Reference the Medicare Certification tip sheet for additional information and to ensure you complete all the required modules.

Annual General Compliance and FWA Training

If you have entered into a contract to provide services on behalf of Medica for health plan enrollees, you are subject to Federal requirements for first tier entities, downstream and related entities (FDRs), which includes annual Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA) and General Compliance Training.

How do I satisfy this requirement?

Who needs to complete this training?

  • Do non-licensed staff (e.g., administrative assistants, enrollment processors) working with Medica enrollees’ Protected Health Information (PHI) need to complete this training? Yes.
  • Do licensed staff who plan to complete 2023 Medicare Certification need to complete this training? No. Completing the 2023 Medicare Certification satisfies the General Compliance and FWA Training requirement.

Now that I know who needs to complete this training, what is the next step?

  • If you are listed as Head of Agency (HoA), you must attest on behalf of your entire agency that all licensed and applicable non-licensed staff has completed training. You must maintain a record of training for 10 years to show compliance with regulatory requirements. You may use the following form if needed to maintain this evidence. This should be retained by your office and must be made available upon request. DO NOT RETURN THIS FORM TO MEDICA, MAINTAIN FOR YOUR OWN RECORDS.
  • If you are an independent agent without staff, you do not need to complete the Attestation form

Remaining compliant through all beneficiary interactions is an important goal. It not only helps to avoid penalties and disciplinary actions, but also to better serve Medica’s current and potential members.

Below is a friendly reminder to help achieve this goal:

  • CMS prohibits engaging in or promoting activities that intend to target the MA OEP (January 1 to March 31) as an opportunity to make further sales.
  • During the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period, CMS prohibits calling or contacting former enrollees who have selected a new plan during the Annual Enrollment Period.
