Health Law Partner Sarah Coyne Provides Insight to McKnights Long-Term Care News on CMS Vaccine Mandate Development

McKnights Long-Term Care News

Sarah Coyne, a Health Law partner in the Quarles & Brady Madison office, shared her insight with McKnights Long-Term Care News about the decision by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to suspend its COVID-19 vaccine mandate after temporary injunctions were granted in several states. CMS has appealed the federal court rulings.

In the article, Coyne said, “For healthcare entities in states where there is a state law mandate for vaccination, it is safest to continue the mandate. For other states (which have neither a mandate nor a prohibition), the states could go either way… Our thought is that if you are in one of these states and it did not participate as a plaintiff in either lawsuit, you should continue to press forward with the mandate. That said, numerous systems are deciding to hold on the mandate.”
