Behavioral health provider participation

If your practice/organization would like to be considered for participation in the Priority Health Behavioral Health Provider Network, please complete the following steps:

Send an email to PH-BHPN@priorityhealth.com.

Subject line of email: "[Your practice/organization name] Participation Request"

Information to include: Whatever you would like us to consider when reviewing your request, such as:

  • Areas of specialty
  • Certifications
  • Special circumstances
  • Accreditation, e.g., The Joint Commission, CARF or COA.

We also need:

  • CAQH Credentialing Supplemental Form if your practice is not accredited (see below)
  • The names and NPIs of any providers in your practice who are already credentialed by Priority Health

Our response:

We will send you an immediate response to your email that confirms that we received your request.

We prioritize requests based on our provider needs and other criteria, and will contact you if we are able to offer a participation agreement to your practice. We are not able to provide any estimate of whether, or when, we may contact you, or reply to emails or phone calls requesting additional information or regarding updates on requests for participation.

If your practice is not accredited

If your practice is not accredited, complete the CAQH Credentialing Supplemental Form for each provider in your practice who would like to participate with us, unless they are already credentialed, and attach to your participation request email. (Note: Do not send to the email address or fax number on the form).  Credentialing Supplemental Forms are not required for accredited practices/organizations.

Providers eligible for credentialing:

  • Licensed MD/DO Psychiatrists/Addictionologists
  • Licensed Psychologists
  • Limited Licensed Psychologists

Psychiatric Advanced Practice Providers (CNS, NP, PA) are not separately credentialed, but may provide office-based evaluation and management services to Priority Health members if working in a practice participating with Priority Health and billed under the supervising/collaborating psychiatrist who is credentialed by Priority Health.

If you have previously submitted a request to PH-BHPN@priorityhealth.com for an exception to the closed behavioral health network or for future participation, please do not re-submit.  Your previous request will be included in our review.

Thanks for your interest in joining our network.
