Combating Fraud, Waste, and Abuse is Everyone’s Responsibility


Every year, billions of dollars are improperly spent because of medical fraud, waste, and abuse1 (FWA). It affects everyone, including you. All Medicare-contracted providers and their employees are required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to complete FWA training when newly hired, and annually thereafter.

To assist you in meeting this annual training requirement, see Required Medicare Training: Fraud, Waste & Abuse. For more information about FWA, refer to EmblemHealth Provider Manual’s Fraud and Abuse chapter. Detection, correction, and prevention of FWA is everyone’s responsibility.

For more information about FWA, contact EmblemHealth Provider Customer Service at 866-447-9717, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday
