Provider Credentialing Information and Rights

Date: 05/20/24

Superior HealthPlan's Credentialing Department utilizes a comprehensive process to evaluate and select providers who will serve our members. Each provider must meet minimum qualifications established by Superior and outlined by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), State licensing agencies and the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI).

During the credentialing and re-credentialing process, Superior will obtain information from various sources to evaluate applications. Providers/practitioners have the right to review any primary source information that Superior collects during this process such as the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB), licensing boards and board certification. However, this does not include the release of references, recommendations or other information that is peer-review protected.

Once a credentialing application is submitted, Superior’s Credentialing Department may contact the provider/practitioner (or designated contact who completed the application) by phone, email and/or by mail to inform them of any information obtained from an outside primary source that varies from the information provided by the practitioner. A response from the practitioner will be requested at this time. The provider/practitioner has the right to correct any erroneous information submitted by another party if the information is:

  • Used in the credentialing/recredentialing process incorrectly.
  • Gathered as part of the primary source verification process and differs from what they submitted on an application.
