Medicare Advantage plans requiring waste, fraud, and abuse training

    Default Medicare Advantage plans requiring waste, fraud, and abuse training
    Exam Training Packages
    My provider got notice from his national organization the if the provider participates in a Medicare Advantage plan that the provider and their relevant staff members (such as staff involved in billing and coding) will have to participate in CMS required waste, fraud, and abuse training under a law regulating Mediare Advantage plans plans that became effective on January 1, 2009. Has anyone else heard of this? If so will this training be with each Medicare Advantage plan the physician participates in or just one; since the Medicare Advantage plan will require documentation of this training.

    Thank you,
