Completing the process
When you return your Group Participation Agreement, please also include the required credentialing documents. Both sets of documents will be forwarded to a Credentialing Specialist on the Credentialing and Data Management Team, who will establish your record in our system.
Once the Credentialing Specialist receives the completed application, the credentialing process can take up to 90 days. Applications must have all requested information, so it is very important that you respond timely to requests for clarification from the Credentialing Specialist.
After the application has been processed and completed, you will receive an approval notification letter via mail from BCBSND. Please do not submit any claims until you have received this notification. Our system will deny your claims until that notification has been shared.
