For healthcare providers in practice today—from nurses, to chiropractors, to physicians—the process of becoming credentialed with insurance providers (that is, the process of getting on insurance panels, and being able to accept 3rd party payments from new and potential patients) is one of the most important things that one can do to ensure the health and growth of their healthcare company.
The challenge is that the provider credentialing process is an arduous one, and can take 90-120 days of filling out paperwork, following up with insurance companies by telephone (playing phone tag), and responding to ongoing requests from insurance companies for “clarification” and for more information.
In fact, it is easy to spend well over 10 hours work trying to become credentialed with just one insurance company!
Lastly, many healthcare providers find–that with their busy schedules–something has fallen through the cracks (they haven’t follow up enough, they missed an important phone call from and insurance company and then couldn’t get a hold of the person again, their application had some minor flaw, their application was lost by the insurance company, etc.) and that even after months of processing, they have nothing to show for it–except perhaps a rejection notice.
There is a better way!
Credentialing teams and services are designed to help healthcare professionals of all types to become credentialed as quickly as possible, with no hassles, so that they can focus on their passion–helping clients and patients.
