Thank you for your interest in joining iCare's Provider Network!

Independent Care Health Plan welcomes a variety of providers to join our Provider Network to assure the broadest choice of quality providers for iCare Members. Providers may request to join iCare's Provider Network by submitting the appropriate application as indicated in the instructions below.

Application Instructions:
ALL providers are required to complete an application to be considered for participation in iCare's Provider Network. Please review the options below and complete the appropriate application based on your provider type.

*Do not complete any of the above applications if you are already contracted with iCare and trying to provide updated demographic or affiliation information. Please complete either our Demographic Change Form or our Affiliation Change Form and email to or fax to (414) 272-5618, ATTN: Network Development.

Completed applications (and applicable attachments) may be emailed to or faxed to (414) 272-5618, ATTN: Network Development.

*If you are a provider seeking certification for a 1-2 bed Adult Family Home (AFH) please complete the AFH Certification application.

What to Expect

After the complete application has been submitted, notification will be sent by e-mail indicating that the application has been received. Incomplete applications will be returned without further review. The Network Development Team will then review the application against iCare's current Provider Network. If iCare is in need of the services being offered, the applicant will be contacted by a Network Development Contract Specialist. If iCare is not expanding the Provider Network for the submitted service area and/or category indicated on the application, a letter will be sent informing the applicant of the decision. An application denial does not restrict a provider from applying again in the future.

*Please note that submission of any Provider Application does not confirm your network participation status with iCare. Participation in the iCare Provider Network requires completion of credentialing and execution of a Service Agreement. Providers will be notified in writing after the contract is fully executed.


Independent Care Health Plan only credentials provider organizations and their affiliated practitioners, after the Network Development Team has reviewed the Provider Application and decided to move forward with the contracting process. iCare's Credentialing Department will review your application and may also contact you with additional information requests or questions.

If your organization has practitioners that require credentialing or if you are an individual solo-practice, an application and return envelope will be mailed to you from Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative, iCare's contracted credentials verification organization.
