Fox Rothschild LLP partner, William Maruca, was recently interviewed for an article in Cosmos regarding the regulatory risks to hospitals and DME suppliers who enter into arrangements to ensure that COVID-19 patients receive free home oxygen equipment.  Some hospitals have decided to take on the inherent risks in such an arrangement to address a lack of home oxygen equipment in the pandemic, so that COVID-19 patients can be discharged earlier and beds can be turned over for new patients.
