POLICY STATEMENT ON COMPLIANCE
are committed to conducting our business practices with
integrity, honesty, and compassion, and in compliance with the
laws and regulations that govern our operations.
In order to achieve this commitment, we have periodically
adopted policies and procedures that are intended to guide our
actions and protect against unlawful activity.
Our Code of Conduct has been specifically designed to
provide the necessary guidance that will allow each of us to
perform our jobs with the highest level of integrity, and
thereby avoid even the appearance of unlawful behavior.
However, we must all make personal commitments to adhere to
these guiding principles and to comply with our policies,
procedures and regulatory requirements.
If you have questions or concerns about what is
appropriate conduct, or if you become aware of any situation
that may jeopardize the ethical integrity of our organization, I
must ask that you please refer to the Code of Conduct, or
promptly contact your supervisor, another member of management,
or our Compliance Officer, Eileen Dudgeon, at
To the extent possible, all communication to the
Compliance Officer will be treated confidentially.
Resources Corporation depends on all of us to carry out its
values and achieve its mission of responding to the healthcare
needs of our communities. We
must all commit ourselves to conducting business ethically and
in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations.
Resources Corporation implemented its corporate compliance
program early in 2002, in anticipation that the government’s
mounting focus on compliance would reach the medical
transportation industry, and, more specifically, third party
billing agencies. As a forerunner in the implementation of a compliance
program, MedBill has committed to:
Appointing a compliance
officer and forming a compliance committee to oversee
corporate compliance activities;
investigations for prospective employees, subcontractors,
clients, and vendors consistent with The Office of
Inspector General’s List of Excluded
Individuals/Entities and the General Services
Administration’s List of Parties Excluded from Federal
Procurement and Non-procurement Programs database;
anonymous reporting mechanism for employees to report any
incidence of unethical activity or fraud and abuse
Providing its employees

and Medicaid payer’s requirements for billing;
Providing its employees

OIG’s Compliance Program Guidance for Ambulance
Developing policies and
