  • Rural Health and the Law: Problems, Public Health Approaches, and Potential Legal Solutions, All Parts

    In the wake of the 2016 presidential elections, media attention was drawn to the increasingly divergent economic fortunes of rural and urban America.

    Session Dates: September 12, October 10, November 14
    Time (All Sessions): 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes) 
    Sessions Format: Live Webinars

    In the wake of the 2016 presidential elections, media attention was drawn to the increasingly divergent economic fortunes of rural and urban America. Rural areas have suffered from high rates of outmigration and loss of human resources, and some predominantly rural regions, especially in Appalachia, have seen marked declines in life expectancy and other health indicators. One key factor in this decline has been diminished access to healthcare: rural hospitals, in contrast to their well-funded urban counterparts, have struggled to keep the lights on. Hospital groups have increasingly consolidated operations, leaving rural hospitals understaffed and underfunded. Hospital closures are far from the only negative health trend impacting rural areas: the opioid epidemic too, is concentrated primarily in rural areas. Participants in all three programs will come away with an understanding of drivers of this disparity, and innovations in public health and healthcare to address these issues. Legal and policy solutions will be discussed including the use of telemedicine, medical-legal partnerships, rural accountable care organizations, and county-based care integration models.

    This webinar series will serve to bring awareness to the unique health needs of rural communities, and o inform and educate public health and health lawyers, their clients, and partners across the health care system, about the growing disparity between rural and urban health outcomes, and ways that laws and legal frameworks can be used to address this issue. This monthly series will begin in September and end in November, on November 14th, one week before the nation celebrates National Rural Health Day.

  • Litigating Cases Under the False Claims Act Retaliation Provision

    Includes a Live Event on 10/17/2019 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    The False Claims (FCA) is known for its qui tam (whistleblower) provisions, which includes a strong anti-retaliation provision. With the proliferation of FCA qui tam actions, health care businesses of all types and sizes must not only attempt to avoid whistleblower claims by taking proactive measures to ensure compliance within the organization, but must also be careful to take concerns from potential whistleblowers seriously and not act in any way that could be viewed as retaliatory. This webinar will discuss the "ins and outs" of FCA retaliation claims and how to both avoid and defend them.

  • Analyzing The Final SNF Arbitration Rule: Opportunities and New Challenges

    Includes a Live Event on 10/16/2019 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    This webinar will discuss the challenges and opportunities with the final rule, as well as ways to make the arbitration process more defensible.

    Time: 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes)
    Session Format: Live Webinar
    CLE Credit Available:  Yes

    The uncertainty surrounding the use of arbitration agreements in nursing homes has finally ended—at least for now.  On July 16, 2019, CMS released its long-awaited final rule, which updates the requirements nursing homes must meet to use binding arbitration agreements.  As with the proposed rule and consistent with a federal court injunction, the final rule reverses the prior administration’s wholesale ban on pre-dispute arbitration agreements in nursing facilities.  But the final rule does impose new conditions on the use of arbitration agreements in nursing facilities.  It remains an open question whether CMS actually has authority to regulate arbitration as part of its conditions of participation, so this final rule may face a lawsuit similar to the one that struck down the prior attempted arbitration ban.  

    In the meantime, nursing facilities must update their admission practices and agreements to comply with the conditions of participation, including challenging new requirements such as explaining the agreement in a language and terms the resident and resident’s representative understands.  While these regulations are part of the requirements of participation and are not directly regulate arbitration agreements, facilities should nevertheless prepare for litigation challenges based on these final rules.  This webinar will discuss the challenges and opportunities with the final rule, as well as ways to make the arbitration process more defensible.
