Healthcare costs continue to escalate, due in part to fraud, waste and abuse (FWA). This FWA can have serious negative consequences on patients and medical practices.

This course is not intended to replace Medicare Provider Agreement compliance program and training requirements for Parts C and D plan sponsors.
