Dear Dental Provider,

Recently, some of you may have received a letter from Aperture, our credentialing verification partner, requesting that you update your CAQH application for re-credentialing with Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI). If you received this letter and have not yet responded, please disregard it as it contained incorrect information regarding CAQH. At this time, BCBSRI does not require our participating dental providers to use CAQH for credentialing. A corrected version of the letter will be sent in the next few days. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

If you received the letter mentioned above and responded to Aperture by completing your CAQH application and adding BCBSRI to your roster, then you do not need to do anything further at this time.

Again, please accept our apologies.


Mary Bennett
