Hodgson Russ invites owners of LHCSAs, or anyone wishing to become licensed in NYS, to register to attend this complimentary series of three webinars discussing current trends and developments relating to LHCSAs.

Webinar 1: Government Audit and Enforcement Update for LHCSAs

December 11, 2019 (Please note this is a new date - rescheduled from December 2)

3:00 - 4:00 p.m. ET

Now more than ever, LHCSAs are inundated with various federal and New York State government audits. Owners and operators are often unsure how to approach the different investigative agencies that subpoena their records, what rights they have in responding to the information demands or subpoenas, and what the potential ramifications are from the different audits. This webinar will review the most common government audits that are currently underway in the New York State LHCSA space and how agencies can prepare for those audits.

Webinar 2: Looking Beyond the LHCSA Moratorium: Proposed Regulations for Licensing and Transfer of Ownership of LHCSAs

December 9, 2019

2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

The NYS DOH has proposed regulations that would govern the licensure and transfer of ownership of licensed home care services agencies. This webinar will outline the proposed regulations, what providers can do to object or propose amendments to the proposed regulations, and what the regulations would mean to current operators and anyone wishing to become a licensed home care agency, should the regulations go in effect as proposed. 

Please register for the above session HERE by December 6.

Webinar 3: 2019 in Review for LHCSAs and FIs, and What to Expect in 2020

December 16, 2019

2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET

2019 was a busy year for home health care providers in New York State. The budget season resulted in angst and uncertainty for fiscal intermediaries and entities wishing to become a fiscal intermediary. Plans closed and other plans assumed the patients, under unfair conditions in many cases. The 24-hour live-in issue was finally decided by the New York State Court of Appeals. Wage Parity audits and government scrutiny continued. DOH tried – and continues to try – to reduce reimbursement for fiscal intermediaries. The federal overtime regulations were changed, with effective dates on January 1. The sexual harassment laws and regulations were fully phased in, and amended. This webinar will review all the changes that you might have missed in 2019 and discuss some legislative priorities and agenda items that providers may wish to consider as the 2020-2021 New York State budget season kicks off in January 2020!

Please register for the above session HERE by December 13.
