UTMB has recently signed a new contract with a Medicare Advantage plan, which requires our employees to adhere to specific training requirements on health care fraud, waste and abuse, particularly as it relates to Medicare Parts C & D. Since UTMB already provides fraud and abuse training through our compliance education program, there will only be a few minor changes to our current training requirements.
- All UTMB employees and students will be required to acknowledge the Standards of Conduct Guide annually. The online acknowledgment will be available via the online training system, https://training.utmb.edu/, under the Assigned Forms section on your My Assignment page. Currently, employees and students are only required to complete this once during their orientation period.
- Additional information regarding CMS Parts C & D will be added to the Clinical Compliance Training, which is currently assigned to most clinical and patient billing employees.
Please contact the Office of Institutional Compliance at 409-747-8700 with any questions or concerns.
