To ensure we're providing our customers with the highest network quality, behavioral health care professionals must consistently meet established credentialing standards by being re-credentialed every three years. To ensure network quality, if recredentialing is not completed in a timely manner, the behavioral health care professional's contract may be terminated.
The best way to avoid contract termination and help minimize the effect of any unexpected issues with the recredentialing process is to complete the recredentialing application as early as possible.
However, if the recredentialing process is not completed in time, and the behavioral health care professional is terminated from participation in our network, they have the option to remain non-participating or to reapply to the network.
Reacceptance into our network
For health care professionals who choose to reapply to our network, it's important to note that network reacceptance is not guaranteed. Rather, their reacceptance is contingent on several factors, including the number of current participants, specialties included, geographical need, and compliance history with the recredentialing process.
