The Post-Acute Care Continuum (PACC) Task Force is dedicated to focusing on the many legal issues raised within the post-acute care continuum setting, which includes skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, assisted living facilities, dementia units, brain injury units, continuing care retirement communities, home and community based services, rehabilitation and restorative therapy, out-patient services, pharmacy, hospice, and more. The Task Force independently serves its members but also routinely collaborates with other ABA Health Law Section Interest Groups to address the wide variety of legal issues that directly intersect with and impact Post-Acute Care health care providers, including but not limited to liability/risk management, regulatory, compliance, licensure, corporate transactions, privacy, employment, and reimbursement. The Task Force is committed to providing its members with useful industry and legal related information and resources, continuing education, free member benefits, and opportunities to speak, publish, organize, lead, and network on a national level.
