How to Become a DIDD Credentialed Provider

Provider Credentialing Application

Very important: The following must be completed prior to submission of the Provider Credentialing Application:

1. SERVICE/PROFESSION LICENSES a. PROFESSIONAL LICENSE(S)/CERTIFICATIONS: Applicable professional licenses pertain to services in the Clinical category. For example, when applying to provide Physical Therapy, the applicant must submit the therapist’s professional license. b. SERVICE LICENSE(S): Applicable service licenses pertain to residential, day, personal assistance, and other services. For example: in the Residential category, the applicant must submit the required residential license from DIDD’s licensure Division. c. PROFESSIONAL SERVICES SUPPORT LICENSE (PSSL): This is applicable to clinical services and is issued by the Tennessee Department of Health. *PLEASE NOTE: this license is not issued until after the completion of the credentialing process and therefore a copy is not required during credentialing. However, this must be obtained and uploaded before your contract may be executed.

2. FEDERAL TAX ID: This is issued by the Federal Government’s Internal Revenue Service. Please visit their website for instructions and questions.

3. REGISTRATION WITH THE TENNESSEE SECRETARY OF STATE: Please visit the Tennessee Secretary of State website to register your business. Status is required to remain “Active” while the business is open and conducting business.
