Education for Independent Med Staff and those working less than 160 hours

    We are revising our compliance education policy and I'm wondering what others require of independent medical staff (including telemedicine providers).  In addition, I've been reviewing 2019 and 2020 Corporate Integrity Agreements and noticed that they exclude "covered persons" from the education requirements if they work less than 160 hours per year.  Do others exclude individuals working fewer than "x" hours from compliance education requirements?

    Thank you in advance for your insight!
