A: Finding a closed panel can be frustrating. However, sometimes when panels say they are closed, they are still accepting providers, but on a limited basis. In the case of a panel saying that they are closed, we can still submit an appeal to the insurance company on your behalf. During an appeal, we will try to connect with the insurance company representative assigned to your area. We will then stress important parts of your qualifications and clinical practice. For instance, perhaps you have a specialty that the insurance company desires, or you are practicing in a neighborhood that is underserved. We do have success with many of our appeals. However, if a company is saying that their panel is closed, it might not be possible to get on the panel at that time.

Sometimes, but it’s highly unlikely. We have had success credentialing such providers on a limited basis—generally in areas that are very underserved. In most cases, insurance companies are looking to network exclusively with fully licensed healthcare providers.

Yes! Like insurance companies, EAPs are valuable third party payers to be credentialed with. The credentialing process is very similar to being credentialed with insurance companies. In fact, some of the major insurance companies also offer an EAP. Popular EAPs include: ComPsych, OptumHealth, Magellan, Horizon Health, Mines and Associates, ValueOptions, Cigna, and Harris-Rothenburg International.
