Why the training is required and how to complete the required compliance attestation
Review and confirmation of the SNP and Medicaid-related training materials help practitioners comply with state and federal law, other government requirements and Humana's policies and procedures. Therefore, applicable parties must share the required information with their employees and, when applicable, with nonemployees with whom they contract as individuals and any subcontracted entities that support any of the following Humana plan types: Medicare, Medicaid (Humana Healthy Horizons), and/or Medicare-Medicaid dual special needs plans.
There are separate attestations for SNP training and the Medicaid states, but each attestation should be completed at the contract level. That is, each practitioner in an organization with a direct contract with Humana must separately complete the required attestation. However, if a practitioner is contracted with Humana only through a group contract, the organization will need to have a person responsible for compliance complete the required attestation. Please note that if an organization performs multiple functions for Humana, its compliance contact may receive an additional notification from Humana; the organization is only required to complete each applicable attestation once per year.
Any contracted party needing to complete a Humana attestation may do so online via Humana's secure compliance website. To access the website, the contracted party represented must be registered on , opens new window

Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA)
If your organization supports Humana’s Medicare Advantage plans, prescription drug plans and/or Medicaid plans, CMS and Humana require that your employees be trained on FWA at orientation and annually thereafter.

Please remember to complete the compliance requirements within 30 days of notification.
If a practitioner, or anyone employed by or contracted with a provider contracted with Humana, suspects actions of noncompliance and/or fraud, waste and abuse, he or she must report it immediately. This may be done confidentially via the Ethics Help Line at 877-5THE KEY (877-584-3539), the , opens new window site or a separate, preferred method of the contracted party that must then forward the information to Humana in a timely manner.
