(Recorded Webinar) Medicare Audits & Common Program Integrity Issues

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) uses several types of contractors, such as MACs and UPICs, to promote Medicare program integrity and perform audit functions. This webinar will provide an overview of the Medicare contractors and their audit “jurisdiction.”

Join FLTF to understand the different audit contractors under CMS, discuss common risk areas for Medicare programs that have been subject to audits and investigations in the past, and identify strategies to update aspects of your compliance program and/or self-audit efforts.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
