The medical credentialing process is a difficult process, but there are still a couple great things about it. Here is one: Unlike applying to graduate school, where one completes an application and sends it off only to wait 6 months for a answer about whether or not you are selected by the admission board, with medical credentialing we will often know much closer to the beginning of the process whether an insurance company (insurance panel) is going to accept you into their network. In fact, we generally know right when they extend us a provider application!
After we know that you will be accepted, the medical credentialing process is one where you simply need to complete a lot of paperwork, and jump through a series of hoops. Of course, when you work with our medical credentialing team, we do this for you…
If it’s a simple process why would I hire someone to do it for you? Because though it be simple, the process of actually filling out the applications and following up with each insurance company can take a long, long time. Each application will take you about 10 or so hours to fill out; then, you’ll need to spend additional time calling the companies to ask if they’ve received your application; then, you have to continue to call the companies to see where your application is in the process. It’s possible that it has hit a snag and need your attention.
If you don’t want to spend your time and energy on filling out these apps and talking to insurance companies, you don’t have to. You can let us take the reins. If you’d like to learn more, simply call us a 1-855-664-5154. We look forward to talking with you!
