On July 15, 2023, BCBSMT implemented a provisional credentialing process for professional providers which allowed for provisional network participation while a provider was waiting to become fully credentialed. Provisionally credentialed providers will be able to participate in all contracted networks excluding TriWest and will receive a welcome letter stating as much. Once a provider is fully credentialled, they will also be added to the TriWest network (if a TriWest contract is in place) and receive another letter confirming this addition.

This change does not require any action on the part of the provisionally credentialled provider.
