(Recorded Webinar) FTCA For Board Members (April 2017)

Through the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), eligible health centers may be granted medical malpractice liability protection with the Federal government acting as their primary insurer. To receive coverage, grantees must submit an initial deeming application to the Bureau of Primary Health Care and meet the requirements to attain deemed status and must be redeemed on an annual basis to continue coverage. A deemed health center’s employees are considered federal employees and are immune from lawsuits for medical malpractice. A patient who alleges acts of medical malpractice by a deemed health center cannot sue the health center or the providers directly, but rather must file the claim against the United States Government.
 
But what is the role of the health center’s Board of Directors in the FTCA deeming application and redeeming application process?  What are the Board’s requirements in the management of the FTCA program and what are HRSA/ BPHC expectations of the Board?   This webinar is designed for health center board members who want to expand their knowledge of this critical health center program and will specifically address the Board’s role in management of the health center’s FTCA program.  For health center staff who work with the Board, this webinar will provide practical tips and examples on how to increase the Board’s involvement and engagement.
