Student Loan Relief

Deferral of Payments and Interest on Government-Sponsored Student Loans

Under the CARES Act, payments on federal government-sponsored student loan payments were suspended and interest rates were temporarily reduced to 0 percent. This provision was scheduled to expire on September 30, 2020. An Executive Order signed by President Trump on August 8, 2020 extended those provisions through December 31, 2020.

COVID-19 Liability Protections and Limitations

Medical Malpractice Resources

Though there was no formal, consistent position on premium relief among the various malpractice insurance providers, many have been willing to work with their customers whose practice has been impacted by the pandemic. Accommodations included refunding policy premiums or issuing credits applicable when either practice resumed or at policy renewal. Fellows should contact their individual malpractice insurance provider to discuss options available.
