Never miss a training opportunity

We know our providers have busy schedules and may not have the time to participate in every live event. If you or your colleagues were unable to attend one of our past Medicare educational webcasts, you still have the opportunity to learn about the topics covered during the training session.
It’s the next best thing to being there -- download a webcast recording.

Take advantage of 24-hour access to free online training

We do our best to provide the Medicare training and information you need -- when it fits into your busy schedule. So, in addition to our live training events, we also offer you the advantage of self-paced, free online courses that will allow you and your staff to train when and where it is most convenient for you. In addition, our comprehensive course catalog allows you to find the Medicare training that fits your specific needs, and several of our online courses now offer CEUs.

Join us for our next exciting Medicare educational event

We are continuing to plan even more interactive educational events to keep you up-to-date on the latest Medicare issues and to help inform, educate, and enhance the performance of your billing staff. Check our schedule of events each week, and register for the training that interests you. You’ll have the opportunity to expand your knowledge of Medicare and to fully understand program changes -- before and after their implementation.
You’ll also learn how to take full advantage of available provider resources, have your questions answered by our Medicare experts, and obtain CEU credits for participation in eligible events. Note: Not all First Coast Medicare educational events are eligible for CEU credit. Please check with your licensing or accrediting organization for specific CEU eligibility and documentation requirements.
