Credentialing - New York Providers

New Policy Coming

There will be a new policy for new providers credentialing with Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York and providers who are recredentialing with Highmark BCBSWNY. The new policy effective date is August 1, 2022.

Read Chapter 3 of the Highmark Provider Manual on Provider Network Participation for complete policy details.

The links below outline the differences between the previous credentialing policy and the new policy that goes into effect on August 1, 2022.


Professional Providers

Providers who are currently credentialed with Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York will not need to recredential until you are normally due to recredential with us. You will need to continue doing this through the usual CAQH process. Once you have attested/updated your information in CAQH, there is nothing else you need to do.

You can always reference the Highmark Affiliation FAQs for more information.
