Practitioner Credentialing

Practitioners must complete the practitioner contract application and approval process prior to credentialing with University of Utah Health Plans. Once credentialed, providers may begin to see members.

Initial credentialing and subsequent re-credentialing every three (3) years is required for all physicians and other types of health care professionals practicing under their own license as permitted by state law with whom members schedule appointments. The credentialing program follows the standards set forth by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and uses CAQH exclusively for the credentialing application.

University of Utah Health Plans requires that Advanced Practice Professionals (APP), including PAs, complete credentialing.
