Many health centers and their staff members 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.
FTCA coverage depends upon whether the services provided are:
- Within the health center’s 330 approved scope of project?
- Within the scope of employment?
- Provided to health center patients?
The answers to these questions are not simple. They often require legal analysis, interpretation of HRSA guidance, and detailed understanding of medical malpractice. 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 for very expensive claims.
FTLF's attorneys will discuss the biggest risks in FTCA coverage for health centers, including risks related to:
- FTCA applications and participation (either deeming or redeeming)
- Common concerns around FTCA coverage
- Current FTCA "hot issues" that health centers across the country face in the ever-changing healthcare environment
This session will also cover substantive changes in the FTCA program such as the addition of FTCA coverage for volunteers, as well as the significant changes made to the deeming application to bring it into alignment with the Health Center Compliance Manual.
- New Staff
- Medical Directors
- Risk Managers
- Compliance Officers
- CEOs, COOs, CMOs, CFOs
- Grants Managers
- Human Resources Managers and staff
- Anyone who works on deeming applications
After this training, you will be able to:
- Describe the Deeming and Redeeming Application process and how the processes have changed to align with the Health Center Compliance Manual
- Understand what triggers a FTCA Site Visit and common issues that arise for health centers when these programs are audited
- Identify the Principles of FTCA coverage, including the newly established coverage for volunteers, and discuss common pitfalls and potential liabilities and risks for your health center
- Review best practices in the FTCA claims process and discuss those actions that could jeopardize coverage for your health center
- Assess the types of insurance available and the decision-making process a health center needs to use to make an informed decision
- Explain the recent history of FTCA cases and the impact on health centers
