COVID-19 Employee Health Issues for Home Health Hospice Agencies

Despite the approval, release and distribution of a coronavirus vaccine, the numbers of available doses are still not sufficient to vaccinate all at-risk populations and individuals.  Thus, home health and hospice agencies may have to make difficult decisions regarding COVID-19 vaccines.  The questions we will cover include whether the State of Texas, the Federal Government or a home health agency or hospice may require employees to receive a coronavirus vaccine, what conditions may exempt or excuse an employee from getting a vaccine, and what recourse an employer may have if an employee refuses a coronavirus vaccine.  And how should you handle patients who ask if their caregivers are vaccinated?  Join attorneys Heidi Kocher and Jennifer Papapanagiotou for a discussion of the considerations home health agencies and hospices must evaluate in developing their policies. This webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes with a Q & A session to follow. Registration is free for all TAHCH members and Liles Parker clients.

Medicare Telehealth and Telecommunications Technology in Home Health and Hospice.

With the advent of COVID-19, CMS has taken a number of steps to make it easier for patients to be treated remotely, using telehealth.  Many home health and hospice agencies have expressed interest in this treatment approach and are still evaluating whether or not to implement its use in their agency.  Unfortunately, there is a lot of confusion with regard to the use of telehealth when providing home health or hospice care.  During this webinar, we will try to address a number of your questions in this regard.  Join attorneys Ashley Morgan and Mary Soule Cutler for a discussion of the current home health and hospice telehealth environment and the risks that your agency may face should you choose to employ this type of care. This webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes with a Q & A session to follow. Registration is free for all TAHCH members and Liles Parker clients.
