Class A Contractor Compliance

Madison County is committed to providing the highest quality services and conducting our business with honesty and integrity and in conformance with all Federal and State laws, regulations, interpretations thereof, and the County’s Code of Conduct. We expect that the people who do business with our organization will support these efforts as well.

Certain types of contractors, subcontractors, independent contractors or agencies fall into the County's "Class A Contractor" category, and are considered "Affected Individuals". Class A Contractors are defined as any contractor, subcontractor, independent contractor or agent who, on behalf of the County (1) furnishes or otherwise authorizes the furnishing of Medicare and/or Medicaid health care items or services; (2) performs billing or coding functions; or (3) provides administrative or consultative services, goods, or services that are significant and material, are directly related to a health care provision, and/or are included in, or are a necessary component of, providing items or services of Medicaid-funded programs; or (4) is involved in the monitoring of health care services provided by the County; or (5) is determined by Madison County to be affected by any of its compliance risk areas as identified in NYCRR § 521-1.3(d) and set forth in Attachment 4 of the Corporate Compliance Plan
