 1. Initial Credentialing Information Packet

Included in this packet:

  • Initial Application Cover Letter
  • Credentialing Checklist
    The Credentialing Application Checklist is a valuable tool to assist in completing the credentialing application and to ensure you are submitting a complete application. Incomplete applications are returned to the practitioner or clinic and creates a substantial delay in the practitioner’s credentialing process.
  • Criminal Background Study Disclosure and Authorization Form
    Minnesota state law requires all health care practitioners complete a Criminal Background Study prior to participating in patient care activities. This form will authorize the Fairview System Credentialing Office to electronically submit a background study request to the Minnesota Department of Human Services. Our office cannot complete the credentialing verification process until the Criminal Background Study form is submitted and a response is received.
  • Fairview Authorization and Release
    Fairview has its own Authorization and Release form that must be completed in place of the Authorization and Release form included in the MN Uniform Credentialing Application. As part of its service to practitioners, Fairview System Credentialing Office provides delegated credentialing services to health plans and provider networks. When you apply to a Fairview entity, you accept certain conditions regarding immunities and authorizations to obtain or release information, including the release of information to these health plans and provider networks.
