A duty of care refers to the obligation to take responsible care to avoid injury to a person whom, it can be reasonably foreseen, might be injured by an act or omission.

In home health, the care you provide must be looked at through a multidisciplinary lens where multiple complex issues will arise. As an Administrator, there will be times you are dependent on outside resources, and community partners, to solve a need. It is also important to understand ethical issues associated with using outside resources, including ensuring that there are no “kickbacks” associated with using other community partners. This presentation teaches Administrators how, and where, to locate community resources for their patients/clients, how to utilize community resources in an ethical way, as well as how to train field staff, to recognize issues in the home care setting that might warrant the use of community resources.

We will also discuss the statutory violations that have repeatedly led to criminal prosecutions in Texas. Finally, we will discuss steps you can take to reduce your level of statutory and regulatory risk. In this webinar, attorneys Paul Weidenfeld and Robert W. Liles will discuss the importance of compliance and the likely penalties of non-compliance with the law. Program Learning Outcome: Participants will actively participate in the learning activity and indicate an intent to change or enhance their practice by ensuring that all claims are properly documented, coded, and billed in compliance with state and federal healthcare laws. TAHC&H Faculty/Presenters: Paul Weidenfeld, JD and Ashley Morgan, JD | Liles Parker Attorneys & Counselors at Law About the Presenter:
Paul Weidenfeld brings a unique perspective to False Claims Act cases, Fraud Investigations and Qui Tam, or whistleblower, lawsuits which is partly the result of his rare combination of having BOTH extensive litigation experience (more than 50 trials and 25 appellate) AND subject matter expertise (10 years as a fraud prosecutor, 2 years as the DOJ Healthcare Fraud Coordinator, and experience as a partner in a major healthcare law firm). Virtually every litigation decision in these complex cases requires an understanding of the persons and agencies involved, an understanding of the law, and an ability to predict how the litigation will actually evolve in the legal system — and there is no one better suited to help in this process. Finally, Paul’s experiences have taught him that there is no one-size-fits-all in the world of settlement or conflict resolution, and he is well known for his ability to find innovative solutions to difficult litigation problems. About the Presenter:
Ashley Hudson Morgan is an Associate Attorney in Liles Parker’s Washington, DC office where she focuses her practice on regulatory health care compliance matters, fraud and abuse, and reimbursement issues.

She has extensive experience working on administrative appeals of large alleged extrapolated overpayments assessed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) contractors including, Zone Program Integrity Contractors (ZPICs), Unified Program Integrity Contractors (UPICs), and Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and by private payors.

Ashley is a Certified Medical Compliance Officer and helps clients implement effective compliance programs and provides counsel on mandatory state and industry-specific policies and procedures. In this capacity, Ashley provides on-site walk-throughs to review OSHA compliance and performs training for staff members on HIPAA and other mandatory compliance regulations.
