Mandatory Training for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) require mandatory training for all associates of organizations that provide CMS benefit services. Two training modules are required: 1) Medicare Parts C and D General Compliance Training, and 2) Combating Medicare Parts C and D Fraud, Waste and Abuse.
All associates, contractors, physicians (who are employed, contracted, or hold privileges at a MedStar facility), and temporary employees who perform services on-site at any MedStar facility or are directly or indirectly involved in caring for Medicare patients (e.g., billing, registration) must complete these training modules in the SiTEL system no later than December 15, 2017.
The trainings are in the SiTEL Learning Management System for your completion. Under “My Curriculum,” there should be a listing for Medicare Parts C and D Training 2017, which contains both training modules. This training must be completed by December 15, 2017. These training modules are required for all MHRI employees.
Take Action Now! Courses are available through SiTEL.
