NEW YORK, April 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today launched the MediRegs COVID-19 Regulatory Search, the first free resource of its kind that offers quick access to state and federal regulations related to the pandemic. The digital resource is available on the open web to support coding, reimbursement and compliance professionals.

It also offers a topic page to quickly access a wide range of comprehensive information, as well as insight and guidance on waivers, emergency preparedness and other critical resources from federal agencies.
"Wolters Kluwer has always been committed to providing professionals with accurate information when they need it most, and in today's environment, there is a clear and present need for getting the right information as quickly as possible," said Tim Feldman, Vice President & General Manager of Healthcare Compliance and Reimbursement for Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. "The regulations related to COVID-19 are changing nearly every day, and the sheer amount of information available is making it far more difficult for professionals to understand and comply with rules at different levels of government.
