16.12. Corporate Compliance. Licensee has in place a Code of Excellence (“Code”), the goal of which is to ensure that all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations are followed and all government and non-government payer requirements are satisfied.  The Code includes a commitment to uphold a high standard of ethical and legal business practices and to prevent misconduct.  Through the implementation of this Agreement, each party acknowledges the commitment to legal and payer contract compliance and agrees to conduct all transactions which occur pursuant to this Agreement in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and all government and non-government payer requirements.  Any material violations of applicable law or payer requirements will be considered a breach of this Agreement. In addition, pursuant to the federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, Licensee is required to provide contractors with information about the federal and state laws regarding false claims, Medicare Parts C and D compliance, penalties and whistleblower rights and protections under such laws. Licensee has also implemented a policy to detect, address and prevent issues of fraud, waste and abuse. This policy, the Code, and information regarding the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Medicare Learning Network (“MLN”) or other applicable payer requirements shall be accessed by Licensor on Licensee’s online supplier portal at http://www.spectrumhealth.org/for-suppliers, or Licensee will provide a hard copy or additional access to such materials upon written request from Licensor.  It is Licensee’s expectation that Licensor will educate all Licensor employees and contractors who work on matters related to this Agreement on such policy, the Code, and all applicable payer requirements (including, but not limited to, MLN training if required as described in the supplier portal) within ninety (90) days of the effective date of this Agreement and annually thereafter. By signing this Agreement, Licensor represents and warrants that neither it nor any of its employees or contractors directly involved in the provision of Services are, or have been, excluded from participation in any federally and/or state funded health care programs, including but not limited to Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE. Licensor agrees to promptly notify Licensee of any proposed or actual exclusion, of it or any of its employees or contractors directly involved in the provision of Services, from any federally and/or state funded health care program.  Licensee is an equal employment opportunity employer and is a federal contractor.  Consequently, the parties agree that, to the extent applicable, they will comply with Executive Order 11246, the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 and Section 503 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and also agree that these laws are incorporated herein by this reference.  41 CFR 60-300.5(a) and 60-741.5(a) prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals on the basis of protected veteran status or disability, and require affirmative action by covered prime contractors and subcontractors to employ and advance in employment qualified protected veterans and individuals with disabilities.  Licensor also agrees to comply with the provisions of Executive Order 13496 (29 CFR Part 471, Appendix A to Subpart A), relating to the notice of employee rights under federal labor laws.

 

16.14  Subcontractors.  Licensor shall not engage any subcontractor to perform any services for Licensee without the prior written consent of Licensee.  If Licensee approves a subcontractor, Licensor shall obtain and maintain in effect a written agreement with the subcontractor, which agreement shall contain sufficient terms for Licensor to fully comply with all provisions of this Agreement and to support all grants and assignments of rights and ownership hereunder; however, nothing contained in any such agreement shall create, nor represent to create, a contractual relationship between Licensee and any subcontractor.  Such agreement shall also impose an obligation of confidentiality (consistent with Section 8 (Confidentiality)) on the subcontractor with respect to Licensee’s Confidential Information. Licensor shall be fully responsible for the acts of all subcontractors to the same extent it is responsible for the acts of its own employees.

 

16.15  Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including the Electronic Order Form and any Exhibits attached hereto, constitute the entire integrated agreement between Licensor and Licensee with respect to the Hosted Products and related services.  No statement, representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of any kind, including without limitation, any terms included in or located on a purchase order, invoice, or website, accessed through a URL, provided as an end user license agreement, or provided in a click-wrap, shrink-wrap or other similar format, not expressly set forth in this Agreement shall affect, or be used to interpret, change or restrict, the express terms and provisions of this Agreement.

 

16.13  No third-party beneficiaries. All terms and conditions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their successors and authorized assigns. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended or shall be construed to create any rights in, or confer any benefits upon, any person or entity other than the Parties to this Agreement.

 

16.14  Online Terms. This agreement is subject to our Privacy Policy stated on Licensor’s official website where the terms and conditions are subject to change as industry standards.

 

16.15  Material Changes. Each Party must immediately notify the other Party in writing of any change in their business operations, financial condition, licenses or regulatory approvals if the change is likely to have a material adverse effect on such Party’s ability to perform its obligations under this Agreement.

 

16.16  Addendum. No amendment to this Agreement will be effective unless in writing signed by a duly authorized representative of each party. Any provisions of purchase orders, invoices, or similar documents submitted by Licensee to Licensor, which are in addition to and/or inconsistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall be unenforceable and deemed stricken from any such document. Capitalized terms not defined in the Licensor’s Standard Terms & Conditions shall have the meaning set forth in the Electronic Order Form or, if applicable, the Exhibits attached hereto. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
