Compliance Training

Most physicians strive to work ethically, render quality medical care to their patients, and submit proper claims for payment. However, there have been instances when physicians either willingly or unknowingly submit claims fraudulently, creating the need for laws that combat fraud and abuse and ensure appropriate quality medical care.

This webpage includes information to assist physicians in understanding how to comply with Federal laws by identifying “red flags” that could lead to potential liability in law enforcement and administrative actions.

All physicians participating in certain Medicare and Medicaid programs must receive training about compliance with CMS program rules. Physicians are required to complete general compliance and fraud, waste and abuse (FWA) training within 90 days of their initial enrollment in Sequent and subsequently repeat the training annually.

The following links are training documents that physicians can access to satisfy their compliance training. Upon completion of the training material, physicians are required to sign the FWA Training Attestation Form and return it to the Sequent Credentialing department.
