How to Apply

Join the network in three easy steps

1. Request participation. 

Request participation in the Aetna network by applying using the links below. We’ll review your eligibility to join our network by evaluating your request for participation against the current need to service our membership in your geographic area.

2. Complete the credentialing process. 

Already registered with Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare's ProView® (CAQH's)?

If you’re eligible for participation and you have already registered with CAQH, we’ll obtain your information from CAQH for our credentialing process*. Please log on to the online application system to ensure you have authorized Aetna access to your credentialing data.

Not registered with CAQH?

If you’re eligible for participation and you have not previously registered with CAQH, you’ll receive a registration kit from CAQH in the mail. Upon receipt, please follow the directions included to complete the online CAQH application using the CAQH website. Once you’ve completed your CAQH application and have authorized Aetna access, we’ll retrieve your credentialing application from CAQH for our credentialing process*.

3. Get Notified.

We’ll review your information and notify you when the credentialing process is complete. Keep in mind that Credentialing and Contracting are separate processes, and both must be complete before you can join our network. You’re considered out of network until both the contracting and credentialing processes are finalized and your network representative notifies you of your participation effective date.
