CAQH is Live!  

CAQH is now fully functional and early feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. 

PREFERRED is committed to streamlining the administrative workload of our member clinics so you can spend more time with patients and less time with paperwork.  

Introducing CAQH-based credentialing and recredentialing delivers on that promise and we look forward to working with members during the transition and beyond.  

The most frequently asked questions we have received can be found below or contact our Credentialing Team with questions at  

What is CAQH? 

CAQH ProView® is a trusted source and the industry standard for self-reported provider data, used by more than 1.6 million health care providers nationwide. CAQH ProView® continues to be the premier credentialing tool. 

What is the cost for providers to use CAQH ProView®?

There is no charge to the provider for enrolling and/or updating their information in CAQH ProView®. 

Will the initial credentialing fee still apply once CAQH ProView® becomes live?

Yes.  The initial credentialing fee will remain in effect. PREFERRED is required, by the health plans/payors, to verify an individual provider’s reported credentials and qualifications.  During primary source verification PREFERRED confirms that an individual possesses a valid license, certification, medical school diplomas; education, work history, specialty training; continuous monitoring of any disciplinary action or sanctions; medical malpractice payments and any other credential as required by law, regulation or health plan policy. 

Why did PREFERRED choose to work with CAQH ProView®?

CAQH is a proven solution for simplifying administrative burdens providers experience during credentialing and recredentialing. The easy-to-use online data collection and application process means less paperwork. Plus, it uses built-in auditing tools to help increase efficiency and maintain data security and integrity for our valued providers. This saves you time and precious work-hours. 

Will PREFERRED require providers to use CAQH ProView®?

Yes.  All providers credentialing or re-credentialing should use this method once the system goes live .  The primary goal of utilizing CAQH is to simplify the administrative process with a robust and streamlined data system.  However, if there are reasons your provider/office cannot utilize CAQH ProView®, you should discuss with one of our Credentialing Associates.
