Medicaid Compliance Hotline
RTS is committed to compliance with ALL NYS and Federal Rules & Regulations, including Medicaid, and has strict policies and procedures in place to ensure adherence to both State and Federal rules and regulations. In the RTS’ continuing efforts to provide open access to our employees, we offer a confidential hotline for use in reporting any questions or concerns about any procedure that is currently being followed. Should an employee have a related question or concern, please feel free to call the Medicaid Compliance Hotline at 585-482-4368. This line is not connected to RTS’ recorded telephone system; it does not have caller ID and will only record the information you provide, therefore, you may remain anonymous if you choose. All concerns voiced on this hotline will be investigated. However, if a caller choses to remain anonymous, he or she will not receive any follow up communication as to the outcome of any warranted investigation.
