What is Fraud Waste and Abuse Training?

In response to the rise in the number of health care fraud and abuse cases and the escalating cost of health care services, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has instituted compulsory training and compliance programs for individuals and organizations who provide health or administrative services to Medicare or Medicaid enrollees or who receive payments from the Medicare/Medicaid system. These training and compliance programs help establish fundamental expectations for compliance, disclosure, transparency, and quality of care.

Compliance is required for all Part C and D first tier, downstream, related and delegated entities, including Medicare Advantage providers who administer the Part D drug benefit or provide health care services to Medicare Advantage enrollees such as:

  • Network Providers including Hospitals, Primary Care Providers, Ancillary Providers, Specialists, Independent Provider Associations and Medical Groups
  • Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs)
  • Pharmacies and pharmacists
  • Subcontractors (e.g. Claim Processing Firms)

Medicare/Medicaid Fraud Waste and Abuse Compliance for Organizations

The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is the government agency that manages the public component of the U.S. healthcare system: Medicare and Medicaid. The CMS has instituted compulsory training and compliance programs for individuals and organizations that work with them. These training and compliance programs help establish fundamental expectations for compliance, disclosure, transparency, and quality of care.

Medicare/Medicaid Fraud Waste and Abuse compliance for an organization revolves around putting in place compliance programs and training to detect, correct, report, and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse within the Medicare/Medicaid system.

What is involved in becoming Medicare/Medicaid Fraud Waste and Abuse compliant?

There are 3 parts to FWA compliance for an organization:

  • 1. Providing a Fraud Waste and Abuse awareness training to all employees of the organization
  • 2. Implementing a formal compliance program to detect, correct, report, and prevent potential fraud, waste and abuse
  • 3. Training of a compliance officer (someone in the organization that is going to take responsibility for Fraud Waste and Abuse compliance at your organization)

Part 1 is handled through our organizational training which allows you to roll out training to your employees as a self paced online training that they can each take at their own schedule. Our system trains, tests, and generates a 1 year certificate for compliance record keeping.

Parts 2 and 3 are handled by our compliance documentation kits. At the same time your designated compliance officer is implementing the required documents, we are also training them through a "hands on learn by doing" approach. The theory behind our method is if your compliance officer built it, they will be able to maintain it going forward.
