As of this moment, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) is set to expire on Dec. 31, 2020. Considering the tense atmosphere in Washington D.C., renewal of FFCRA is not guaranteed. However, in these last weeks of 2020, it’s important to remember that FFCRA regulations were revised in mid-September due to a U.S. District Court decision. The U.S. Department of Labor regulations revised the definition of “healthcare provider” to “include only employees who meet the definition of that term under the Family and Medical Leave Act regulations or who are employed to provide diagnostic services, preventative services, treatment services, or other services that are integrated with and necessary to the provision of patient care which, if not provided, would adversely impact patient care.” Roles such at IT, HR, billing and maintenance may affect the provision of patient care, but they are not integrated with patient care.
