Mount Carmel is not only committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients, but also to conducting business with integrity and in compliance with federal and state laws and regulations. Because we receive federal health care program funds, Mount Carmel is obligated to comply with the terms and requirements of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA). In accordance with the DRA, we include in our policies and provide all associates, agents and contractors detailed information regarding the False Claims Act as well as any applicable state civil and criminal laws intended to prevent and detect fraud, waste and abuse in federal health care programs. Furthermore, Mount Carmel’s Standards of Conduct prohibits submitting a false claim for payment from any health care program or insurance plan.
More information about the Mount Carmel Standards of Conduct, Mount Carmel Policies on Detecting and Preventing Fraud, Waste and Abuse and the Organizational Integrity Hotline are available on this site.
