Report Fraud, Waste & Abuse
Staff, providers, contractors, vendors and patients/members of our medical group can confidentially report concerns about suspected issues of illegal, prohibited, unethical, and irresponsible acts to the compliance officer/privacy officer.
Employees and providers are required by law, by HPN and our codes of conduct, compliance plan, and company policies to notify the compliance officer/privacy officer about any suspected fraud, waste, abuse, and noncompliance.
A confidential reporting system is provided by the company’s’ compliance officer and privacy officer. An individual may leave a message on the confidential hotline, via email, mail, or fax. If a call back number is left, the compliance officer will return the call within 24–72 hours.
Anonymous and Confidential
Providers or members may remain anonymous when calling the confidential hotline. If the individual opts to remain anonymous, no effort will be made to identify the caller. If individuals choose to provide their name, the report will still be considered confidential and privileged to the legal extent possible.
Employees cannot and will not be retaliated against for contacting the compliance officer or confidential hotline in good faith to report any suspected fraud, waste, abuse or noncompliance.
All calls will be taken seriously and investigated in a timely manner.
