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. This training will review FTCA policies and program procedures related to claims management, risk management, and discuss strategies for ensuring compliance including a review of up-to-date "Hot Topics" that health centers face in the ever-changing health care environment
