according to its primary source verification procedures, any
negligence by the statewide credentialing verification organization
in its collection and verification of such information may not be
imputed to a credentialing entity that receives such information
and, further, such credentialing entity is not liable for damages
arising from its reliance on such information in its credentialing
process unless the credentialing entity knew or should have known
such information was incorrect: Provided,
That a credentialing
entity is otherwise liable as provided by law for damages arising
from its credentialing decisions.

credentialing entity as defined in this article, to grant medical

requiring a credentialing entity to permit any practitioner to
provide patient care or as requiring a payor or network to
reimburse a practitioner for services.
