Our offices will be closed Thursday, November 22, and Friday, November 23, in observance of Thanksgiving.
All MedCost providers must follow an approval process for recredentialing every three years to remain in the network. The MedCost credentialing program has been accredited by URAC since 2000, assuring clients and members of our compliance with federal and state credentialing standards.
To eliminate the need for practitioners to submit multiple credentialing applications, MedCost participates in the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH). Their Universal Provider Datasource® (UPD) enables a practitioner to submit a single standard application that is designed to meet the needs of all organizations involved in the (re)credentialing process. In an effort to make the process more uniform and to ease your administrative burden, CAQH will help with the collection of your credentialing information.
If you are not registered with CAQH, please register and add MedCost as one of the health plans authorized to access your information. Once you receive notification from CAQH that your application is complete, supply MedCost with your CAQH ID.
If you require a paper copy please contact the CAQH Help Desk at 888-599-1771 and request a CAQH application be sent by mail. A fax number for completed applications is provided on the application.
