With more than 100,000 lives claimed by COVID-19 in the United States to date, the pandemic has placed an unprecedented strain on our national health care system. The surge that descended on our nation's health care facilities in mid-April exposed major weaknesses in the system as a whole. Now, hospitals, providers, and insurance companies have the opportunity to work toward a future where we're more prepared to face the challenges brought on by a major public health crisisand the legal community will be a key player in shaping that future. 

Phillip Greer, CEO of Best Lawyers, moderates a panel of two health care law attorneys to discuss the legal issues hospitals and health care providers are facing as a result of COVID-19.
