A Message From the Chairman of the Board, Scott Levy
On behalf of the South Carolina Home Care & Hospice Association’s Board of Directors and the Professional Development Committee, I want to personally invite you to attend the 2020 SCHCHA Annual Conference. It is a dynamic, challenging and exciting time for home health, hospice, palliative care and home care providers. With the impact of COVID 19 and a “new normal”, home and community-based services are at the forefront of transforming care around patient and family wishes and the needs of the broader health care system. Our value proposition has never been greater and at no point in time has the need to be “Virtually Unstoppable” been more important.
We are proud to offer a range of enlightening and diverse sessions from national, regional and state presenters crossing the auspices of our growing industry. I would like to thank each of you for attending our virtual conference this year and for your engagement in this platform to bring us all together. Your leadership, vision and collective voice and experience will help us continue to be proactive and pivot to a future filled with significant opportunities for our industry.
Scott Levy, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, Amedisys

This session brings up-to-the minute details on the legislative, regulatory and legal matters that directly impact home care. Don’t miss this opportunity to benefit from the insight of one of the industry’s leading voices and get your questions answered.
Bill Dombi President, National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC)
Bill Dombi is the President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice. He previously served as the Vice President for Law at NAHC. As a key part of his responsibilities, Bill specializes in legal, legislative, and regulatory advocacy on behalf of patients and providers of home health and hospice care. With nearly 40 years of experience in health care law and policy, Bill has been involved in virtually all legislative and regulatory efforts affecting home care and hospice since 1975, including the expansion of the Medicare home health benefit in 1980, the formation of the hospice benefit in 1983, the institution on Medicare PPS for home health in 2000, and the national health care reform legislation in 2010. With litigation, Dombi was lead counsel in the landmark lawsuit that reformed the Medicare home health services benefit, challenges to HMO home care cutbacks for high-tech home care patients, lawsuits against Medicaid programs for inadequate payment rates, along with current lawsuits challenging the Medicare home health face-to-face encounter rule and the Department of labor changes to the overtime rules under the Fair labor Standards Act.
In addition to litigation, Bill offers extensive community and professional educational services through lectures, publications, teleconferences, and videos. He is the Editor and lead author of Home Care & Hospice Law: A Handbook for Executives, the only comprehensive legal treatise on the topic. His lectures include market trends in home care, compliance, risk management, patient rights, fraud and abuse, health care reimbursement, legislative and regulatory reforms, and legal issues in telehealth services.
