What if I already update my information with CAQH?

BetterDoctor is contracted by several health plans to clean and update their provider directories on a regular basis so they are as accurate as possible for patient searching for care. 

Many providers are familiar with CAQH's online updates and use them to update credentialing information with some health plans. Some plans also use CAQH to update provider directory information, but not all do. It's important to understand the difference between credentialing and provider directory information. Credentialing is intended for plans, while provider directory updates is intended for patients. 

The plans we work with do not use CAQH to update their provider directories so there is no overlapping work. In short, the information you submit to each organization goes to different plans and is used differently.
