Join as Provider

 

The Process

The process of becoming a provider in our network has a few steps to ensure that our network maintains its high quality of service.

Step 1

The New Member Questionaire must be filled out. If applying as a solo practice, please fill out the Solo Practice New Member Questionnaire. If applying as a medical group, please fill out the Medical Group New Member Questionnaire. The questionnaire must then be sent back to Podiatry Plan.

Step 2

After having received the questionnaire, we will create a record in our system and send back the Provider Portal user information.

Step 3

After having received the portal information, the applicant will need to log in and create a secure password. The application form in the portal must be submitted with the required documents within 10 business days of receipt of the portal user information.

Step 4

Once submitted, the application will be Peer Reviewed by a panel (usually the first Tuesday of every month). If approved, the applicant becomes a part of the network and will receive a contract to sign.
