How do I get credentialed with HealthPartners?
When a practitioner type that HealthPartners credentials joins a HealthPartners contracted clinic, the practitioner or clinic must complete a credentialing application.
HealthPartners uses the ApplySmartTM system, which is now owned by Aperture Credentialing. All MN-based medical clinics are required to use ApplySmartTM for submission of initial credentialing applications.
Practitioners or clinics can register for an account and use this web-based credentialing application for submission of the credentialing application to HealthPartners. Join Now at http://Mncred.org.
If you or your clinic has an ApplySmartTM account, log into ApplySmartTM to submit your credentialing application to HealthPartners.
Clinics in other states may use ApplySmartTM or continue to submit paper applications by fax or email. Medical and behavioral health practitioners or clinics complete the Minnesota Uniform Credentialing Application and fax at to 952-853-8702 or send by secure email to Credentialing@HealthPartners.com.
How long does the credentialing process take?
The process can vary depending on completeness of the application, whether additional information needs to be obtained from the practitioner, and whether the practitioner meets all HealthPartners credentialing criteria. It is recommended that an application be submitted at least 90 days prior to employment date.
Practitioners will receive written notification once their application has been approved. Practitioners or clinics may also contact the HealthPartners Credentialing Service Bureau at 952-883-5755 to check the status of an application.
