In order to provide you the necessary education to meet regulatory and compliance requirements, Reappointment training includes only those elements required by a regulatory accrediting organization or necessary to understand Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines and reduce risk to you and the organization. Compliance training is mandatory for all providers applying for reappointment at UNC FP, UNC PN and UNC PN GP.
NOTE: UNC FP/School of Medicine Departmental Credentialing Coordinators or UNC PN and UNC PN GP Practice Managers should retain training documentation in your departmental files.
Refresher Training (All Providers)
For Summer and Fall 2022, Physician Compliance is piloting a new approach to Compliance refresher training that providers must complete to support reappointment. Providers at selected FP departments will receive a live “year end review” presentation on key regulatory, policy, and compliance program changes. Physician Compliance, Department Chairs, and Credentialing will partner to track attendance.
Other Options to Complete
If you are an FP provider who did not participate in the year end review pilot or you are a provider at UNC PN/GP, please instead complete the following modules in LMS. Dentists are exempt.
You may provide a copy of your LMS Training Transcript as needed to your FP Credentialing Coordinator or PN/GP Practice Manager.
|Training Module||Who Must Complete?|
|General Documentation and Billing Compliance||All providers
|General Evaluation and Management Coding and Compliance||Applicable for providers billing E/M services|
|Teaching Physician Guidelines for Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE||Applicable for Teaching Physicians supervising residents or medical students, except physicians taking the Online Specialty Training described below. APPs do not need to complete this training.|
