Frequently Asked Questions
I completed the online application to join the Peoples Heath provider network but haven’t received a response. What should I do?
You should have received a response within 30 days of submitting your application. If your application was submitted more than 30 days ago and you have not been contacted by phone or letter, please email us at email@example.com. Please include the contact name and provider type on the application.
I want to submit an application to join the network, but I don’t have my Medicare number/PTAN yet. Can I submit the application in the meantime?
Since we are not able to process your application without a Medicare number/PTAN, you must wait until you are assigned a Medicare number/PTAN before you submit an application. Our online provider application requires that you include this information.
Do I need to submit documentation when completing the online provider application?
Yes, you will need to submit a curriculum vitae for each provider at your practice or facility who is interested in contracting with Peoples Health. In addition, you will need to have several pieces of information handy to complete the form, including your Medicare/PTAN and TIN numbers, as well as your Medicaid and CAQH numbers if applicable. Please review the instructions under the provider application link for all the information you will need.
I received a letter stating that my application was accepted. What happens now?
A Peoples Health contracting specialist will contact you in the near future to deliver a contract for your review.
- If you accept the terms, you must sign the contract and return it to Peoples Health.
