The FTCA Program: How to Manage Compliance After the Public Health Emergency

Tuesday, June 20, 2023 | 11-11:45 a.m. PT

About this Webinar

With the public health emergency (PHE) ending and COVID-19 remaining part of the healthcare landscape, new questions on the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) program’s ability to provide liability protection for health centers in a variety of circumstances have been raised.

Join us as we review the opportunities of a program designed to provide professional liability protection for health centers and staff after numerous gaps were exposed during the pandemic. This session will cover lessons learned from our response to a national PHE and critical components of the FTCA program that need clarity and improvement.


Join us on Tuesday, June 20, to gain:

  • An understanding of the basic concepts of the FTCA program
  • The ability to discern the requirements for FTCA protection of telehealth visits
  • An overview of the changes in FTCA coverage
  • And so much more!
