  • Your Application Status

    Once you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email. Please save this email, as it will contain your Application ID.

    You can check your application status on the Provider Portal. You will need to enter your NPI and Application ID to view your status.

Get Credentialed

Complete your application with supporting documents.

Providers who wish to contract with CareSource must also be credentialed. Through credentialing, we check the qualifications and performance of physicians and other health care practitioners. Providers are recredentialed a minimum of every three years and are considered to be recredentialed unless otherwise notified.

  • Contracting and Recredentialing Process

    CareSource credentials providers using guidelines from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and as defined by West Virginia Code and the West Virginia Department of Insurance. Our Vice President/Senior Medical Director is responsible for the credentialing and recredentialing program.

    West Virginia Department of Insurance and CareSource require that you submit your National Provider Identifier (NPI) number to CareSource along with the completed West Virginia uniform credentialing and recredentialing form or the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH) application.

    At CareSource, we work with our healthcare providers to ensure the highest quality of care for our members, and we are committed to making it easy for you and your staff to do business with us. This module of the Provider Education Series shares CareSource’s philosophy, product offerings, and process for becoming a new CareSource Health Partner.

    CareSource is committed to a seamless and expedient credentialing and re-credentialing process. Watch this video to learn about credentialing requirements and best practices for submitting the required documentation to CareSource.
