Report concerns related to potential fraud & abuse
Consistent with the OIG’s Compliance Guidance, HCN’s Compliance Hotline is a confidential reporting mechanism that enables employees, volunteers, and others to voice concerns related to potential fraud and abuse.
The Compliance Hotline:
Is available to HCN members only at the Better and Best levels of membership
Consists of a toll-free number, email address and mailing address that HCN members can use as their own internal reporting hotline
Provides anonymity and confidentiality, if requested
Includes materials necessary to promote the availability of the hotline service to the HCN member’s staff and volunteers
In the event of a call or other communication to the Compliance Hotline, HCN contacts the hospice’s Compliance Officer in writing and also provides quarterly reports.
