Credentialed Optum Providers - Join the Express Access Network

Clinicians displaying the Express Access Stopwatch icon enjoy more referrals

Join our Express Access Network and
Optum will direct more referrals your way.

If you are a currently credentialed provider with Optum, then you'll want to become part of the Express Access Network. It's designed to help you expand your practice and generate more revenue.

We do that by placing a stopwatch icon next to your name on our online provider directory, The stopwatch icon indicates to members and care advocates that you have contractually agreed to offer an appointment within 5 business days of request.

Reduced wait time is a huge motivator for members in need of services to come see you.

If you're ready to become part of this innovative solution for increased referrals, simply click on your state from the drop-down menu below. You will be linked to the Express Access Network contract addendum, which you can then complete, sign and submit for approval electronically. It couldn't be more convenient.
