Insurance Panels are going to be opening up their panels in 2014 because there are going to be a lot of new patients for these companies. Insurance companies have to make sure that they have enough providers to handle all of the new patients. Many of your big name companies will be opening up in order to help all of the new patients that they have.
This was the most common question we received from counselors interested in getting on insurance panels (credentialing) this past year. In response, Dr. Anthony Centore, CEO and Founder of Thriveworks, sat down with Hannah Ray, Head of Credentialing, to answer this question.
Anthony: Hannah, are insurance panels – I know that some of them for some providers have been difficult to get on, and they’ve been closed or limited – are they going to be opening up in 2014?
Hannah: Yes. They are going to be opening up in 2014 because of the fact that there going to be a lot of new patients for these insurance companies. They have to make sure they have enough providers to handle of the patients that are coming on since everyone is required to have insurance now. So a lot of your big name companies will be opening back up in order to help all of the new patients that they have.
