Preventing and detecting fraud, waste and abuse activities is an important fiduciary responsibility of Madison County. Madison County meets the criteria established by the Office of the New York State Medicaid Inspector General, which requires us to implement and maintain an effective Corporate Compliance Program. Please see 18 NYCRR Part 521 Fraud, Waste and Abuse Prevention for additional information about this requirement.
As such, Madison County adopted a Corporate Compliance Plan, effective December 29, 2009, to help ensure that the organization maintains a high level of honesty and ethical behavior in all aspects of its delivery of services and relations with clients, third party payers, representatives, agents and independent contractors.
It is our intent to reasonably design, implement and maintain an effective Corporate Compliance Program that will disclose, prevent and detect and correct misconduct, including non-compliance with Medicare and Medicaid requirements, as well as measures that prevent, detect and correct fraud, waste and abuse. All affected individuals are expected to understand and adhere to the Corporate Compliance Plan, applicable policies and procedures, including the Compliance Code of Conduct, as well as Madison County's Code of Ethics.
