Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP      Maine Primary Care Association


The Maine Primary Care Association is hosting FTLF for a 1.5-day Corporate Compliance Training in May 2020. This event is open to all and is not limited to MPCA members or Maine health centers.

Health centers face many types of compliance risks: some are unique to health centers (e.g., compliance with Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act and its implementing regulations), while others affect federal grantees and the health care industry more broadly (e.g., the submission of false claims to Medicare, Medicaid, and other third-party payors). Given today’s heightened enforcement environment, it is important for health centers to understand their compliance risks and develop a corporate compliance program that helps to mitigate those risks.

Join us to hear compliance tips from our attorneys’ years of experience working first-hand with health centers.
