Reminder: CAQH and Credentialing/Enrollment with BCBSNC
Release Date: July 20, 2012
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC), working with the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH), is committed to streamlining the administrative process for physicians and other health care providers. BCBSNC has been an active participant in CAQH's efforts to help eliminate the need for physicians and other health care providers to fill out and submit multiple credentialing/recredentialing applications.
As a reminder, health care providers opting to enroll in BCBSNC health plans must contact BCBSNC directly to initiate the credentialing process utilizing CAQH, as well as to obtain the necessary contracting paperwork. Completion of both processes, credentialing and contracting, is required by BCBSNC in order to be eligible for reimbursement when rendering services to our members.
