USC is committed to the highest standards of ethics and integrity in all aspects of health care delivery. Our compliance program has been developed to ensure that guidelines issued by payers (Medicare, Medi-Cal, etc.) delineating requirements for billing in an academic medical center are an integral part of the business practice of all faculty, staff, employees and billing agents.
It is within this framework of integrity and ethical behavior that our compliance program reiterates and clarifies the policies concerning billing for the provision of professional patient care services.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the healthcare compliance mission, its values and its commitment to making the right choices.
