2010 Establishing an Effective Compliance Program-Fraud Waste and Abuse Training for DMEPOS, Medicare Part C and Part D Providers.
CMS requires that Medicare Part C and Part D Providers and all entities they partner with to provide annual fraud, waste and abuse training to their employees. CMS also requires DMEPOS providers to provide similar training annually to all employees in order to meet and maintain accreditation requirements. This program has been prepared to meet these CMS requirements.
This course will describe the role of CMS, the elements of a Compliance Program, pertinent laws and regulations and definitions and examples of fraud, waste and abuse. It will also cover reporting obligations and mechanisms and describe the difference between a Compliance Program and a Corporate Integrity Agreement. All employees should complete this training upon hire and then annually.
