Preventing Fraud, Waste, and Abuse

Medicare Fraud Waste Abuse Training

Preventing Fraud, Waste, and Abuse

This course (15 mins) discusses how to prevent Medicare fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA) in healthcare.

Many Medicare FWA courses are needlessly long (often 45 mins to 1 hour).  FWA courses are also often dry and bloated with unnecessary information.

In contrast, Professor Solove has created a short streamlined course that provides the important points in an engaging and clear way. The course explains the definitions of fraud, waste, and abuse; how to look out for FWA; and why FWA must be reported and how to do so. Professor Solove emphasizes that many suspicious irregularities are actually instances of poor documentation. The course thus discusses the importance of timely, accurate, and complete documentation.

Topics covered also include:

  • General Compliance
  • The False Claims Act (FCA)
  • The Health Care Fraud Statute
  • The Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS)
  • The Physician Self-Referral Prohibition Statute (Stark Law)

The course is about 15 minutes long has 4 quiz questions.

    About TeachPrivacy and Our Training Philosophy

    Daniel Solove Privacy Awareness Training TeachPrivacy was founded by Professor Daniel J. Solove, the leading expert on privacy and data security law. He is deeply involved in the creation of all training programs because he believes that training works best when made by subject-matter experts and by people with extensive teaching experience.

    According to Professor Solove: “Great training isn’t about slickness or tricks. It is about teaching. The goal is to make people understand, care, and remember. Great training is made with genuine passion – to make people love training, it must be made with love. Excellent substance is essential. The material must be explained clearly, understandably, and concretely. The content must be short and to the point – and it must be engaging. Slickness and gimmicks can’t compensate for lackluster substance.”

    TeachPrivacy provides privacy awareness training, information security awareness training, phishing training, HIPAA training, FERPA training, PCI training, as well as training on many other privacy and security topics.

    Professor Solove is a law professor at George Washington University Law School.
