The Credentialing Process in Medical Billing
Provider credentialing involves checking a healthcare professional’s medical qualifications to prove their eligibility in administering patient care. It’s best to initiate when a new hire is onboarded and multiple times throughout their career. To become an in-network provider, many healthcare providers, including Medicare and Medicaid, request credential verification. You’ll first need to determine which insurance, HMOs, and PPOs are the most widely used plans in your area.
For a flat rate of $300 per provider, we can help you:
- Determine if you are qualified to apply for in-network status with numerous health insurance companies, HMOs and PPOs.
- Access the paperwork needed to apply.
- Fill-out online applications, such as CAQH, and apply to obtain an NPI.
- Follow-up and track your application status while supplying missing information as needed.
- Complete any re-credentialing paperwork as requested by insurance plans.
Medical Credentialing Solutions
Medical Credentialing is the most effective way to ensure your provider information is accurate and up-to-date. Plus, it guarantees your affiliation with insurance plans, which in turn provides you with third-party reimbursement for your patient care.
It’s often the case that insurance, HMO, or PPO panels are closed, or do not accept a particular applicant. We cannot guarantee your acceptance into any specific panel, and you may end up paying Billing Advantage to apply to panels and still not be accepted into them.
To get started, we will request that you compile some documents and information. Then, you can leave the time-consuming tasks up to us. It’s important to note that medical credentialing is a lengthy process. Depending on the insurance carrier, the enrollment process can take up to six months to complete.
