FTCA Coverage for Virtual Services
Health centers are rapidly shifting their provision of services to a telehealth modality in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For health centers that are deemed pursuant to the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), it is essential to carefully consider which telehealth activities will be covered by FTCA.
Notwithstanding HRSA’s recent clarifications regarding the intersection of telehealth and FTCA, there remain several key areas of risk, particularly with regard to telehealth visits with non-health center patients. An understanding of the FTCA statute, regulations, and guidance is essential to navigate and reduce such risk.
On this webinar, we will explore FTCA coverage for the provision of in-scope services via telehealth, incorporating lessons learned from prior FTCA litigation and HRSA’s latest informal guidance. This webinar will further describe how you can best ensure malpractice liability protection for your health center and staff members, both in regard to the provision of services that specifically respond to COVID-19 (e.g., testing services) and in regard to providing general in-scope services remotely (e.g., behavioral health services).
