of “shadow insurance” due to a regulatory “race to the bottom” among states, permitting insurance companies to operate with insufficient reserves. Can these companies be made to pay? Corporate decisionmakers now ask: How do I get my “captive” insurance program to pay? Who sold me this worthless policy? How do I liberate cash for my balance sheet? Topics covered: insurance law basics, scrubbing down policies, spotting problems in corporate formalities, moving up the reinsurance food chain. Who should attend: those working with business management to understand their rights, how to hold producers to account where coverage is flawed and to recoup

Program Number: 30126 Presenter: Keith M. Aurzada, Esq., Jorge I. Gutierrez, Esq.

Many U.S. producers, midstream companies and oil field service companies will not survive the current unprecedented downturn. Every upstream and midstream player, and their counsel, must prepare now for the likelihood that one or more counterparties will seek bankruptcy protection. This includes analyzing key terms of midstream agreements to determine whether the contracts are subject to rejection in bankruptcy; identifying whether any material agreements create beneficial consensual liens, evaluating the legal considerations before pursuing such liens, and following the proper steps to perfect the liens; assessing the legal implications of seeking a judgment lien and how to perfect it; and determining whether you may seek a mineral lien, as well as ensuring you comply with strict notice and process for perfecting such a mineral lien.

Program Number: 30117 Presenter: Massimo F. D'Angelo, Esq.

The lecture will open with a brief synopsis of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the New York business closures adopted by Governor Cuomo’s decrees, inter alia, banning non-essential businesses and travel, as well as public gatherings to combat the spread of the contagion. I will then discuss how these widespread governmentally mandated business closures in the wake of COVID-19 caused severe economic disaster, including a brief discussion comparing the eerily similar government regulations enacted by New York a century ago to stop the transmission of the 1918 Spanish Flu. The main body of the lecture will revolve around an analysis of future COVID-19 force majeure cases in support of nonperformance under commercial contracts and business interruption claims. This will include a discussion on the role of the courts in determining these substantive issues in the event that the Legislature fails to step in to provide clarity. Since the resolution of these

COVID-19: Contract Defaults and Insurance for Lost Income (04/20/2020)

Program Number: 30109 Presenter: John R. Sigety, Esq., Ashley Veitenheimer, Esq., Donald A. Waltz, Esq.

The coronavirus has caused contract disputes in ways that we cannot fully imagine. Parties will call their attorneys asking if they can send default letters or if they have defenses for missing contractual deadlines. Terms such as "force majeure," "acts of God," "impossibility of performance," and "Oh my gosh, the contract is silent on this," will become staples of our legal diet. Calls asking, "Does this fall under my business interruption insurance?" have become common. Unfortunately, there is no one answer to all of these questions because the nature of the contract disputes vary widely depending on the industry, facts, locations and laws involved in the particular dispute. This presentation will provide general guidance and focuses on federal common law, New York law, Delaware law and Texas law.
