These days, healthcare providers–from physicians, to chiropractors, to acupuncturists–are, in droves, running to become credentialed with insurance companies. And for good reason! Not being able to accept insurance means that up to 90% of their potential patient (or client) base will politely decline to use their services, and instead opt to be treated by the provider just down the street (or sometimes in the same office building!) who does accept their insurance.
For DME companies, that’s Durable Medical Equipment Companies, the story is the same. Except in the case of DME companies, if they’re not credentialed with insurance companies, a large percentage of potential patients might not even know that they exist!
Our credentialing team can help!
Working with insurance companies, to get credentialed, can be difficult–but with Credentialing.com, the process becomes much easier. When a DME company signs up to have our team complete their credentialing, we contact relevant insurance providers, submit applicable information on the DME company (including any applications, that can be 30-90 pages long) to the insurance companies, and then begin an interaction and application process with each insurance company–that can take between 90-120 days to complete on average (3-4 months). All the while, every interaction–every phone call, email, letter, application, form, fax, and every other bit of correspondence between our team and the insurance companies, is recorded and organized in an online account that YOU (the DME company) can access anytime. You are able to see how often we follow up on your application, and the progress we’re making with every insurance company, anytime and in real time!
We’re sure that you have questions. Call us at 1-855-664-5154, and one of our credentialing support specialists will be available to learn more about your DME company’s needs, and help you to develop a plan for getting your company credentialed with insurance companies.
BTW, here is a video we created on the credentialing process. To be fair, it’s primarily focused on credentialing at the healthcare provider level (not the DME company level) but I’m posting it because a lot of the information will likely still apply. After watching the video, call with you specific questions! We’ll be available to help.
