Re-attesting CAQH is an important part of Insurance Credentialing.
Once a CAQH account is created, the provider needs to re-attest CAQH to make sure their information is accurate and up-to-date every 120 days (3 times a year).
This concept often scares providers, who worry they will forget about it or get buried in far too much paperwork. Both concerns are quite understandable, but re-attesting one’s CAQH is often just a few mouse clicks from completion. This is because CAQH does a great job of letting you know, via email, when it’s time for you to login and re-attest.
I just re-attested my CAQH account today. Here’s the confirmation email:
Thank you for participating in the CAQH Universal Provider Datasource! We are pleased to confirm that the reattestation for your application data was successful. Any changes made to your application data in the CAQH Data Repository have been provided to your authorized Plans in order to update their provider files.
We would like to remind you that complete provider files require a new attestation every 120 days even when no changes to your file are necessary. For your convenience, we will begin sending you e-mail or fax reminders 2 weeks prior to your reattest anniversary date, encouraging you to review and reattest to the accuracy of the information in your file.
We hope this helps!
