How long does it take to get a Wisconsin or Michigan license and how do I obtain one?

Wisconsin: Please visit Wisconsin’s Department of Regulation and Licensing Web site. You are able to download and monitor the application status online. The entire licensing process can take 6-12 weeks, so we encourage all providers to apply as soon as they feel they may be practicing in Wisconsin.

Michigan: Please visit . Keep in mind you will need to apply for a pharmacy license also as the state of Michigan requires a separate license in order to prescribe narcotics. The state of Michigan also requires that you obtain a fingerprint that must be submitted with your application. Designated sites are listed on the state’s Web site. The licensing process can take an average of 8 weeks to obtain.

What is the process of receiving privileges at Aspirus Wausau Hospital?

Once you have signed a contract you will receive a pre-application. If it is determined that you are qualified to receive an application based on the answers from the pre-application, you will receive an application from Northcentral Credentialing Services. It is important that the application be returned fully completed as to not delay your approval. Providers will not be allowed to begin employment until they are fully credentialed. The length of this process varies, but can take up to 90 days.

For Aspirus Ironwood, a credentialing packet from the UPHP (Upper Peninsula Health Plan) will be mailed to you directly. The average length of the credentialing process will take 60 days.

What do I need for references?

Please supply us with three (3) clinical reference names and contact information. These must be previous or current partners or other providers that had a close working relationship. We also request two (2) names and contact information for administrative references.

These must be a previous or current office manager, administrator, residency coordinator or current/previous Medical Assistant or Registered Nurse that had a close working relationship. We do require provider-to-provider references completed prior to employment. In addition, we require a signed authorization form allowing us to check your references, past employers, and the National Practitioner Data Bank.
