Frequently asked questions for medical providers

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. When all necessary information has been 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.

A: If your request was submitted within the past 90 days, please call Humana Provider Relations at 800-626-2741 (TTY: 711), Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Central time. If more than 90 days have passed since you submitted your request, please resubmit your request using our online application process, unless you are in a state where the online application process is not available.
