    How to avoid delays

    The top reasons for incomplete applications include the following:

    • Incomplete address, suite number, or phone number
    • Missing SS-4 (EIN) on new contracts
    • Expired malpractice insurance
    • Missing work history or education information
    • Hospital privileges, if applicable
  • Existing credentialed providers

  • Provider update - Email this form to Premera with new information or changes to your current practice or payment structure. The federal No Surprises Act requires health plans to verify all provider directory data every 90 days. It also requires all providers and facilities to submit this information to in-network plans. Unverified providers may be removed from our directory.

    To request a new contract, please email us the following information. Note that you must reside in Washington state to be credentialed with Premera.

    • Copy of the SS-4 or 147c letter from the IRS
    • DBA name
    • TIN
    • Address (location, remit/mail)
    • Phone number
    • Fax number
    • Email (for sending your contract through DocuSign)
    • Practitioner name(s) and NPI(s)
    • Name of the business owner(s)
    • Effective date

    Note: You must reside in the state of Washington to be credentialed with Premera.

    You will receive an email from our contracting department in the next 45 to 60 business days to review, sign, and return all documents through DocuSign. If we do not receive the signed documents within 30 days from the date the contract is emailed to you, we will close your request.

    The contract will not be effective until countersigned by Premera. You will receive a countersigned copy that includes your contract effective date for your records.

    Request a copy of your contract

    If you need a copy of your contract, send us an email request that includes your contract name (full legal name as reported to the IRS), tax identification number (TIN), and your relationship to the provider. Once received, we’ll send your contract as an email attachment. Please note this email is only for requesting contract copies.
