Mozzaz shall present a copy of any audit report to Subscriber and Subscriber shall have a reasonable opportunity to contest such report. Mozzaz will reimburse Subscriber on demand for any overpayments, and Subscriber may also deduct the amount thereof from any monies payable to Mozzaz under this Agreement or any other agreement between the Parties. Subscriber will reimburse Mozzaz on demand for any underpayments. All audits shall be at the sole expense of Mozzaz unless such audit reveals an underpayment of more than ten percent (10%), in which case, the costs of such audit shall be borne exclusively by the Subscriber. The terms and conditions specified in this Section 13.11 shall constitute Licensor’s only audit rights and accounting remedies.
Subscriber or its designee shall have the right, but not the obligation, to audit, inspect and copy, during regular business hours at Subscriber's cost, any books and records Mozzaz or its subcontractors maintain pursuant to this Agreement, exercisable upon ten (10) days' written notice to Mozzaz and/or subcontractor(s); provided that such inspection is not prohibited by applicable law.

Further, Mozzaz agrees to make all such books and records available to Subscriber’s auditors and agents, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Comptroller General, applicable State regulatory authority, or their designees to audit, evaluate and inspect in accordance with 42 C.F.R. §423.505 and applicable State law.

In case of error (e.g., more than 10% discrepancy in favor of Mozzaz) then Mozzaz shall be required to reimburse Subscriber for cost of audit.
11.12. Disputes. All disputes relating to the Agreement will initially be referred by either Party to the other Party to attempt to reach a resolution. If the Parties are unable to resolve the dispute within five (5) business day(s) (or any other agreed upon timeframe), the Parties will notify their respective senior management of the dispute. Senior management may, if both Parties agree, meet to resolve the dispute, but if they are unable to resolve the dispute then (regardless of whether a meeting occurs) within ten (10) business days of referral (or such other period as the Parties may agree), the Parties must submit the matter to mediation as per the terms of this Section.
If the Parties reach the mediation stage of dispute resolution, the matter will be heard by a single mediator chosen by the Parties. If the Parties cannot agree upon an acceptable mediator within ten (10) days of termination of the negotiations under Section 17.1, each Party will select one (1) mediator from a list of not less than five (5) mediators provided by the other Party. These two (2) mediators will select a third (3rd) mediator who will serve as the sole mediator. Subject to the availability of the mediator, the mediation will occur not more than thirty (30) days after the request for mediation. The mediation process will continue until the dispute (or any part thereof) is resolved or until such time as the mediator makes a finding that there is no possibility of resolution short of pursuing other available legal and equitable remedies consistent with the Agreement. The mediation will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, unless the mediator, on his/her own initiative, wishes to conduct any mediation proceeding by telephone, facsimile transmission or other means of communication. The cost of mediation, including the mediator's fees and expenses, will be shared equally by the Parties. Each Party will have the right to be represented by attorneys of their own choosing to advise them before and during the mediation process and their attorneys may review any settlement agreement, or other agreement, which the Parties have reached through mediation, prior to the execution of such agreement. The Parties agree that the mediator is acting in a neutral capacity and is not serving as an attorney, advocate, representative or fiduciary for either or both of them. Each Party will pay its own attorney's fees and costs. In connection with the mediation process, the mediator may meet in confidential "caucus" sessions separately with each Party. The mediator will be obligated to treat as confidential and refrain from disclosing to the other Party or its counsel any information conveyed to the mediator during the caucus sessions unless the Party conveying such information authorized the mediator to disclose it to the other Party.
