How do I add a provider to my network practice?
To add a provider to your network practice who has been credentialed by Health Net Federal Services, LLC (HNFS) within the last three years, update your demographics using the network provider directory. Network providers must be re-credentialed by HNFS every three years.
To add a provider to your network practice who has not been credentialed by HNFS, he or she must send in a Provider Information Form to ensure he or she gets credentialed by HNFS. The provider must have all information current with the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH®), as well. Provider groups with 20 or more individual providers can complete the TRICARE Provider Group Roster rather than a PIF for each provider.
Note: It can take HNFS 60 to 90 days to credential your new provider based upon the accuracy of the information provided.
