Arlington, Va. — Bloomberg Law today announced the availability of its 2021 Outlook on Health Law, a must-read resource for health law practitioners to stay on top of the  legal issues arising from the Covid-19 pandemic and to plan for a year of potential major changes in health policy from the Biden administration.

  • Practical Guidance including a checklist of considerations for employers as they consider mandating Covid-19 vaccination, and a sample consent form for telehealth-based treatment services.
  • Practitioner Perspectives including a review of what was robust M&A activity for health care industry deals in 2020 and what to expect in 2021, key trends in digital health, and efforts underway within state legislatures that could thwart an employer’s ability to mandate vaccination.
