The Alliance credentialing process verifies training, experience, licensure and competence of an individual to determine if they are qualified to render acceptable quality of care to Alliance members.
The credentialing process occurs after contract completion and provider registration. While providers and practitioners are active as of the later of their contract effective or start date, WPS and other plans may not consider them in-network until credentialing has been completed and approved.
The Alliance partners with other organizations to assist in carrying out the credentialing process. Credentialing application materials are sent to participating providers for completion as applicable.
