Frequently asked questions

  1. Q: What happens after I successfully submit my contract request online?

    A: Humana contracting representatives will review your request and may contact you for additional or clarifying information. Once any needed information is received, a Humana representative will contact you to initiate a participation agreement. You’ll have an opportunity to review the agreement and be asked to sign it and return it to Humana. Credentialing may be required before an agreement becomes effective, and you may be asked for additional information to complete credentialing. Once credentialing is complete, you'll receive a copy of the contract. It will be signed by a Humana representative, and you will be advised of your effective date with Humana.
