Notifying Priority Health

Priority Health requires written notice, 90 days in advance, if you are:

  • Terminating a Priority Health participation agreement
  • Retiring and/or closing your practice

Failure to give us 90 days' notice may result in claims denials or reassignment of members.

Requirements for terminating your contract

  • Notify us in writing using the Provider information form
  • The provider or the office manager must sign the notice
  • The notice must give the reason for termination (ie, retiring, moving out of state)
  • If you are a primary care physician, provide in writing the arrangement for transfer of members

Send us a copy of the letter you sent your patients and include:

  • Information on where you would like your members transferred, if applicable
  • A copy of the Provider information form you sent us, notifying us you were terminating your contract

Notify your patients

You must notify members in writing at least 30 days in advance that you are leaving the Priority Health network.
