Required Cultural Competency Training for Participating Providers
5/2/2022 • Posted by Provider Relations

The New York State Department of Health (DOH) has approved training offered by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Minority Health education program, Think Cultural Health, to fulfill the requirement for provider annual cultural competency training. The training is online, free, and offers several provider specific programs accessible at the following link: Education - Think Cultural Health (hhs.gov).


New York State previously approved cultural competency training for behavioral health providers (see: https://omh.ny.gov/omhweb/bho/docs/cultural_competency_curriculum.pdf ). Therefore, behavioral health providers, may utilize either the Think Cultural Health or the approved BH training to meet this requirement.


Once the cultural competency training has been completed, providers need to verify completion of the program by emailing the Cultural Competency Attestation Form to CulturalCompetencyTrainingAttestation@fideliscare.org. Please be sure to complete this required Cultural Competency Training on or before October 1, 2022, and then annually thereafter.


If you have any questions, please contact our Provider Call Center at 1-888-FIDELIS (1-888-343-3547) or your local Provider Relations Specialist.
