ArchCare Code of Conduct
The First-Tier, Downstream and Related Entities (FDR) Code of Ethics (Code) is focused on Medicare Part C & Part D along with Medicaid. The Code is an important segment of ArchCare’s overall Compliance Program. The Code provides FDR employees with the 1) ethical standards required in the delivery of Medicare and Medicaid products, 2) policy and procedure for reporting violations of the Code to the Medicare or Medicaid Compliance Officer and where applicable, to either the CMS designee, state agency, or law enforcement, 3) FDR’s commitment to comply with all applicable Federal and State regulations, and 4) details on disciplinary actions that can be imposed on an employee who fails to comply with the Code.
Compliance, Fraud, Waste and Abuse Training
The Compliance, Fraud, Waste, and Abuse training presentation is designed for First-Tier, Downstream and Related Entities (FDR) and addresses:
- The need to meet the CMS requirement for Medicare Advantage Organizations and Part D Sponsors to provide training materials to their First Tier, Downstream, and Related Entities.

HIPAA Compliance Training
The HIPAA Compliance training is necessary for individuals who will be viewing PHI or PII. It is also necessary that we participate in this type of training annually to be able to provide our regulatory agencies the evidence to show each individual has completed a formal compliance HIPAA training program.
