Upon receipt of a completed application, the application is reviewed and if the applicant has met the credentialing requirements PDF file a contract will be sent. The credentialing process may take up to four weeks.

Delegated Credentialing

PEHP may delegate credentialing activities to contracted provider groups that include at least three providers. The group must agree to follow PEHP credentialing requirements.


PEHP requires that all providers falling within the scope of the PEHP program complete the recredentialing process at least once every three years. A verification form will be sent to the provider.
