This is a question we hear every day (if not several times a day) at Thriveworks about insurance panels. The answer can get complicated, as the rules change by insurance company, and by state. However, in most instances, healthcare providers who are fully licensed (not intern-level or intermediate-level license) can get credentialed with most insurance panels… but there are some exceptions! UBH and United Healthcare like their providers to be practicing for a minimum 2 years post licensure, and Value Options requires 3 year of post-license practice. On a positive note, in most states Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, Humana, and many others have no post-licensure waiting period. In the video below, Dr. Anthony Centore and Whitney Bade talk about the issue.
