physician enrollment - what are the documents required?

Physicians and Ancillary Professional Providers

Based on the type of services performed by the provider, the appropriate documentation will need to be provided before the Agreement may become effective. While the specific information required is subject to the discretion of BCBSF and may vary depending upon provider type, the following is a list of the type of information that may be required:

The CAQH record is a major advancement in the credentialing process. Most major insurance companies require it as part of their procedures. Filling it out for the first time can be quite daunting however and requires a good deal of record collecting in advance. the record list you've supplied is an excellent one. It saves a great deal of time and limits the frustration.
