Health care providers obtain their CAQH Provider ID directly from CAQH by going to https://proview.caqh.org/pr (link opens in new window) and completing a registration form. Once the form is submitted, the health care provider will receive an email from CAQH with a CAQH Provider ID. Then, he/she will be able to log into CAQH ProView and create a user name and password, which are used to complete the online application.
The process incorporates the Standard Application Data Set and also, where appropriate, accounts for additional credentialing information required by states with specific application mandates. Before the completed application is available to a participating organization or health plan, the health care provider must authorize release of the data. Each organization that has included the health care provider on its roster will appear on the authorization screen for the health care provider to review and authorize.
The applications are stored in an online database and are always available to the health care provider to update, review or print.
Once a health care provider completes the process, automatic reminders are sent each quarter to prompt a review and update of the information.
After you receive your CAQH ID, visit our contracting Web page to begin a contract application.
