Credentialing is the systematic process of collecting and verifying relevant education, training, licensure, professional references, background, and certifications to provide patient care before a provider is allowed to see patients. This process is intended to ensure that our members receive their care from providers who are appropriately trained, licensed, and meet quality standards. WellHealth Community Medical Associates uses a process called primary source verification to validate required credentialing information including, education, training, licensure, DEA registration, work history, hospital affiliations, and insurance coverage. This process, among others, is verified by contacting the organization that originally issued the credential to the provider.

WellHealth Community Medical Associates is an Accountable Care Provider Network established to service commercially insured carriers and self-funded groups. WellHealth Community Medical Associates contracts with multiple payors across the state of Nevada.
Because healthcare is about providing excellent care and seeing your patients’ health and wellbeing improve and flourish. Our goal is to change the way healthcare is experienced.
In essence, we want to shape the way the healthcare model of tomorrow looks and functions. Our Network is comprised of the best providers in Nevada, and we pride ourselves on the quality of care they provide.

Credentialing and network contracting are two separate processes. If credentialing is required a Nevada Standard Credentialing Application (for Arizona please click here) and a W-9 must be completed. E-mail the completed forms to WH_Credentialing@hcpnv.com or fax them to 702-358-0362. The credentialing process must be successfully completed before a contract is executed.
No, WellHealth Community Medical Associates will use the same credentialing application for all Payor Groups added to the contract.
Once the information is received, WellHealth Community Medical Associates will evaluate your credentials as described above. When the credentialing process is completed, you will be notified in writing with your credentialing effective date and contracted date so your organization will know when they can begin to see patients.
Overall, the credentialing standards are established by WellHealth Community Medical Associates' Credentialing Committee. Additional standards are set by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
There are no appeal rights. The contracting committee has the right to add physicians/groups to the Network based on the needs of the Payor groups we partner with.
All credentialed providers are re-credentialed at least every three years.
The foundation of WellHealth Community Medical Associates is the ability to ensure WellHealth patients are receiving the best care possible, resulting in better outcomes and ultimately lower health care costs.
WellHealth strongly supports the use of evidence-based medicine, accountable care measures and quality tracking programs.
The WellHealth Quality Assurance Board is composed of medical professionals across all specialties. Each board is comprised of a Medical Director and five to eight peers in the same specialty. By creating a peer-to-peer assurance board, it allows for patient care to be put back in the hands of the providers.
Clinical outcome data is regularly reviewed by our Chief Medical Officer along with each of the WellHealth Quality Assurance Board members to ensure our providers are adhering to the highest standards of quality care. WellHealth providers are differentiated in the community and with insurers as high quality, accountable physicians.
