Florida users are welcome to a User Group Meeting being held at 1890 West State Road 436, Suite 295, Winter Park, FL 04210 on October 16, 2018. This is an opportunity for users in the state of Florida to meet and troubleshoot, network, discuss state and regional issues, clarify and learn about the latest Therap releases. We welcome you to join our user group meeting to discuss how Therap will work for individuals receiving services through the Florida Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD), Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA), Florida Developmental Disabilities Council, to name a few. Learn how Florida Intellectual and developmental disabilities providers are using Therap to generate professional claims for Florida Medicaid while complying with Florida’s ADT Billing rules. Therap team members Maureen O’Connell and Tricia Woods will be at hand to answer technical questions and transmit the group’s consensus state needs and requirements to the Therap development team for review. Lunch will be provided for our registered attendees. We look forward to seeing you there!
The Department of Labor (DOL) published a Final Rule on October 1, 2013 extending minimum wage and overtime pay protections under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to most home care workers (who may have job titles such as home health aide or personal care assistant) who provide essential assistance to people with disabilities and older adults. On August 21, 2015, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a decision upholding the Final Rule. On Friday, September 18th from 2:00-3:00pm Eastern Time, senior leadership from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division and Office of the Solicitor will hold a webinar to discuss the Home Care Final Rule. Presenters will provide an overview of the Final Rule as well as the Department’s guidance regarding joint employment in domestic service employment under the FLSA and the application of the FLSA to shared living programs. Our comments will address questions we have received from states, including about the home care litigation.
