Free half-day training on compliance best practices is available through the Office of Inspector General (OIG) in six cities beginning Feb. 16.
The trainings will be offered in the following places:

  • Houston, Texas – February 16
  • Tampa, Fla. – March 2
  • Kansas City, Mo. – March 23
  • Baton Rouge, La. – April 12
  • Denver, Colo. – May 3
  • Washington, DC – May 18

Enroll via the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Workshops have limited seating.
The CMS watchdog says it is offering the workshops to help providers understand the law and the consequences of violating it, cultivate a culture of compliance within an organization, and inform providers of where to go should a compliance issue arise. Trainings are developed to address issues faced by local audiences.

    Does this seminar offer any CEU’s?

  2. Lori Hurwitz says:

    Do you have to be certified to attend? I recently graduated from Penn Foster and have ordered everything to take the CPC exam. I am currently an AAPC member.

  3. Stephanie says:

    Does anyone know if this seminar will offer more than what we learned during the annual conference? It seems to only be a half day seminar. Wonder if it’s worth the money and time to travel to Tampa all the way from Atlanta.

  4. Kathleen says:

    Why not offer this as a webinar for those of us that can’t travel to the sites? Looks like nothing is offered in the NE. I have to agree with Stephanie, travel is a huge expense for a 1/2 day.

  5. Helen Spaustat says:

    Will there be CEU’s offered for this workshop?
    Thank you,

    I agree with Kathleen, it does not make any sense in this day and time to do anything OTHER than a webinar. More accesible to all and no expenses for CMS… They’ve chosen an expensive solution for a relatively small audience. Disappointing.
