Participating Organization FAQs
How often are providers required to re-attest?
Every 120 days, unless they practice in Illinois in which case they must attest every 180 days.
Why doesn’t my provider have to upload a new AAR (Attestation, Authorization, and Release) every 120/180 days?
NCQA has approved CAQH ProView’s electronic attestation method, which extends the original wet signature and places a provider’s electronic attestation date at the top of the AAR document.
How often does CAQH outreach to providers reminding them to attest?:
Re-attestation reminder emails are sent on the following schedule:
- 15 days prior to expiration
- 10 days prior to expiration
- 5 days prior to expiration
If no re-attestation has occurred, a provider status will be updated to “Expired” on the day after the re-attestation was due. Providers in expired status will receive the following notices:
- Day after provider is placed in expired status
- 14 days after expired
- 28 days after expired
- 42 days after expired – final notice.
How often am I billed for services?
CAQH looks at a number of factors when billing for providers. To be billed for a particular provider, ALL of the following must be met::
- Provider is Active on your Roster.
- Provider is in Re-attestation or Initial Profile Complete status at the time of their Anniversary Date.
- Provider has authorized your plan to view their credentialing application.
Once all criteria is confirmed, CAQH bills once a year for each provider on your roster in the month of the provider's anniversary date (AD).
Your organization may also pay an annual fee of $3,000 that is billed once a year around the time your agreement was initiated with CAQH ProView.
Where can I locate my invoices?
If you are a CAQH ProView Plan Administrator, Back-up Plan Administrator or Billing Administrator, you can securely access billing information directly through CAQH ProView. Simply log in and go to the Files and Reports tab. Then click on Billing Reports to easily retrieve your Invoices.
In addition, you will find Application Reports listing the providers that are billable on each invoice you receive. If you would like to see your account balance, AR aging, credits available, or a list of open invoices, just view your Statement of Accounts Report.
Provider and Practice Manager FAQs
How often do I need to attest to my CAQH ProView information?
Every 120 days, unless you practice in Illinois in which case you must attest every 180 days.

How long will it take my documents to get approved?
Documents uploaded via the CAQH ProView Provider Portal will be approved within three business days.
Why did my document fail?
Documents usually fail if they are not the correct file type, if they are not signed or are illegible. Documents may also fail if information on your account does not match the information on the document being submitted. For more specific information about document failure, please contact the Provider Support Center. You may speak with a representative via Chat through the CAQH ProView system or you may call 1-888-599-1771.
Why do I have to update my data again, even though I just attested?
CAQH ProView routinely makes system updates to maintain the most current and consistent provider data for uses including credentialing and provider directories. Based on these updates, the system may ask you to enter or update additional information in order to reattest. However, once you have attested, your information will remain updated in CAQH ProView until the time a reattestation is requested.
Why did my information not save when I updated it?
There are red ‘Save’ and ‘Save and Continue’ buttons at the bottom of every page of your application in CAQH ProView. Use these buttons as you are working through your application and every time you make any changes to your data in order to save your updated information. Once you have made all of your updates and are ready to reattest, please then follow the CAQH ProView attestation steps.
