The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has mandated that Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Program sponsors, such as BlueCross, are responsible for providing compliance training on an annual basis. Unfortunately, the training you completed last year does not satisfy this mandate. In order to meet the CMS training requirements, we have loaded a training course to the Learning Management System (LMS).
To complete the course, log in to My Business ManagerSM. The course is listed under the “In Progress Training” category on the left side of your LMS home page. Click on the green arrow next to the course. You will be glad to know there is no test for this course.
All agents must also electronically submit via LMS an attestation of course completion.
All agents must complete training and submit the attestation by March 1, 2011. After March 1, we will hold the Medicare Advantage commission payment until the agent completes the training and submits the attestation.
