The DOL proposed changes to the white collar exemptions will go into effect in December, 2016. These changes will impact the way home health, hospice and private duty providers pay their registered nurses, therapists, management and executives. As these aforementioned changes will later impact areas such as staff exempt/not exempt from overtime, which in turn is going to affect payroll – the impact needs to be considered by the providers now. With homecare reimbursement declining and provider budgets already stretched to the breaking point, the consequences of unanticipated payroll cost increase will be large.
This session by expert speaker Robert W. Markette, Jr., CHC, will review the white collar exemptions and their application in home health, hospice and private duty. The session will then address the changes in the notice and consider several strategies providers can use to prepare for these changes.
