Let us join you

Simple. Straightforward. Stress-free. Let us help you navigate joining the Aetna® network, so you know exactly what to expect every step of the way. 

Here’s how it works


Here’s how it works

First, you can request participation in the Aetna network online. Next, we’ll evaluate the current need to service our membership in your area. If we don't intend to pursue a contract, you’ll be notified by letter or email. If we do intend to pursue a contract, a local network manager will reach out to you to begin the contracting process.


After contracting, we'll get your credentialing application from the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH)* to begin the credentialing process. When you complete credentialing, your contract will be finalized and you'll receive welcome materials to get up and running. Ready to get started? Choose a link below.


*We use ProviderSourceTM for credentialing practitioners in Washington State. Just designate Aetna as an authorized health plan to access this information on your application.

(For the workers' compensation network in Texas, just call 1-800-937-6824.)
