Step 1 - Applying
Fill out and submit your online application. Upon submission, you’ll receive an email from our Provider Engagement team to confirm receipt of your application. You will also be prompted to create a username and password for your new Provider Portal account. We will use this space to communicate with you about the status of your application and stay in contact once you have joined the network.
During our review of your application and any supplemental documentation, we may reach out to you if we have any questions regarding the information provided.
Step 2 - Credentialing
Once your application passes the initial phase, you’ll receive an email notifying you that your application has advanced to our Credentialing Team. You can also check your Provider Portal at any time to view its current status. During this stage, we’ll review your CAQH application, malpractice insurance, and other information. If we have any questions, a Credentialing Coordinator will contact you.
Step 3 - Contracting
If our Credentialing Committee approves your application, you’ll receive an email from Adobe Sign with a contract for you to review and sign electronically.
After you’ve signed and submitted your contract, you’ll receive another email from Adobe Sign with a countersigned contract for your records. This document will contain your effective start date within the Lucet network.
Step 4 - Completion
Welcome to the Lucet provider network! You’ll be sent a welcome letter via email, and if you have any questions, we invite you to contact your Provider Engagement representative.
