Welcome to L&I

To bill for services, all providers must apply for an L&I provider account number through ProviderOne.  All healthcare providers must have a National Provider Identifier (NPI) to apply.  If you need to obtain an NPI, see the "NPI requirement" tab below.

For the following provider types use the "Exempt Provider Application" tab below:

  • Interpreters
  • Independent medical examiners
  • On the job training (OJT)
  • Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities
  • Third party pharmacies
  • Clearinghouses
  • Health Service Coordinators
  • Out of country providers, apply here

Action Required

L&I needs all Groups to ensure their servicing providers are added/associated with their ProviderOne Group domain. Failure to take action may impact payment of services. To learn more, visit the "ProviderOne Action Required" tab below.​

Due to system issues, it may take up to four months for L&I’s provider credentialing team to process new provider applications and changes to existing accounts. We’re working on fixing this issue and we appreciate your patience.
