If at anytime during employment, you have been, or believe that you have been, excluded from treating federal healthcare beneficiaries, you must immediately notify their supervisor that a violation exists, then a formal investigation shall be conducted and/or arranged for (including by legal counsel, as appropriate) by the Compliance Officer and/or the Legal Counsel. GIFTS AND BUSINESS COURTESIES You shall not solicit or accept from any individual or entity any gift of more than nominal value (normally greater than $75.00) which because of its source or value might influence your independent judgment in transactions involving our company. If you are uncertain if a gift violates this policy, then you should consult the Compliance Officer. Cash gifts in any amount are not permissible. Perishable and consumable gifts given to a department or group as part of a holiday party or business meeting with an individual or entity are appropriate.

Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, funds may not be offered or given to any officer or other employee of a customer or supplier or to any governmental official or employee (or to any third party if there is reason to believe that the funds will ultimately be offered or given to such person). This does not preclude reasonable and necessary token gratuities which are consistent with U.S. and local law and are within the limits established by Professional Accounts, LLC.

9 assist political parties or candidates for office unless approved by senior management. REPORTING If you become aware of a violation, suspected violation, questionable conduct, or questionable practice in violation of the Compliance Program or applicable law, you should immediately notify your supervisor and/or the Compliance Officer. Whenever you have a question or concern that cannot be readily addressed with your supervisor for whatever reason, you then should report the violation, suspected violation, questionable conduct, or questionable practice to the Compliance Officer. Our policy prohibits any retaliatory action for asking questions, raising concerns, or reporting inappropriate conduct. If you ever feel pressured or discriminated for reporting a Compliance issue, notify the Compliance Officer immediately. Failure to report suspected violations or failure to comply with applicable laws, rules, regulations or requirements of our Compliance Program could result in termination. TRAINING AND EDUCATION You are required to receive compliance training within the first 30 days of starting to work and at least annually thereafter. If you do not receive such training within this time period, you shall immediately notify the Compliance Officer. If your responsibilities touch on specific risk areas you should receive specialized training related to the specific compliance risks that may affect your department and or job. 4. TRAINING AND EDUCATION The Compliance Officer is responsible for assuring that the provisions of the Compliance Manual as relates to education and the obtaining of a signed acknowledgment (i.e. affirmation statements) are completed. This will include an annual audit to assure you received the required training. A. New and Promoted Employees On the day that any new Employee reports to work, that employee's immediate supervisor shall review the Compliance Manual with the employee and ensure that the employee substantially understands its provisions. The new employee shall then sign and date Affirmation Statement (in the form attached hereto). The affirmation statement shall be filed in the individual employee's personnel file. The same procedure shall be followed on the day any existing Employee is promoted to a new position. B. Annual Reaffirmation
10 You are required to re-affirm in writing each year your understanding and willingness to comply with the provisions of the Compliance Program. This will be reviewed annually to assure compliance. C. TERMINATING EMPLOYEES You are required to complete an exit interview when leaving our company. During this interview you will be asked to provide information relative to any compliance issues and will sign a form indicating that you were not aware of any, if you do not report any at the time of the exit interview. D. DISSEMINATION The Compliance Manual shall be disseminated to all each of you by your immediate supervisor on hire. Updates will be provided by the Compliance Officer to supervisors for distribution any time a change in the manual occurs. Supervisors will discuss the contents of the Compliance Manual with all employees under his or her immediate supervision for the purpose of confirming their understanding of the Compliance Manual. The supervisors shall record any compliance related matters disclosed during the discussions and report same to the Compliance Officer. Employees shall sign an Affirmation Statement that will be forwarded together with any disclosure information to the Compliance Officer. E. TRAINING INFORMATION The training information shall ensure that you are apprised of all applicable federal laws, regulations, and standards of ethical conduct, and the consequences that shall follow from any violation of those rules or the Compliance Program. This would include instruction into oversight of the program, Standards of Conduct, Reporting Mechanisms, Responsibilities, Investigative Process, Disciplinary Processes as well as department/job specific. 5. REPORTING MECHANISM There are multiple ways to question or report a compliance issue depending on what you are questioning, reporting and whether you want to remain anonymous in the process. Keep in mind that we do not allow retaliation for reporting a compliance concern. Identity Known Direct Person to Person contact - you will find that you can address many questions to your immediate supervisor, particularly if you are questioning why you must handle a specific part of your job in a set way. Compliance Officer directly at or through the hot line for organization type questions and for further understanding of answers already provided by a supervisor. Remember that the hotline does not show a name or phone number, you must leave a name if you expect a follow up on the results of your inquiry. Anonymous Call the Corporate Compliance Hotline at for any issue you need to present. This is a voice mail in our phone system that routes the mail to the Compliance Officers voice mail. No numbers are included.
11 When reporting in this manner be very specific as to type of problem, and details so that an investigation can occur. They re not billing correctly is not enough information to be able to investigate. State what the problem is, where occurring, and why you think it is a problem. Typed information sent directly to the Compliance Officer, (or in event preferred to Executive Director) Please keep in mind that should you elect to report anonymously, there is no way for the supervisor or the Compliance Officer to respond back to you, unless your complaint is correct and you see a change in procedure to correct the issue. 6. COMPLIANCE RISK AREAS Although not exhaustive, you should be aware of and specifically refrain from engaging in the following practices that have been identified as being susceptible to fraud, abuse, and mistakes: "Billing for items or services not actually rendered" which involves submitting a claim that represents that a provider performed a service all or part of which was simply not performed. Providing and seeking reimbursement for medically unnecessary services which are not warranted by the patient's current and documented medical condition. "Up-coding" and "DRG Creep" reflect the practice of using a billing or DRG code that provides a higher payment rate than the billing code that actually reflects the documented service furnished to the patient. Billing for non-physician outpatient services provided within 72 hours of a covered inpatient admission. Duplicate billing occurs with the submittal of more than one claim for the same service or the bill is submitted to more than one primary payer at the same time. Unbundling is the practice of submitting individual bills for tests or procedures that are required to be billed together, thus resulting in a higher payment than is otherwise appropriate. Routine waivers of co-insurance or deductibles not supported by evidence of financial hardship. Claiming reimbursement for unallowable or undocumented costs on a cost report. Requesting exceptions from or adjustments to payment limits that are not supported or justified. Failure to refund credit balances due Government payors. Billing for any Medicare or Medicaid covered services provided by an individual or entity who has been excluded from a federal health care program.
12 7. DISCIPLINARY PROCESS Every situation involving a Compliance issue will be reviewed thoroughly. Not all situations will be of a negligent or intentional nature. Those will result in correction of the problem, retraining of staff, and repayment as necessary. If a situation requires disciplinary action, it will be taken based on a number of factors. While we will endeavor to assure the consistent application of discipline for violation, each situation will be unique in its own right. Negligence and intention will normally involve the most severe actions where a situation of failure to train an employee may result in minimal action. In every compliance situation there is the potential for termination of employment based on our zero tolerance philosophy.
