(On-Demand Webinar Series) FTCA CY 2019 Deeming Application
Many health centers take part in the professional liability coverage offered under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) program. From submitting the initial application for “deeming” status to implementing the program components and preparing for a site visit, the FTCA program can be complicated and confusing. Failing to comply with the FTCA program requirements can be costly for health centers and providers who can be left without malpractice insurance.
Join us for a two-part webinar series for an overview of the FTCA program and the redeeming process. Whether this is your first time or your 20th submitting a deeming application, this series will be invaluable to submitting a successful application for CY2019.
REMINDER: HRSA’s EHB system will begin receiving CY 2019 deeming applications on May 4, 2018. All currently deemed grantees must submit a redeeming application (including applications for any subrecipients) on or before June 4, 2018 in order to be eligible to be deemed for the entirety of CY 2019 without a gap in coverage.
In the first webinar, we will walk through the CY2019 Program Assistance Letter (PAL) and discuss:
- How to submit an FTCA redeeming application;
- Changes to the application from prior years;
- Strategies and best practices; and
- Common application pitfalls.
In Part II, we will cover the ins and outs of FTCA coverage in more depth and discuss the biggest risks for health centers, including:
- Deeming and Redeeming Applications;
- Site Visits;
- Principles of Coverage;
- FTCA Claims Process;
- Gap Insurance; and
- Other FTCA "hot issues" for health centers.
All are welcome, but we think the webinars will be especially helpful for health center:
- Executive staff
- Clinical leadership
- Human resources staff
