What happens after a fraud tip is received?
After a tip is received, it is screened by us for a possible investigation. If an investigation is performed and fraud, waste, or abuse is found, management will be informed and will take corrective action. We will also issue an audit report with recommendations to strengthen control weaknesses that allowed the incident to occur.
