Life Solutions South is committed to fostering an organizational environment of compliance and to make all good faith efforts with adherence to all applicable laws, rules, regulations, policies and procedures. A compliance program and procedures are established to support adherence to this policy.

The Compliance Program has been developed to assist all Life Solutions South employees, Board Members, Students and contract providers in complying with organization’s Code of Ethics and Policies and Procedures, False Claims Act, Anti-kickback Statute, confidentiality laws, and other applicable statutes and regulations. Its primary purpose is to prevent and detect violations, provide a system for reporting compliance concerns, develop corrective actions, ensure that all employees receive appropriate training and continually monitor compliance.

Because laws and regulations are constantly changing and sometimes are complex, the implementation of a compliance program cannot guarantee that all compliance issues will be fully addressed. Life Solutions South relies on each individual’s integrity and requires each employee to report information concerning possible misconduct. Reports made by employees are confidential and no adverse action will be taken against the employee due to good faith reporting.

 

OUR COMPLIANCE PROGRAM HAS SEVEN COMPONENTS:

  • Implementing compliance and practice standards through the development of Policies and Procedures.
  • Designating a compliance manager to oversee compliance activities.
  • Developing and implementing appropriate training and education.
  • Conducting internal monitoring and auditing to assess compliance.
  • Supporting and encouraging open lines of communication.
  • Responding appropriately to potential violations and developing corrective actions.
  • Enforcing disciplinary standards through well-publicized guidelines.
