Overview

Auditing and Monitoring of Systems and a Method of Anonymous Reporting

Care Value, Inc. maintains auditing and monitoring of its systems to detect violations of the law and to evaluate the effectiveness of the compliance program. These types of reviews permit the Corporate Compliance Department to evaluate compliance with regulations, policies and procedures. Through these reviews, we are continuously assessing the effectiveness of the compliance program and finding ways to improve it. Employees are expected to assist in responding to routine internal and external audits as well as compliance office investigations.
