What is HealthPartners process to become an in-network provider?
Contracting is a separate and distinct process from practitioner credentialing and enrollment. Both are required to participate in our network.
- Contracting is the formal process of obtaining a provider network agreement.
- Practitioner credentialing and enrollment is the formal process for ensuring network practitioners are qualified to treat our members.

What are your provider credentialing and enrollment requirements?
