How to Make a Report
Each of us has an obligation to report any known or suspected violation or activity that you know or suspect violates any law, regulation, or contractual obligation. Examples include but are not limited to: federal and state criminal codes, state insurance regulations, health and safety regulations, contractual obligations, and policies and procedures such as the processing of claims.
If you know of or suspect a violation of these business ethics guidelines, or any activity that may otherwise be improper, by any employee, leader, officer, Board member, agent, contractor, or vendor, you are expected, as a condition of your employment, and required to take action to report.
Wellmark will not tolerate retaliation against anyone who makes a good faith report of an alleged violation of the law, our Code of Conduct or our policies or who cooperates in an investigation. Reporting “in good faith” means you had reason to believe a violation of the Code of Conduct existed and are sincere in your attempt to provide honest and accurate information, even if the investigation determines there was no violation.
The Compliance office take claims of retaliation seriously; they will be investigated and if substantiated, retaliators will be disciplined up to and including termination. If you believe you have been retaliated against, or witness retaliation, contact the Compliance Office.
