Course Overview

False claims and promises. Unnecessary costs. Inadequate care — they’re all on the rise. And when it comes to providing an exceptional experience, compliance is non-negotiable. That’s why the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) require thorough training for all professionals who provide services to Medicare or Medicaid participants.

CareerStep’s Medical Fraud, Waste, and Abuse course highlights the steep cost of FWA, teaches the value of ethics, and provides proof of training for compliance purposes.
