BlueCross BlueShield of Michigan Credentialing Services
To become a new provider in our network, you must first fill out an enrollment form. The submitted data is then checked for accuracy. Depending on the type of provider, we may need your license, education, insurance, and other credentials. The verification process is known as credentialing.
Our online provider enrollment is split into two categories: hospitals and facilities and physicians and practitioners. Here’s an overview of each section’s certification.
For Medical doctors
The Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare®, or CAQH, collects and coordinates the information needed for credentialing. You must create a profile on CAQH ProView in addition to completing our enrollment form. We won’t be able to conclude credentialing without it.
• After submitting your membership form, you must complete your CAQH ProView application within 14 calendar days.
• Have you created a CAQH ProView profile yet? Make sure your attestation is up to date. You must complete the attestation process within 14 calendar days of submitting your registration form to us.
• New graduates can submit an enrollment form to us up to 60 days before the completion of training.
• If you are relocating from out of state, please submit your registration form to us 30 days before to your start date.
What is the purpose of Credentialing?
To verify the competency and conduct of healthcare workers servicing clients in our network, credentials are evaluated in compliance with our policy requirements. We accredit qualified health care practitioners with whom the company intends to form contracts and advertise to its members.
