As discussed in our March 14 blog post, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) had scheduled a webinar for today on the Status of Pending Compliance Evaluations of Entities that Participate in TRICARE Networks.
That webinar was cancelled today without prior notice or explanation. In response to inquiries about the change, OFCCP’s only response has been that “[i]t has been cancelled. The rescheduled date will be posted on the DOL Events Calendar.”
OFCCP’s position regarding TRICARE as a basis for jurisdiction over medical providers thus remains unclear. Providers with pending audits that were apparently based on an assertion of jurisdiction due to TRICARE participation may want to review the action items outlined in our March 14 blog.
