WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR JOINING?
Your completed application is submitted to our NCQA-certified Credentialing Department for processing. After reviewing it for complete information and validation, it is submitted to our Peer and Membership Committee for Peer Review by a variety of specialties. This process takes approximately 28 days.
TXCIN submits all approved members’ credentials to the health plans selected during the application process for participation in their contracts. Each plan acts independently and provides effective dates for physicians. Physicians are eligible to file claims on that health plan as soon as they receive an effective date. This process can take up to 120 days, depending on the plan.
