HNS Policy 

Each of us must comply with all federal and state laws and regulations.  Our first and most fundamental obligation is to obey both the letter and the spirit of the law.


Each of us is expected to act with the highest degree of integrity and professionalism.  All contracted health care professionals shall at all times conduct business with fairness, honesty, integrity, professionalism, and consistent with HNS Compliance Policies, and with respect for the laws applicable to the health care industry.  Even in cases where interpretation of the HNS Policies, laws or this Standard could be ambiguous, permissive, or lenient, HNS expects its contracted health care professionals to always do the right thing, in the right way, and to choose the course of honesty and integrity.
