A Third Party is an individual or a group that you authorize for the purpose of acting on your behalf. Authorization allows for release of your information to the Third Party. MMSEAS does not handle any of the medical information for credentialing.
When asked on CG-719KE Page 5 Section VII b. and c. "Consent for CG to Release to 3rd Party" and "Consent For Third Party to Act", it is not necessary to enter 3rd party information. Only enter this information if you want somebody else to have access to your information and be able to act on your behalf.
This is the same option for CG-719K Page 10 Section XI b. and c.
We hope this made your life a little easier and if you have other questions the MM-SEAS team is always here to help!
