The North Texas Healthcare Compliance Professionals Association (NTHCPA) invites members and other interested health care compliance professionals to join us on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for our Study Group Luncheon featuring a program on “Employee Benefit Security Administration Insights On Healthcare Organization’s Health & Other Employee Benefit Plan Rights & Responsibilities Under Employee Retirement Income Security Act” from U.S. Department of Labor Employee Benefit Security Administration (EBSA) Investigator Kristi Gotcher.

The health and other employee benefit plan rules of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) generally offer important protections and create significant compliance challenges for health care organizations and providers.  On one hand, health care providers generally rely heavily on their or their patient’s ability to obtain health benefits promised under employer or union-sponsored health plans covering their patients to help reimbursement provider charges.  Meanwhile, health care providers and their leaders also can incur significant liability for failing to comply with ERISA’s rules when establishing and maintaining health or other employee benefit programs for their own employees.

Drawing on her involvement as investigator with the Department of Labor agency primarily responsible for both interpreting and enforcing ERISA’s rules, EBSA Ms. Gotcher will share key updates and insights on both how ERISA and the EBSA can help patients and providers enforce benefit rights under ERISA-covered health plans and key health and highlight employee benefit compliance responsibilities that health care organizations and their leaders need to ensure that their own health and other employee benefit programs meet to avoid violating ERISA.

About the Speaker

Kristi A. Gotcher is an Investigator with the United States Department of Labor, Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) in the Dallas Regional Office.   Kristi began working for EBSA in the Dallas Regional Office in November 2007 as a Benefits Advisor.  She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Social Political Relations from St. Edwards University and a J.D. from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M University School of Law).  Ms. Gotcher is licensed to practice law in the State of Texas.

The North Texas Healthcare Compliance Professionals Association (NTHCPA) invites members and other interested health care compliance professionals faced with these and other challenges to join us on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for our Study Group Luncheon featuring Emotional Intelligence Coach Jane Ryan speaking on “Physician Conflict Resolution: It Happens.”

WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, HOW

Conflicts among physicians or between physicians and others within an organization present significant risks and challenges for health care organizations impacting everything from quality, patient care, peer review, employment or shareholder liability, Joint Commission accreditation, recruitment and turnover and more. While most health care organizations and providers recognize the importance of preventing and managing these issues, finding or developing workable practical skills and strategies to keep or take the heat out of physician relationships is much more difficult. Ms. Ryan will lead a practical skill-development focused workshop to help health care compliance and other health care leaders understand and hone their skills for preventing, challenging and managing conflict among physicians.


  • Who is Negatively Impacted by Conflict?

  • What Information is Important to Learn?

  • When is Conflict Disruptive and Damaging?

  • What are strategies for institutionalizing these skills within your organization?
