AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™

This WBT course is based on information from the Office of Inspector General's A Roadmap for New Physicians. It reviews the five most important Federal fraud and abuse laws that apply to physicians: the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Physician Self-Referral Law, the civil monetary penalties law, and the exclusion statute. The training also assists physicians in understanding how to comply with these Federal laws by identifying "red flags" that could lead to potential liability in law enforcement and administrative actions.
