Health-care facilities across the U.S. must once again work toward complying with a Biden administration vaccine mandate, attorneys who advise hospitals and other medical providers said in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to allow the requirement to move forward.
The CMS has said all along its goal is to get employers to comply with the mandate, rather than impose harsh penalties.
West Palm Beach Partner Kristin Ahr says given the complex legal challenges raised, CMS will likely give additional time for enforcement so long as covered employers can demonstrate that they are taking all steps toward compliance in good faith.
Nelson Mullins represents and advises hospitals and medical providers in matters involving vaccine mandates, required exemptions, and other compliance issues.
