While certain companies are thriving (e.g. vaccine developers and telemedicine platforms), many traditional healthcare providers are facing uncertainties (e.g. low patient census in nursing homes and patients declining elective procedures). While this uncertainty may continue for the rest of 2020, an estate planning opportunity exists for entities with good balance sheets who can weather the storm due to lower asset prices and market volatility.
