CINCINNATI, OHIO - Over 200 people attended the Ohio Association of Community Health Center's 2015 annual conference. Dowling & O'Neil was honored to be among the group of excellent presenters. We asked Alice Epstein, the Risk Control Practice Leader for Allied Healthcare Facilities at CNA, to talk to attendees about risk management in a session called "FTCA Liability Coverage Gaps".
Relying solely on FTCA to cover medical malpractice claims can leave gaps in a deemed community health center's liability protection. Ms. Epstein's presentation shows how all the pieces of the FTCA protection puzzle come together, from the deeming application process to particularized determinations, to what is not covered by FTCA.
In the Policy Information Notice issued in July 2014, HRSA recognizes that FTCA might not cover all health center activities and, therefore, gap coverage might be necessary. Dowling & O'Neil is a leading provider of gap coverage for health centers across the United States. We offer free risk assessments with no obligation to purchase from us.
