The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) cosponsored the recent conference on Long-Term care and the Law presented by the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA). This is the fourth consecutive year that NAHC was a cosponsor. Each year has shown a significant increase in the home care programming offered.
Health care executives and lawyers from across the country attended the conference held this year in Las Vegas. Bill Dombi, NAHC’s VP for Law, opened the home care programming with a session on legislative, regulatory, and legal issues affecting home care providers and hospices. A packed room heard an update on current Congressional action on Medicare, Medicaid, and other health programs.
Conference programming also included a number of home care-focused sessions along with workshops of importance to home care companies and other post-acute care providers. The programs included sessions on compliance, business transactions, telehealth, claims audits, employee compensation under the Fair Labor Standards Act, managed care and the ACA employer mandate. Presenters came from the health law experts from around the country for the only conference of its kind.
“NAHC cosponsors this conference as it is the only concentrated legal program of its kind all year long,” stated Dombi. “This conference really fits well for health care executives as well as lawyers.”
At the upcoming NAHC March on Washington and Policy Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to attend workshops on some of these same topics such as the ACA employer mandate and FLSA compliance along with a deep program on legislative and regulatory issues and concerns. The March on Washington will be held in Washington, DC from March 23-26, 2014.
