As an independent physician, today's changing healthcare environment can seem overwhelming. Genesis is a physician-owned and physician-run organization that provides tools and services to help our members succeed in the business of medicine. 

To join Genesis, you will need to complete a GPG Membership Application and have a current CAQH profile.

The following documents are required for all applications:

  • DEA Certificate

  • Certificate of Malpractice Insurance

  • Texas State Medical License

  • DPS Certificate

  • W-9 Form (must match with the IRS)

  • HCFA Form

  • Proof of admitting privileges from a hospital OR a letter of coverage if you do not have privileges yet

  • Participation agreement

  • Application fee


Your completed application is submitted to our NCQA-certified Credentialing Department for processing. After reviewing it for complete information and validation, we submit the Genesis candidate to our Peer and Membership Committee for Peer Review. The committee, comprised of doctors in a variety of specialties, review your application. This process takes approximately 28 days.

Genesis submits all approved members’ credentials to the health plans selected during the application process for participation in their contracts. Each plan acts independently and provides effective dates for physicians. Physicians are eligible to file claims on that health plan as soon as they receive an effective date. This process can take up to 120  days, depending on the plan.
