Gov. Beshear announced this evening the administration is finalizing plans to reopen certain healthcare services beginning Monday, April 27. The services allowed to reopen during the first phase of the plan include diagnostic, radiology, non-urgent, emergent, in-person, office and ambulatory visits, as well as pre-anesthesia testing services.
Gov. Beshear indicated that the second phase would include outpatient and ambulatory procedures, which he hopes could restart in the next few weeks. He also cautioned that some elements of appointments would need to be adjusted to adhere to social distancing guidelines, such as patient waiting rooms.
KMA will provide more details to members as they become available.
