  • Notice: Effective April 21, 2021, all boroughs in Alaska are closed to accepting new providers for durable medical equipment (DME) and freestanding laboratory. We review this semi-annually and will update this page with changes.

    • Send your completed application with copies of the following documents:
      • Current DEA certificate or coverage plan for the state in which you're practicing

    What happens next

    The credentialing process typically takes 60-90 days.

    Acceptance is based on your application information and network requirements. If your submitted application is accepted.

    • New provider joining our network: You'll receive a contract to review and sign through DocuSign. Once you return your signed contract, you'll receive a counter-signed contract through DocuSign with your participation effective date.
    • New provider joining an existing contracted group/clinic: You’ll receive a letter with your credentialed date, and you’ll be added under the group/clinic’s location(s) as a credentialed provider.

    For all Premera plans, you can't see members until you're officially credentialed under contract. Also, your malpractice insurance must not expire before credentialing is complete.
