TAF’s Commitment to Compliance and Integrity
The Assistance Fund’s mission is to provide underinsured people living with life-threatening, chronic, and rare diseases access to critical treatment through financial assistance, education, and advocacy. TAF is committed to operating in full compliance with its Advisory Opinions, Integrity Agreement and other guidelines issued by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
To ensure its compliance with legal and regulatory requirements for patient assistance programs, TAF has developed and implemented the TAF Corporate Compliance Program as summarized in the TAF Compliance Plan and detailed in TAF Compliance Policies and Procedures. The TAF Compliance Plan provides guidance on how to resolve questions regarding legal and ethical issues. It also establishes a mechanism for raising compliance issues and reporting possible violations of law or ethical principles within TAF.
A confidential Compliance Hotline (Reportit) operated by an independent third party is available for employees and others to report fraud, waste, or abuse concerns/issues anonymously. If someone knows or suspects that a law, regulation, or organizational policy or procedure is not being followed, it should be reported. TAF has a non-retaliation policy regarding reporting of compliance issues or concerns reported in good faith. The TAF Compliance Office will review and address all reported issues.
TAF Confidential Compliance Hotline: 1-877-778-5463
(available 24 hours a day/7 days a week)
Retaliation against a person who in good faith seeks advice, raises a concern, reports misconduct or provides information in an investigation is strictly prohibited.
