CAQH Directory Maintenance Toolkit

Dear Colleagues,

The National Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) has asked we distribute the CAQH (Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare) provider directory maintenance toolkit. Many of you have already been working with CAQH for credentialing. With health plans now required to regularly update their directories, CAQH is exploring opportunities to capture this information one-time for multiple health plans, thus reducing the burden on physician practices to supply the information. They are working within a small number of states, including Arizona. There is no cost to your practice for using this toolkit. You will find a Fact Sheet followed by the information for how to use the Toolkit in the PDF attachment. You’ll also find the contact information for CAQH for any questions.


The intent is to simplify the directory update process for physician practices.  AzMGMA will also be monitoring this process and would appreciate hearing from you about successes or concerns.


Best regards,


Michelin Abrahamsen

AzMGMA President
