In August 2017, HRSA issued the final Health Center Program Compliance Manual, providing a streamlined and consolidated resource to assist Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in understanding and demonstrating compliance with their programmatic requirements. The Manual replaces several Policy Information Notices (PINs) and Program Assistance Letters (PALs), merging prior guidance into one document that explains the statutory and regulatory mandates of each requirement, which collectively form the framework of every health center's specific program. The Manual also incorporates a new approach to "everyday compliance," addressing the elements and documentation necessary to verify compliance with each requirement as well as explicit areas of health center flexibility. The Manual has been effective since publication in August 2017.
NEW for 2018: Recently, HRSA issued a new Site Visit Protocol aligned with the Manual and reflecting a more objective assessment tool for use during both Operational Site Visits (OSVs) and on-site reviews for initial FQHC Look-Alike Designations. Currently, HRSA intends to use the new Site Visit Protocol for all on-site assessments taking place after January 22, 2018.
What does that mean for health centers with upcoming grant applications and OSVs? While the requirements outlined in the Manual continue to reflect the statutory and regulatory mandates, the Manual provides both specific steps to demonstrate compliance and explicit areas where health centers retain discretion to tailor their programs appropriately. Join FTLF Partners, Marcie Zakheim, Molly Evans and Ted Waters for one or all five parts of this webinar series as they explore key differences between prior HRSA guidance and the Manual and describe the critical implications on health center operations. Participants will also learn about the new Site Visit Protocol and gather "tips" to navigate the updated on-site assessment process and establish a culture of on-going compliance.
A partner at the firm, Marcie specializes in health care law, particularly in the areas of federal grants, grant-related requirements and grants management related to the federal health center program. Health centers turn to Marcie as a resource for knowing not only the letter of the law, but also the likely interpretation of requirements by federal policymakers, including the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
