In addition to highlighting legal considerations, including but not limited to requirements applicable to Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act and the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), the session will cover important tips, budgeting, referral protocols, and ensuring that any new sites and/or new services are approved by HRSA and added to the health center’s scope.
