Credentialing & Provider Enrollment

Credentialing and provider enrollment can be one of the most frustrating jobs for individuals who are unfamiliar with the process.

Let DoctorsManagement get the job done quickly and efficiently.

    Understanding the Medical Credentialing Process 

    Credentialing is an application process of organizing enrollment information and verifying a physician’s professional records to ascertain their eligibility and qualifications. It ensures a provider has proper credentials to practice medicine and includes hospital privileges, malpractice insurance, education, board certification, professional references, and additional information.

    In order for organizations to attain primary source verification of the practitioner’s education, training, certificates, provider type, and licensure and maintain a file on each provider, they must be given permission to research their background, education, licensure, and professional certifications. Provider enrollment applications are part of the enrollment process and are completed to help determine the medical practice physician’s eligibility.

    A physician must be credentialed for their scope of practice, including procedures and special equipment they will use in those procedures.

    A standard credentialing process can take 3 to 4 months based on the guidelines. The application and approval process should take about 90 days. 

    Here’s what you can expect:

    1. Analyze your specific network needs and determine who the top payers are.
    2. Execute a contract for the work.
    3. Gather necessary documents from the provider and attain a list of contacts at the insurance companies.
    4. Attain confirmation that the application was received.
    5. Inform the provider of the executed documents so they can begin claim submission.
