CMS-Required Training for Dual-Special Needs Plans

November 14, 2018

Providers who treat dually-eligible Medicare and Medicaid members are required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to complete an annual Dual-Special Needs Plan (DSNP) training on DSNP plan benefits and requirements, including coordination of care and Model of Care elements.

You may also recognize this program as Blue Cross Medicare Advantage Dual Care (HMO-SNP)SM.

Because it is important for providers to complete the required training, Blue Cross Medicare Advantage will inform providers of their specific DSNP Model of Care (MOC) training requirements and expectations. Providers can submit proof of completion by:

  1. Completing a computer based training module issued to them and/or their provider group or,
  2. Submitting an attestation after a live training provided by a Network Representative

Blue Cross Medicare Advantage will retain these attestations in each provider’s file. The adherence of the required DSNP training is critical to our member's health and care.

If you have any questions about the training or would like a one-on-one training session, please reach out to your assigned Provider Network Representative at 1-800-567-8540.
