The Physician's Role in Paid Family Leave
As a physician, you play a critical role in certifying medical documentation in a timely manner and raising awareness of Paid Family Leave among your patients and their families.
Physicians can determine if a patient with a serious health condition is in need of family care and help them receive the support they need. Additionally you can provide the required certification or documentation to patients and family members who request Paid Family Leave for either bonding with a new child or caring for a family member with a serious health condition.
This presentation will:
- Provide an overview of New York's Paid Family Leave
- Provide an overview of the health care providers' role in the process
- Point you to helpful resources.
There are two opportunities to attend. There will be time at the end for questions and answers as well.
