As a reminder, it is important to keep your information up to date in the CAQH ProView system in order for the provider credentialing process to run smoothly and efficiently.
If you are attempting to complete an application for credentialing with Harvard Pilgrim, keep in mind that until you have attested in CAQH ProView, your information is not current and the status of your application is incomplete. Once you have attested to your information and your application is marked with a status of “Initial App Complete” or “Reattested,” HealthCare Administrative Solutions’ (HCAS’) credentialing vendor, Aperture Credentialing, LLC, can begin the process of primary source verification.
Best Practices guide and other resources
The HCAS Recommended Credentialing Best Practices guide provides guidance on how to enter or re-enter information in the CAQH ProView system; how to correct errors commonly made when submitting a credentialing application; and how to use the self-registration functionality that allows providers to create a CAQH account and establish a user ID number.
The guide is intended to assist the provider community by highlighting the most common elements that require outreach to the provider during the credentialing process, as well as outlining several best practices to assist providers in completing their credentialing applications.
In addition to the new guide, the Credentialing Resources page on the HCAS website is an excellent source of information about provider credentialing and recredentialing.
