The Medical Billing Compliance Office is responsible for the oversight, development, implementation and ongoing maintenance of the medical billing compliance program.

A variety of laws, regulations and guidelines govern medical billing compliance and governmental offices that interpret and enforce them. These include the False Claims Act and the Medicare statues and regulations. Relevant University policy is published in the Medical Billing Compliance Manual.
