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

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 2:00 PM EST, 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).

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, VA Central Office
  • Patrick O'Keefe, Program Analyst (NRCPDS), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

This webinar follows the January 15, 2015 webinar that the American Health Care Association (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 for more information and online registration.
