Peer Support Credentialing Process for Organizations: FYI
• Once potential organizations who employ Peer Support Specialists are identified, the
Network Manager distributes the applicable application and supporting materials to the
agency.
• The organization completes the application and supporting materials and submits them
back to the Network Manager.
• Once the Network Manager receives the application and materials from the organization
they submit a request to have a program audit conducted.
• All Peer Support organizations will need to pass a program audit prior to being
credentialed.
• Once the audit of the organization has been completed, the Network Manager confirms
the agency passed the audit and forwards the agency application and contract materials
to the credentialing team for review and approval by the Credentialing Committee.
• The Credentialing Team Confirms all the Peer Support Specialists of the organization
meet the certification, training, and credentialing criteria/requirements applicable to the
state requirements, agency licensure type, accreditation, liability insurance, and is in
good standing with applicable state and federal agencies
• Credentialing Committee for review and approval

Contracting and Credentialing for Peer Supports
• Training programs not on the approved list can be submitted for review but
must be approved by Optum prior to credentialing or contracting the
organization for peer support services
• If required by state regulation, peer support staff are supervised by an
independently licensed mental health professional
• To provide peer support services, new providers must participate in a group
contract; providers with existing contracts would require an addendum
• Rates for peer support services will be determined by the state and in
accordance with your provider agreement
