Highlights:

 

  • Requires the Department of Health and Human Services in consultation with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs to evaluate each COVID-19 regional hub that was implemented in a nursing home and provide a detailed report of their evaluation to the house and senate standing committees on health policy by July 31, 2020 (Sec. 5145).

  • Requires the department to submit a plan to the house and senate standing committees on health policy by August 15, 2020, to ensure that dedicated facilities are available in each of the 8 health care regions by September 15, 2020, for only coronavirus-positive patients who are ineligible for admission at a nursing home (Sec. 5145).
