Healthcare providers who participate in Midlands Choice gain access to a network membership base of nearly 300,000 people covered by healthcare plans throughout Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.
All healthcare professionals must successfully complete our credentialing process to be accepted as Midlands Choice network providers. Credentialing, a process which ensures that providers meet a set of membership standards, can take from several weeks to a few months, depending on the complexity of the information provided. We highly recommend reading through this entire section, including the Credentialing FAQs before beginning the process and the Application Checklist before submitting your request for network participation.
Participation in Midlands Choice shall not be denied on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin or disability unrelated to the capability to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the provider's profession or the provider agreement.
Information collected during credentialing is considered confidential and is not discussed with anyone inside or outside Midlands Choice except when required in the normal course of business or as required by law. Proceedings of the Credentialing Committee are also confidential.
