In accordance with NC Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Health Benefits contract amendment #31 regarding credentialing of provider, Partners now accepts the provider enrollment information inside NCTracks for the purpose of enrolling and contracting with providers. Partners no longer requires initial credentialing or re-credentialing applications from providers including agencies, LIP’s and associated clinicians effective May 16, 2022.
In addition, Partners no longer requires clinicians to complete applications through CAQH effective with this change. Partners will verify clinician information inside of NCTracks in order to associate those clinicians with your contract based on the information submitted to us using the Provider Change Form.
In order to make changes to your existing contract with Partners (i.e., adding sites, services and clinicians or removing sites, services or clinicians), please continue to submit the Provider Change Form in order to request the change.
If you would like to join Partners network, please submit the Request for Consideration Form.
Please note that your enrollment with NCTracks is required. The agency, NPI, taxonomy, sites and clinicians must be enrolled in NCTracks in order to continue to contract with Partners and in order to make changes to your contract with Partners.
Please contact us at CredentialingTeam@PartnersBHM.org or by phone at 704-842-6483 if you have questions about the status of your enrollment and contract with us.
Notice to Clinicians/Practitioners Who Bill Services:
The approval of credentials is only one requirement for network membership. A credentialed clinician/practitioner must have an executed independent contract OR be employed by a Network Provider to be a member of Partners Provider Network AND be eligible to bill for services.
