Credentialing process changes beginning in September
Beginning in September 2023, Quartz implemented a change to our credentialing process. We are excited to now partner with andros*. The shift to andros* will include a heightened use of the CAQH (Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare, Inc.) credentialing application.
The CAQH identification number will be critical for the Quartz credentialing process moving forward. Quartz has already begun requesting the CAQH identification number on some of our forms, like the Practitioner Notification Form. Having this information will create a seamless process as Quartz credentials practitioners in the future.
Action may be required
If a practitioner already has a CAQH profile, that’s great! Please confirm the profile status by logging into the CAQH portal. However, if a practitioner doesn’t already have a CAQH profile, we ask that they create one at CAQH.
Adding a new practitioner? We require a CAQH practitioner profile before notifying Quartz of the new practitioner. Once a CAQH practitioner profile is complete, notify Quartz via the Practitioner Notification Form.
Already credentialed with Quartz? We ask that the practitioner create a profile with CAQH if they don’t already have one. Please let us know the CAQH identification number using the Practitioner Notification Form. Enter your CAQH identification number in the “Change Request” field of the “Are you updating a practitioner?” section.
Practitioners with updated CAQH applications can be credentialed within one week. If the required documentation is incomplete or missing at the time of credentialing, the application process and credentialing approval time can be delayed.
