Submit Credentialing Only Through OHP

  • February 1, 2018

    Beginning June 1, 2018, practitioner credentialing applications can only be submitted through OneHealthPort (OHP)'s ProviderSource tool. This is because of a change in Washington state law (Washington House Bill 2335). Premera currently uses the ProviderSource tool, so this won’t be a change for most providers.

    What's changed?

    Previously, providers could submit credentialing applications through OHP ProviderSource or directly to Premera.

    Also beginning June 1, the law requires Premera to approve or deny a complete credentialing application no later than 90 days after receipt. This requirement changes to 60 days on June 1, 2020. A complete application is one that is not missing any information.
