Webinar on VA Contracts and the Service Contract Act (SCA)

Dana Halvorson

It is long-standing policy that Medicare (Parts A and B) or Medicaid providers are not considered to be federal contractors. However, if a provider currently has VA patients, they are considered to be a federal contractor and subject to the Service Contract Act (SCA). On Wednesday, March 18, at 2 PM ET, get your pressing SCA related questions answered on issues impacting you as a VA contractor from officials from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Wednesday, March 18, 2015 
2:00 PM Eastern Time (75 minutes) 

Presenters include:
Jonathan Rees
Counsel for Contract Labor Standards
Office of the Solicitor
U.S. Department of Labor

William Brooks
Senior Policy Advisor - Service Contract Act
Wage and Hour Division
Branch of Government Contracts Enforcement
U.S. Department of Labor

Daniel J. Schoeps
Director, Purchased Long Term Services and Supports
Geriatrics and Extended Care

Patrick O'Keefe

This webinar follows the January 15, 2015 webinar that AHCA held for its members with the VA and DOL on the $10.10 wage issue and VA contracts, where several SCA related questions arose for the Agencies. If you have any questions relating to this March 18th webinar event, please don't hesitate to contact AHCA's Senior Director of Not for Profit & Constituent Services, Dana Halvorson.
