Provider Credentialing: Which Insurance Companies Should I Get Credentialed With?

Most of the time, when people in private practice seek to get on insurance panels, they have a general idea of the panels they want to get credentialed with. Whether through research, or by having to turn down clients with a specific insurance, you know which insurance companies would help out your practice.

Or, if you are completely new to private practice, there are major insurance companies that people want to be credentialed with: Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, etc…. The key is this: remember to make sure you choose provider credentialing that benefits your practice. Sometimes, the smaller, city-specific insurances can help your private practice succeed.

If you are the only practice in a city that accepts a small insurance company, your clientele could be huge. There would be no competition for receiving the clients you wanted. If you are unsure of which panels to get credentialed with, we can help with that. We have a database of research, information, and experience that we can draw upon to help you help your practice succeed.

Like what? Well, our experience has taught us a few tricks for determining which insurance companies are best to work with: first, look at what your potential clients are using; second, look at what companies other healthcare providers are networked with. Obviously, you want to work with the companies that the majority of your clients use—because the whole point you need to get credentialed is to accept their insurance. Now, the second trick can help you as well because that will also tip you off to what insurance companies potential clients use. Whether they be big players in the insurance world or smaller, regional-based companies.
