Requesting Client has contracted with ProviderTrust, Inc for its VendorProof© service.
VendorProof is an online service that assists ProviderTrust’s clients in meeting several State and Federally mandated vendor compliance requirements. VendorProof collects directly from the vendor necessary data, including business information and a short risk survey to help our clients gather, store and monitor certain vendor information.
VendorProof.com/vendor is the portal for you, the Vendor, to enter such required data. Such data will be verified by ProviderTrust, Inc., and the information you enter will be used to monitor federal and state OIG exclusions and debarments on a monthly basis. Any ownership information will be verified using public records. You may also be required, depending on client request, to certify compliance with certain client requirements and/or to upload documentation to evidence such compliance. This will be the portal for you to update any such information as it may change over the course of your contractual relationship with Requesting Client.
All healthcare providers (e.g. hospitals, hospice care centers, physicians, etc…) such as Requesting Client are required by law to perform oversight of their vendors. You are considered a vendor under the Department of Health and Human Services (“DHHS”), and the Office of Inspector General (“OIG’). A vendor is defined as “providers, suppliers, manufacturers, and any other individual or entity, including a drug plan sponsor or managed care entity, regardless of the service the vendor provides (e.g. cleaning service, vehicle maintenance, decorating service, any healthcare service, etc…), that directly or indirectly furnishes, arranges or pays for items or services.”
The services provided by ProviderTrust are not a duplication nor replacement of the services you currently utilize for on-site vendor representative credentialing, e.g., background checks; annual TB screening; annual Flu vaccinations; HIPAA training certifications; representative visitation and access privileges; and representative ID badging requirements.
Participating in VendorProof is not optional.
VendorProof Marketplace is an optional and opted-in program. It is the Vendor’s responsibility to keep its description current. VendorProof will display a Vendor in the Marketplace after such Vendor has opted in to be listed on the Marketplace and after VendorProof has verified that the company is not excluded, that the owners listed by Vendor are not excluded.
Neither VendorProof nor ProviderTrust is representing, has a pecuniary interest in, nor warrants or guarantees the services described by Vendor in the VendorProof Marketplace; however, VendorProof does warrant that such Vendor and/or it’s disclosed owners are not excluded from participating in federally reimbursed healthcare programs.
