Office Based Professional Providers – Credentialing

December 16, 2020

BCBSTX requires physicians and other professional providers to use the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare's (CAQH®*) ProView for initial credentialing and recredentialing. CAQH ProView, a free online service, allows physicians and other professional providers to fill out one application to meet the credentialing data needs of multiple organizations. The CAQH ProView database online credentialing application process supports our administrative simplification and paper reduction efforts. This solution also supports quality initiatives and helps to ensure the accuracy and integrity of our provider database.
