Create a CAQH profile

If you are a licensed or certified provider, we require you to have a valid Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH) provider profile as part of the credentialing process.

Tips and checklists

Here are some pointers and resources for the CAQH application process.

  • We must verify the attestation date on the CAQH report (page 1). 
  • We cannot accept a CAQH attestation that is more than 120 days from the date of our review. 
  • Ensure that your CAQH is always up to date. CAQH will send you reminders. 
  • CAQH information and attestations that are out-of-date and incomplete can significantly delay the credentialing and provider load process.
  • Consult this guide on CAQH application steps.
