Priority Health vendor/supplier information

We value our vendors/suppliers as partners

Thank you for your interest in doing business with Priority Health. Our organizational mission is to improve health, inspire hope and save lives. We strive to achieve this mission through our values of compassion, collaboration, curiosity and courage. These values are outlined in our standards of conduct, the Code of Excellence.

As an affiliate of Spectrum Health, we place the utmost importance on the observance of the principles of our Code of Excellence and expect all with whom we do business to conduct themselves accordingly. Spectrum health is committed to compliance with all laws or regulations relating to all health care programs, including but not limited to the state and federal False Claims Acts, fraud and abuse laws, the Stark regulations, or any other laws pertaining to the organization. 

Compliance program

Priority Health vendors, suppliers and business partners are required to take and adhere to the requirements of two different types of compliance training:

  • General compliance training
  • Fraud, waste and abuse training

Training program materials are available below to complete this requirement.

We recognize that some vendors/suppliers have already made an investment in general compliance and fraud, waste and abuse training for their teams that meet regulatory requirements, and these will be considered sufficient. However, those individuals who have physical access or access to our network will be required to take Priority Health general compliance training, fraud, waste and abuse training, and HIPAA Privacy & Security training, which is deployed annually on an individual basis. Other training may be required, depending on the individual’s role.

Download and review the Medicare Parts C & D General Compliance training and then go to Medicare Parts C & D Fraud, Waste and Abuse training.
