Group Contract Requirement
ProviDRs Care now requires all practitioners, including current participating practitioners, to contract as a group to be credentialed or re-credentialed with the network. Previously, participating practitioners had the option to contract as a group or by each practitioner. This change streamlines the contracting and credentialing process reducing the administrative burden for participating provider groups.
If you are uncertain you are contracted at the group level or are a new provider group that would like to participate in ProviDRs Care Network, please complete the Group Declaration of Agreement (DOA) and attach the required W-9 using the link below.
