Welcome to the UnityPoint Health Credentials Verification Office (CVO) web page.

The credentialing team at the CVO is responsible for processing providers' initial and recredentialing applications and updating provider demographics in the credentialing database.

The CVO shares information with the Physician Hospital Organization (PHO)/Medimore, Inc. to assist with payer enrollment and network management, and to the medical staff offices (MSOs) to assist with privileging providers for UnityPoint Health facilities.

Our goal is to supply provider-centric credentials verification that is electronic, secure and efficient.

HOW TO REQUEST/SUBMIT A NEW APPLICATION (TIP SHEET)

The UnityPoint Health CVO electronic application can be accessed through our new Provider Portal. Request an application through our ServiceNow ticketing system.

In your request, you may include the email address of a delegate person. This delegate may complete the demographic, malpractice, licensure, schooling, and other informational portions of an initial application or recredentialing application. Delegates may NOT complete disclosure questions or the delineation of privileges form (if applicable), nor sign and submit an application on a provider's behalf. Providers are required to sign into the Provider Portal to review all information, complete the disclosure questions and the delineation of privileges forms (if applicable), sign, and submit the application.

Once the application request is processed (in approximately 5-7 days), a welcome email will be sent to the provider and the delegate with a link to our online portal application. If you have any difficulties accessing the portal, please refer to our FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT APPLICATION COMPLETION.

Credentialing Application Tracker 2.0

The Credentialing Application Tracker (CAT) for initial applications and recredentialing applications is on the CVO's ServiceNow home page. Simply enter a provider's NPI for a high-level view of where they are in the credentialing, privileging, and payer enrollment process. NOTE: The CAT provides dates and the percent of task complete. The latest CAT 2.0 tool provides more information regarding the status of your references, hospital information and other aspects of the process.
