Practitioner Credentialing: What Are the Biggest Challenges Facing Practitioner Self-Credentialing?

The number one challenge that has always been and always will be is time. Attempting to manage your practice and jump through all the loops those insurance panels put you through can and will be a nightmare if you try to do it on your own. Just imagine working with one of your clients and you suddenly remember you have a deadline for one of your many applications you have to turn in. You can’t just leave your client to send in that application, so you miss the deadline and have to start the application process all over. Issues like this are common for people who try self-credentialing for their practice.

But wait, can’t I knock this out pretty quickly so I don’t have to worry about them interfering with my practice? Actually, despite what most people think, the credentialing process takes up a good amount of your time. Why is this? Well, you have to fill out a separate application for each company you hope to get credentialed with. Nope, it’s not like the common app in college where you can submit the same papers to different people. Then, once you’ve filled out and submitted your applications, you have to follow up… again and again and again. To ensure that the process is going smoothly and your application hasn’t gotten held up somewhere. I know—what an inconvenience.

This is where we come in.

We are prepared to make sure you never have to go through the scenarios mentioned above. Collectively, we have years of experience in credentialing so we know exactly how to put you in position to join the insurance panels you are interested in taking insurance for. Insurance companies really struggle when it comes to informing practitioners that there are problems in their application; when that occurs it usually ends with an automatic denial for the practitioner. These same insurance companies also may say that you did not complete parts of your application, but in reality, they are not attempting to find it after they have misplaced it. We will attempt to remedy issues by frequently checking on your application.
