US Supreme Court to Take Up Federal COVID-19 Vaccine Rules
The United States Supreme Court will oral arguments on President Biden’s COVID-19 vaccination rules for private employers and health care workers on Jan. 7.
The Court announced it would hear oral arguments over President Biden's vaccine-or-test mandate for large employers and a regulation from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requiring vaccines for health care workers.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a rule last month requiring companies with more than 100 employees to mandate that their workers either receive a COVID-19 vaccine or undergo regular testing.
The CMS rule requires health care workers in facilities that receive Medicare and Medicaid funding – to be vaccinated. – THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE INDEPENDENT PHYSICIAN PRACTICES.
The federal rules are apart and separate from vaccine rules implemented by the State of Maine requiring health care workers to be vaccinated or receive a medical exemption. Independent physician practices are also not included under Maine’s rules.Read more on the upcoming US Supreme Court arguments fromHealthcare Dive.
