Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long does the credentialing process typically take?

A: Credentialing typically takes between 60-90 days from the time a provider roster is received to the time a provider is reviewed at Credentialing Committee. Ensuring a provider’s CAQH profile is updated, that Bright is authorized to access a CAQH profile, and that roster data is submitted accurately will all help reduce processing time.


Q: A provider is no longer with our group or his/her information has changed. Can Bright HealthCare update the provider within its system?

A: The easiest way to have changes (of any kind) to your provider roster reflected is to re-submit your roster with the relevant changes inputted. For Terms, please ensure you include a “Term Date” in the respective field.


Q: How do I receive an update on provider loading and/or credentialing status?
