(Network) Which credentialing applications does HNFS accept? Am I required to use CAQH?
Network providers must ensure a credentialing application is completed, current and accessible by HNFS. HNFS uses CAQH® for its provider network application and credentialing process in all states except Minnesota and Washington. (These states have special circumstances and the credentialing process can be completed with another entity.)
For all other TRICARE West Region states: Submit/update credentialing applications with CAQH.
- All providers must verify their CAQH profile allows for global access or specifies that HNFS can access their CAQH record.
- For CAQH access issues, contact the CAQH Help Desk at 1-888-599-1771.
