Coronavirus (COVID-19) Credentialing Exceptions

Virginia Premier is closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state of Virginia as well as in the nation as a whole. Based on our latest assessments, we will be implementing credentialing exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

For your information, we are listing below some of the exceptions being made at this time:

  • Organizations do not need to credential practitioners who are not part of their network or practice and are providing care to members/patients as part of a federal, state or local government emergency response team, or who are part of the organization’s emergency response efforts.
  • We are extending the grace period two months to allow 16 months in total for annual requirements such as delegation oversight.
  • The practitioner and provider recredentialing cycle is being extended two months, for a total of 38 months.
  • Provisional credentialing status is extended from 60 days to 180 days.
  • All practitioners not already credentialed with the plan must have a full, unrestricted, active license in the state in which they reside. Retired practitioners as well as graduate residents must also have an unrestricted license in the state in which they reside.
