Monida Healthcare Network Credentialing


Monida credentials our members according to standards established by the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA).  These standards include primary source verification of each applicant’s education, licensing, malpractice insurance coverage and board certification.  In addition, Monida has adopted rules through our Bylaws and Rules and Regulations addressing issues such as hospital privileges, use of locum tenens, medical malpractice claims, etc.  Every member must meet these criteria, except in a rare instance when the Board may grant an exception.

A large advantage for our members of being credentialed by Monida relates to participation in Monida’s payer contracts.  If you participate directly with a payer, each payer will require you to undergo credentialing and recredentialing.  When Monida negotiates payer contracts, we expect payers to delegate credentialing to Monida.  If you are credentialed with us, you are credentialed for all of our payers you have chosen to connect to, reducing significant burden on you and your staff keeping your paperwork up to date with multiple payers.

If you have any questions regarding Monida’s credentialing process or with your current credentialing status, please contact Staci Flynn (406) 829-2380.
