AmeriHealth VIP Care has entered into an agreement with the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH) to offer our providers the Universal Provider Datasource that simplifies and streamlines the data collection process for credentialing and re-credentialing.
Through CAQH, you provide credentialing information to a single repository, via a secure Internet site, to fulfill the credentialing requirements of all health plans that participate with CAQH. AmeriHealth VIP Care's goal is to have our all of providers enrolled with CAQH.
