Provider Verification Process
The doctor and hospital information found on this online Find a Doctor search tool is submitted to Sharp Health Plan by the doctor, the doctors medical group or the hospital. Sharp Health Plan (or the delegated medical group) reviews the credentials of all contracted doctors to ensure they meet specific criteria for acceptance as a Plan Provider. Sharp Health Plan works with a credential verification organization that is accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) to verify the accuracy of the information submitted by the doctors. Final credentialing status is approved by Sharp Health Plans Peer Review Committee under the guidance of the Chief Medical Officer and the Board of Directors. Doctors are required to maintain compliance with all standards as a condition for continued participation.
Our Find a Doctor search tool is updated daily with any changes received on the doctor or hospital information.
