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. In the event of a call or other communication to the Compliance Hotline, HCN provides a report to the hospice for follow-up. Quarterly reports are provided as well.
The Compliance Hotline:
Is available to all HCN member hospices
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, volunteers, patients
