Questions, Instructions and Information
The universal credentialing (and recredentialing) application, created and maintained by the ACPCI, is meant to be a convenience to providers in Oregon, eliminating the need to complete multiple unique applications for each health plan, hospital, insurer, etc. However, credentialing is not currently governed by the state.
The state cannot give legal advice or give direction about how to answer any questions on the applications. Please use your best professional judgment, contact the health related organization responsible for credentialing or seek legal counsel, as appropriate.
