As part of our Compliance & Ethics program, UnitedHealth Group has adopted an enterprisewide Code of Conduct detailing the organization’s commitment to acting with integrity.
For Medicaid programs, the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 requires established written policies and procedures to support fraud, waste and abuse (FWA) prevention efforts for employees and subcontractors, including requiring delegates to distribute to their employees either the delegate’s code of conduct or the UnitedHealth Group Code of Conduct.
The Code of Conduct can be shared with the delegated entity as a resource detailing key compliance policies and procedures.
Standards of Conduct must be distributed within 90 days of hire and annually thereafter. Delegates must retain proof of distribution for each employee. (See Document Retention)
