How To Apply

Medical Network

When you use CAQH ProView®, you eliminate the need to complete multiple, lengthy paper forms and reduce administrative burden. To start the credentialing process, you must register with CAQH. For more information about applying for CAQH, see the ‘CAQH Proview Help’ section and review their FAQs.

Once you are registered with CAQH and have your CAQH Identification number, complete the CareFirst CAQH Questionnaire to attest your profile and upload all the required documentation.

Important Note: Be sure to save your CAQH Proview authorization settings to reflect the desired organization access. If you choose to review each payor’s request individually, please first contact CareFirst directly at 410-872-3500 or at our toll-free number, 877-269-9593, to be added to the CAQH roster before beginning the CareFirst CAQH questionnaire.

For more information about how to use CAQH ProView, please view the CAQH Provider Quick Reference Guide.

Attention Virginia Based Athletic Trainers: If you are interested in joining our network, please complete the Credentialing Application form to initiate the credentialing process. Once completed, please mail the application to PO Box 14763, Lexington, KY 40512 or fax to 410-872-4107. Athletic Trainers should not utilize CAQH ProView. Keep in mind only Athletic Trainers affiliated with a participating group in Virginia are eligible to apply.

What's Next

Once you are registered with CAQH ProView, please continue to review and make regular updates any time your provider information changes (or at least once each quarter). You will be sent a reminder from CAQH to review, update and attest your data.

Important Note: If you are a practice administrator and need to make changes to the practice’s information such as Tax ID number or payee address, complete and submit the Change in Group Practice Information form.

Important Note: CareFirst’s self-service tool is not integrated with CAQH ProView. All providers must attest their directory information in CAQH ProView and with CareFirst directly. For more information on CareFirst’s self-service tool, review the Update Your Practice Info page.
