7.      Can an FDR be deemed (exempt) from having to provide general compliance and FWA training for its employees and downstream and related entities?

Answer:  Only FWA training can be deemed for FDRs that meet the FWA certification requirements through enrollment into Parts A or B of the Medicare program or through DMEPOS accreditation.  FDRs deemed from providing FWA training must still provide general compliance training and meet other CMS training requirements (see #7 for training requirements).
