MGMA urges DOL to rescind OSHA Healthcare ETS

07/01/2021 8:46 AM | Rebekah Francis (Administrator)

Earlier this week, MGMA sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) asking it to rescind or delay its emergency temporary standard (ETS) aimed at protecting workers facing the highest coronavirus hazards — those working in healthcare settings where suspected or confirmed coronavirus patients are treated. MGMA believes the ETS was issued much too late and will disrupt the ongoing efforts of medical groups to balance the needs of patients against the imperative to protect employees. MGMA hopes that OSHA will rescind the ETS, or at a minimum, delay its effective date until stakeholders have adequate opportunity to provide input on the standard.
