The FTCA Program: Integrating Lessons Learned from 2017 to Successfully Navigate 2018 and Beyond


Mar 17, 2018 8:00am ‐ Mar 17, 2018 10:00am

Description

Health centers rely on the professional liability coverage offered pursuant to the Health Center Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) program. From submitting the initial application for “deeming” status to handling malpractice claims and preparing for a site visit, FTCA program compliance is essential. Failing to comply with the FTCA program requirements can be very costly for health centers and providers who can be left without any professional liability insurance. In this session, trusted and experienced health center attorneys will discuss the impact of FTCA on health center operations, as well as the benefits and risks associated with participation in the FTCA program. Important lessons learned from health centers implementing the specific guidance of the new Health Center Program Compliance Manual pertaining to the changes of the deeming and redeeming applications, as well as adding licensed medical practitioner volunteers to FTCA coverage pursuant to the 21st Century Cures Act will be highlighted. The speakers will share successful strategies for 2018 and beyond with a focus on deeming applications and emergency-preparedness. There will be a call-in office hour in May to answer any questions that could not be addressed  during the live event, as well as any additional concerns that have emerged.
