Our nation’s healthcare system is being tested like never before. In the fight against COVID 19, healthcare workers are putting their lives on the line around the clock. Health plans are doing everything possible to expand access, remove barriers and support those delivering care.
At CAQH, we want to say thank you to all of those who are working so hard and sacrificing so much.
At CAQH, we continuously search for new ways to streamline administrative processes for providers, health plans and other participating organizations. To simplify how providers complete their initial profile, the CAQH ProView application will no longer require the Attestation Authorization and Releases (AARs) to be hand signed. Beginning immediately, we will also accept computer-generated signatures.
Please note, this change does not apply in the following thirteen states which continue to require wet signatures: CO, GA, IL, MA, MN, MS, NV, NC, OK, OR, TX, WA and WV
The following CAQH ProView® releases will be effective April 20, 2020:
License Upload Requirements Follow Relaxed FSMB Rules
In response to COVID-19, the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) relaxed rules regarding physician licensure during the State of Emergency, extending physician renewal dates as much as 90 days after the end of the emergency, varying by state.
X12 and CAQH CORE will host the Introduction to the 278 Transaction, Standard and Operating Rules webinar on April 30 at 2:00 pm ET. During this session, experts from both organizations will provide insights into how to utilize this transaction to electronically submit prior authorization and referral requests. They will also discuss how CAQH CORE Operating Rules for Prior Authorizations can further standardize components of this process across healthcare.
