About the Webinar:

COVID-19 has brought the US economy, especially for Otolaryngology practices, to a standstill.  The recent passing of the CARES Act brings some much-needed help for practices in this time of crisis. Understanding how all the programs work, their applicability to your practice, and what is needed to access them can be challenging Earlens, like many businesses, is impacted and we benefit by having access to the leading law firms and medical device lobbying organizations. This access has helped us to clearly understand the bill, what program(s) are most applicable, and how to apply for them quickly. In this unprecedented time, we are bringing this expert guidance directly to you so that you can make the right decisions for your practice.   
Three topics will be discussed on the webinar:

  1. Bill Facteau will discuss our actions to weather the storm and creative ideas we have implemented to reduce our monthly operating expenses.

  2. Bernard Shay will discuss the specific programs of the CARES Act, their applicability, and details of the Payroll Protection Program.  He will review how to determine the loan amount, mechanisms that can make it 100% forgivable, recommended best practices to follow once you receive it, and next steps to access it.

  3. Thomas M. Krummel will discuss the current impact to elective surgeries and procedures, what Stanford is predicting the impact will be for 2020, and how they are preparing. 

A 10-minute question and answer session will be held at the end of the webinar.
