We are pleased that we have continually maintained a culture of compliance and diligently stressed adherence within our organization.  We welcome the opportunity for our industry practices to be put under the microscope.  Our experience needs to serve as a catalyst for all of our industry to ensure all practices are beyond reproach.  All of our industry organizations owe this to the countless patients, their physicians and their health plans that benefit from our respective products and services.”
