Proposed US Facilitating Innovation to Fight Coronavirus Act – Immunity for Current Health Care Providers

US Senator Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, has proposed the Facilitating Innovation to Fight Coronavirus Act.  If passed, the legislation would shield health care providers from federal, state and local civil liability if they are testing or treating coronavirus patients and use or modify a medical device for an unapproved use, practice outside of their specialty but under the instruction of an individual who is licensed in that specialty, or provide care outside of the premises of a standard health care facility.  We will continue to monitor the progress of this Act.

Please visit our COVID-19 Resource Center for more information related to the Coronavirus outbreak.
