Memorial Hermann Healthcare System is committed to providing all services in full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and guidelines, as well as with its own policies and procedures. Memorial Hermann is particularly sensitive to requirements applicable to federal and state healthcare programs and the submission of accurate bills for all services provided. Compliance by vendors, contractors and consultants conducting business on behalf of Memorial Hermann or in the Memorial Hermann work environment is important to Memorial Hermann’s overall compliance efforts.
In accordance with the requirements of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, Memorial Hermann has developed False Claims Policies. These policies state that Memorial Hermann is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations and supports the efforts of federal and state authorities in identifying incidents of fraud and/or abuse and has the necessary procedures in place to prevent, detect, report and correct incidents of fraud and/or abuse in accordance with contractual, regulatory and statutory requirements. As a contractor or agent of Memorial Hermann, you must comply with the Memorial Hermann False Claims Policies which are modeled after the state and federal policies.
For your convenience, links to the two Memorial Hermann False Claims Policies (Liability for False or Fraudulent Claims and Texas False Claims Act Policy), the Memorial Hermann Standards of Conduct, and the federal and state websites are provided below. We assume you will adhere to our policies and procedures unless we hear from you to the contrary. If you are unable to comply with these policies, please contact Charles Bumpass, Chief Compliance Officer at 713-338-4113, 713-338-4307 (fax), or Charles.Bumpass@memorialhermann.org.
