HEAT Provider Compliance Training

Training resources resulting from the work of the Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT), an HHS/DOJ initiative.

In Spring 2011, HHS-OIG and its government partners provided in-person trainings in Houston, Tampa, Kansas City, Baton Rouge, Denver, and Washington, D.C. The trainings focused on the realities of Medicare and Medicaid fraud and the importance of implementing an effective compliance program.

These videos (averaging about four minutes each) cover major health care fraud and abuse laws, the basics of health care compliance programs, and what to do when a compliance issue arises.
