Is the practitioner application right for you?

The online practitioner application is for individual practitioners who are not currently in the CDPHP network, but who wish to become participating providers.

To contract with CDPHP as a facility or ancillary provider, including laboratory services, durable medical equipment (DME), home health care, home infusion, transportation, imaging, dialysis, hospice, and skilled nursing, please contact Healthcare Network Strategy at (518) 641-4290.

Individual practitioners who are already credentialed with CDPHP® and are requesting an address/tax ID change or other demographic update should complete the Practitioner Information Change Request Form.


It’s simple to apply to the CDPHP provider network online:

Step 1: Review these important documents – Practitioner Statement of Rights, Practitioner Qualifications, and Access and Availability Standards.
