What is the process to join the CBH Provider Network?

CBH and DBHIDS utilize procurements in the form of Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and Requests for Qualifications (RFQs) to acquire new services or add providers to the CBH Provider Network. Requests for relocation of existing services may be submitted in writing to the DBHIDS Executive Leadership for consideration outside of the competitive bidding process. CBH’s Network Development Department is the single point of contact on activities related to resource development and support. Visit the CBH Contracting Opportunities page to view CBH’s RFPs and RFQs.

How do I learn of new opportunities within the network?

The primary method of notice for CBH-related procurements is the CBH Contracting Opportunities page. Such opportunities are also sent out via the CBH News Blast, an email newsletter. Anyone seeking regular CBH updates should sign up for the CBH News Blast.

What does the CBH initial credentialing process entail?

All new providers/programs to the CBH network must complete the initial credentialing process. Upon completion of contract negotiations, providers/programs receive an initial credentialing visit by the Network Development Department. The initial credentialing visit may include: a review of staff files, facility tour, review of written policies and procedures, and review of clinical records. Additionally, various business documents must be submitted for review. A comprehensive list of these documents can be found in the CBH Provider Manual.
