*IMPORTANT: Ultimately, continuing education is the responsibility of the individual social worker—not the Medicare Rights Center as CE provider, the licensing board, or a professional association.
- It will be up to you to understand your state's requirements for continuing education, including how your state calculates CE time, which courses will not be accepted, etc.
- Your state's licensing/certification board will always have the ultimate approval about whether the continuing education courses you took will be approved.
- You must submit your course's Certificate of completion to your board to receive your CE hour credit.
- If you don't know what your state's CE requirements are, it is your responsibility to find out by contacing your board.
