  4. Our Department does not accept gratuities, kickbacks, gifts, beyond those permitted by the law or through adequate institutional channels.
  5. We do not participate in self-referral.
  6. Activities such as unbundling, up-coding or submitting false claims are illegal and therefore not permitted.
  7. We adhere to Antitrust Laws.
  8. We maintain constant vigilance for updates in local, state and federal regulations affecting our practice.
  9. We remain attentive of any abuse or transgressions of the laws and regulations dictating our practice.
