Reminder: Annual Required Medicare Training

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires providers and staff who provide services to a Medicare Advantage plan, or Medicare prescription drug plan patients, to complete Medicare Compliance Program training. This is required at the time of contracting and annually thereafter. This requirement applies to all provider office staff with access to Medicare patient information.

How to get started:

We developed a Medicare Compliance Program training course for you. Upon completion, you will get an attestation page to complete.

To take this course:

  1. Log in or register on the Aetna Education site. and register.
  2. Type 2013 in the Search field and click "Go."
  3. Click "Select" for the 2013 Aetna Medicare Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA) Attestation course*.

CMS also requires that providers complete Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA) training annually. CMS now offers a web-based training module that can be used to satisfy the FWA training requirement. You'll find directions to CMS's web-based training module in the Aetna Medicare Compliance Program training course.

* Providers are considered First Tier, as they have a contractual relationship with Aetna to deliver Part C or Part D Benefits. The sponsor's employees (including temporary workers and volunteers) and governing body members, as well as First Tier, Downstream & Related Entity (FDR) employees who have involvement in the administration or delivery of Parts C and D benefits must, at a minimum, receive FWA training within 90 days of initial hiring (or contracting in the case of FDRs), and annually thereafter.

The only exception is FDRs (who have met the FWA certification requirements through enrollment into Parts A or B of the Medicare program, or through accreditation as a supplier of point of sale durable medical equipment) who are deemed to have met the FWA training and education requirements.
