MMO is committed to promoting a culture of integrity and ethical behavior
MMO has adopted a Corporate Compliance Program to assist our organization in the successful, effective, and ongoing development of a compliance process as outlined by the U.S. Sentencing Commission and the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General.
The focus of this compliance program is maintaining effective internal controls that recognize and establish adherence to existing and newly issued law, regulation, and governance with regard to federal and state statutes, and program requirements of federal, state, and private health plans.
The goals of this process are many. They include establishment of and maintaining a culture that promotes prevention, detection and resolution of conduct that is not in conformance with law and regulation; education as to our organization's ethical and business policy; and development of benchmarks that allow us to establish and monitor compliance.
