After completing the orientation you must also complete an attestation.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires all care providers who treat patients enrolled in a Special Needs Plan (SNP) to complete annual Model of Care (MOC) training.
Must be completed by: Providers and staff who render routine care to members who are enrolled in the Special Needs Plan (i.e. MD, DO, ARNP, RN, LPN, etc.). After completing the orientation you must also complete an attestation.
Must be completed by: Providers and staff (i.e. MD, DO, ARNP, RN, LPN, Administrators, Office Managers, Medical Assistants, Receptionists, Medical Record Coordinators, Referral Coordinators, etc.).
General Compliance and/or, Fraud, Waste and Abuse Training must be completed by: Providers and all staff (I.e., MD, DO, ARNP, RN, LPN, Administrators, Office Managers, Medical Assistant, Receptionists, Medical Record Coordinators, Referral Coordinators, etc.). You must also submit an annual Attestation to CHPW to attest that training has been completed.

CMS requires the following to be completed every year:
- Complete General Compliance and/or Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA) Training.
- Maintain individual training documentation for all staff members (i.e. sign-in sheets, electronic certification, etc.).
- Submit an Attestation form to CHPW, attesting that training requirements have been met.
As stated by CMS, there is one exception to the Fraud, Waste and Abuse training and education requirement. CMS implemented a “deeming” exception for an entity or an individual who is enrolled in Medicare Part A or B. This means that your training requirement for Fraud, Waste and Abuse is satisfied if you are enrolled in Medicare Part A or B; therefore, your annual attestation would only apply to General Compliance.
Visit our FAQ page for detailed answers to important and commonly asked questions about completing the General Compliance and/or Fraud, Waste and Abuse training, education, and provider attestation form.
Providers and staff whose health or administrative job functions relate to Apple Health (Medicaid), Medicare Advantage, or CHNW Cascade Select members are required to read about CHPW’s Compliance Program.
More information regarding compliance can be found in the Provider Manual.
