The Insurance Education's HCAFA designation helps you understand types of health insurance fraud and abuse (provider fraud, consumer fraud, agent/broker/employee fraud); the impact of fraud on various coverage; legal issues; and methods of detection, investigation, and prevention.

To acquire the HCAFA designation, you must pass two mandatory online courses and two fraud webinars.

Two Fraud webinars*
