Collapse Navigating the Minefield of Political Campaign Activities: A Guide for 501(c)(3) Organizations

Could non-profits play a huge role in the result of the 2016 presidential election?

You might be thinking that non-profits can't be involved in politics, right?  Truth is, there’s a fine line between what they can and cannot do legally when it comes to politics. That line distinguishes issues advocacy from partisan electioneering, but this election season, it’s a line that is sure to get blurred as the election heats up!

Do not miss our webinar on September 29 as we discuss the basics of the political campaign activity rules for 501(c)(3) organizations.  There will be a particular emphasis on how to navigate contentious issues in an election year including an explanation of the key legal concepts, application to hypothetical scenarios, and Q&A.

Topics covered include:

  • How to engage in issue advocacy without crossing the line into prohibited political campaign activity;
  • The line between personal activities of organization directors, officers, and employees and activities that are attributed to the organization; and
  • How to approach nonpartisan voter education activities.

    With the various funding sources that support grantees, following the federal rules for cost allocation and program income can be confusing.  In addition, charging the costs of employee time to specific federal grants can be onerous.  But if your program fails to follow these rules correctly, monitoring findings, cost disallowances, and additional penalties can result.  Doing things right - that is, following proper requirements and ensuring proper oversight - is critical for remaining financial stable.

    Learning Objectives:
    • Learn how to properly allocate costs across grant-funded programs;
    • Define program income and its implications for federal grants; and
    • Understand federal requirements related to time and effort reporting.

    Collapse The Board
    As part of the Corporate Compliance Trainings developed in collaboration with the National Association of Community Health Centers (“NACHC”), we are offering a two-hour online training program for health center board members.  The training will address the Board’s role in establishing and overseeing corporate compliance programs.

    The Board’s important role in establishing and overseeing the compliance program is rapidly becoming a “duty of care” obligation.  Section 330 implementing regulations already require a health center’s Board of Directors to ensure that the health center is operated in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Under the Health Reform Law, health centers must implement corporate compliance programs as a condition of enrollment in Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP.

    This pre-recorded webinar by Jacki Leifer, Esq. will outline the Board’s role in establishing and overseeing corporate compliance programs, explore the benefits of a health center corporate compliance program in today’s legal landscape, and set forth the expectations placed on Board members related to the health center’s compliance program, providing real-life examples of “do’s” and “don’ts”. 

    Permitting greater flexibility in scheduling, the pre-recorded webinar allows registrants to access and play the recording multiple times for their health center Board during a 30-day time period.  Included in the cost of the webinar is a live 30 minute follow-up session with Jacki for Board members to ask questions related to the webinar.

    Cost: $350 before applicable discounts:
    • $50 off for NACHC members.
    • $50 off for organizations that attended a 2-day training.

    Collapse The Final Rule on the FLSA White-Collar Overtime Regulations:  What Employers Need to Know Now

    On May 18, the U.S. Department of Labor released its Final Rule on white-collar exemptions to the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.  Among other things, the Final Rule, which will take effect December 1, 2016, raises the salary level for exempt status and the compensation level for highly compensated employees.  The thresholds will automatically be adjusted every three years.  These and other changes in the Final Rule are expected to have a significant impact on many employers.

    What should you be doing to be prepared for December 1? FTLF is partnering with Stacy Mueller of Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP to bring you this timely webinar which will cover the provisions of the Final Rule and what employers need to be thinking about right now.  The webinar will address the following topics:

    • New salary threshold for exempt status
    • New compensation level for highly compensated employees
    • Review of the duties test (which will remain unchanged)
    • Special guidance for non-profit employers
    • Reclassification considerations, and options going forward: what employers need to be thinking about now

    Collapse The Impact of Health Reform on Compliance
    The Affordable Care Act expands health coverage and funds many new grant programs.  At the same time, it also strengthens the Government’s ability to pursue fraud and abuse enforcement and makes significant changes that intensify the risk and consequences of failing to implement an effective corporate compliance program, such as relaxing requirements for whistleblowers to bring suit. In fact, many programs are now required to have compliance programs. So it is critical you establish effective compliance programs including internal reporting systems to encourage staff to report potential non-compliance within the organization.

    Learning Objectives:
    • Understand recent Government enforcement actions and initiatives;
    • Learn new compliance requirements in the health reform law; and
    • Consider the risks to grantees created by the health reform law.

    Who Should Attend: Financial and operational staff, Senior management, Compliance Officers, though all are welcome.

    We recommend that your organization share a webinar registration and gather to participate in the webinar together.  Should your organization not be able to come together, you may register for additional lines at the discounted rate of $30 per line.

    In this online training:
    • Ensure you manage real property and equipment properly
    • Know what records you must keep and when you must report to the Government
    • Review the appropriate uses of property subject to the Federal Interest

    Collapse An In-Depth Look at Federal Tort Claims Act - Orlando, FL (December 2016)

    December 7 & 8, 2016

    Orlando, FL

    Wednesday, December 7, 2016 - 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

    Thursday, December 8, 2016 - 8:30 am - 12:30 pm 

    Operating a health center within the confines of the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) has never been more challenging. The myriad requirements, involvement of various agencies, coupled with increased accountability and responsibility can make providing health care services to your patients a risky proposition. This training provides information from trusted and experienced health center attorneys, Marty Bree, Molly Evans, and Matthew Freedus, who for years have provided advice and counsel on the day-to-day issues which arise around FTCA at health centers. It will also provide needed opportunities for you to share ideas and best practices with your colleagues from across the country.

    Description of Training Content:
    In this live, hands-on training, we'll discuss the biggest risks in FTCA coverage for health centers - from risks related to their applications and participation (either deeming or redeeming) in the FTCA program to common concerns around the complex set of rules on which FTCA coverage is based. This training will cover the most up-to-date FTCA "hot issues" that health centers across the country face in the ever-changing healthcare environment.

    Topics we will cover include:

    • Deeming and Redeeming Applications - FTCA coverage is contingent on approval of an annual deeming application by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). For many health centers, these deeming application requirements have become increasingly more challenging to meet. From credentialing and privileging to referral tracking, HRSA deeming requirements can be complicated and confusing. It is essential for health centers to understand these deeming requirements so that they can get them right.
    • Site Visits - HRSA has begun conducting random FTCA site visits to both initial applicants and deemed grantees. According to the 2015 deeming PAL, if a site visit results in a finding of a lack of implementation of the FTCA program requirements, it may be grounds for a negative deeming determination-- leaving the health center without malpractice coverage. During these two and one-half day site visits, HRSA reviews implementation of health center programs related to risk management, QI/QA activities and the health center’s credentialing and privileging program. We will discuss how to prepare for and be successful in these FTCA site visits. We will also discuss common issues that arise for health centers when these programs are audited.
    • Principles of Coverage - Once deemed, a health center must operate within the confines of the FTCA program requirements to ensure that its activities are covered. In most cases, only services provided to a health center patient within the scope of project of the health center and the scope of employment of the provider are covered by FTCA. If any of these elements is missing, the health center could be jeopardizing its FTCA coverage. We will review the principles of FTCA coverage and discuss common pitfalls and potential liabilities and risks for your health center.
    • FTCA Claims Process - After a claim has been filed against your health center, you must take certain deliberate steps to access coverage under the FTCA. Health centers that do not go through these required steps may be putting their FTCA coverage at risk. We will discuss best practices in the FTCA claims process and discuss those actions that could jeopardize coverage for your health center.
    • Gap Insurance - Do you need Gap Insurance? How do you know? In this session we will discuss the types of insurance available and the decision-making process a health center needs to use to make an informed decision.
    • FTCA Case Law - Since the inception of the FTCA Program the courts have made significant rulings that affect health centers' FTCA protection. This session will review the history of these decisions and explain the impact on the health center.

    Collapse Indirect Cost Rates: What are they and why you might want one?

    Indirect costs represent the expenses of doing business that are not readily identified with a particular grant, contract, project function or activity, but are necessary for the general operation of the organization. These administrative overhead or “indirect” costs are often what keeps the organization operating smoothly and efficiently, but are not tied to any one individual. Examples of indirect costs include:

    • Administrative staff: the Executive Director, Finance Director, Human Resources, the receptionist;
    • Office space used by those staff, including costs of rent and utilities;
    • Equipment and services used by everyone: copiers, phone systems, janitorial service, IT support; and
    • Board expenses.

    Therefore, the federal government has a standardized, and fairly complex, method of determining your indirect costs, which results in a negotiated Indirect Cost Rate. This webinar will address why an indirect cost rate is important, how it is calculated, and what can be included in an organization’s indirect cost rate.

    Collapse Risk Areas for the Supercircular: Are you in compliance?

    Federal grantees have numerous rules to follow when it comes to the strings that attach to their funding streams.  Getting these wrong can have serious and costly consequences.  Staying in compliance with all of the applicable rules and regulations, however, can be daunting, and the new Supercircular has only made the task even more difficult for federal grantees. From changes relating to time and effort reporting to indirect cost rates and cost allocations and everything between federal  grantees are required to incorporate all of the new requirements into their existing business practices and related policies and procedures.  Accomplishing all of this correctly can be a big task, and before you get too far, now is a good time to conduct your own self-audit to make sure that you have implemented the new requirements correctly.  Being proactive is essential in order to minimize of possibility of potential delays and interruptions to program funding, and  periodic federal grants  self audits can help to minimize this possibility by helping to keep you in compliance.

    February 28 & March 1, 2017

    Tuesday, February 28, 2017- 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

    Wednesday, March 1, 2017 - 8:30 am - 12:30 pm 

    Operating a health center within the confines of the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) has never been more challenging. The myriad requirements, involvement of various agencies, coupled with increased accountability and responsibility can make providing health care services to your patients a risky proposition. This training provides information from trusted and experienced health center attorneys, Marty Bree, Molly Evans, and Matthew Freedus, who for years have provided advice and counsel on the day-to-day issues which arise around FTCA at health centers. It will also provide needed opportunities for you to share ideas and best practices with your colleagues from across the country.

    Description of Training Content:
    In this live, hands-on training, we'll discuss the biggest risks in FTCA coverage for health centers - from risks related to their applications and participation (either deeming or redeeming) in the FTCA program to common concerns around the complex set of rules on which FTCA coverage is based. This training will cover the most up-to-date FTCA "hot issues" that health centers across the country face in the ever-changing healthcare environment.

    Topics we will cover include:

    • Deeming and Redeeming Applications - FTCA coverage is contingent on approval of an annual deeming application by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). For many health centers, these deeming application requirements have become increasingly more challenging to meet. From credentialing and privileging to referral tracking, HRSA deeming requirements can be complicated and confusing. It is essential for health centers to understand these deeming requirements so that they can get them right.
    • Site Visits - HRSA has begun conducting random FTCA site visits to both initial applicants and deemed grantees. According to the 2015 deeming PAL, if a site visit results in a finding of a lack of implementation of the FTCA program requirements, it may be grounds for a negative deeming determination-- leaving the health center without malpractice coverage. During these two and one-half day site visits, HRSA reviews implementation of health center programs related to risk management, QI/QA activities and the health center’s credentialing and privileging program. We will discuss how to prepare for and be successful in these FTCA site visits. We will also discuss common issues that arise for health centers when these programs are audited.
    • Principles of Coverage - Once deemed, a health center must operate within the confines of the FTCA program requirements to ensure that its activities are covered. In most cases, only services provided to a health center patient within the scope of project of the health center and the scope of employment of the provider are covered by FTCA. If any of these elements is missing, the health center could be jeopardizing its FTCA coverage. We will review the principles of FTCA coverage and discuss common pitfalls and potential liabilities and risks for your health center.
    • FTCA Claims Process - After a claim has been filed against your health center, you must take certain deliberate steps to access coverage under the FTCA. Health centers that do not go through these required steps may be putting their FTCA coverage at risk. We will discuss best practices in the FTCA claims process and discuss those actions that could jeopardize coverage for your health center.
    • Gap Insurance - Do you need Gap Insurance? How do you know? In this session we will discuss the types of insurance available and the decision-making process a health center needs to use to make an informed decision.
    • FTCA Case Law - Since the inception of the FTCA Program the courts have made significant rulings that affect health centers' FTCA protection. This session will review the history of these decisions and explain the impact on the health center.

    Over the last few years, HRSA has significantly increased its scrutiny of health centers’ compliance with the nineteen (19) key health center program requirements through the on-site Operational Site Visit (OSV) process.

    • Are you providing all required services and does your Scope of Project accurately identify the mode of delivery?
    • Do you have appropriate and compliant contracts and agreements in place with other health care providers? 
    • Have you fully implemented the new sliding fee discount program requirements?
    • Do your billing and collection policies maximize reimbursement while maintaining optimum access? 
    • Is your Board of Directors exercising all of its authorities and meeting other governance requirements? 

    Given the potential consequences of non-compliance (including draw-down restrictions and re-competition of your grant), it is crucial that every health center prepare itself by reviewing its compliance with all core requirements generally and certain “hot button” issues, in particular. 

    Join Marcie Zakheim from FTLF and Warren Brodine,trusted health center advisor, for this hands-on training as they walk health centers through the OSV process, a review of the 19 program requirements and identify key hotspots (both old and new) that cause concerns from OSV reviewers. 

    Participants will explore current trends and patterns that have emerged from the field regarding governance, administration and finance and receive “tips” from our speakers.  Whether or not you have an OSV on the horizon, this is a must attend workshop!
