No Time For Credentialing?

No Time For Credentialing?

Did you know your medical billing partner can do far more than handling the flawless transactions of your medical coding and billing – they can also help you get credentialed with various carriers to insure that the services rendered by your practice are covered by various insurers that require a physician be part of their network in order to recognize claims submitted.

If you have a busy practice, you may be putting off getting credentialed with additional insurance companies because you just don’t have the time to fill out the forms, questionnaires and other information in order to get approved with additional carriers.

You know from previously getting credentialed that the process can take months for the carriers to process the paperwork and you just do not have the time to fill out the detailed forms and then call the insurance company for follow-up on your application. Wouldn’t it be great if someone else could take over the hassle for you?

Your medical billing partner can do this as well as your medical billing and coding. They have the knowledge and expertise to not only get your claims paid but to also get you credentialed with as many carriers as you want to be able to provide services through. This includes Worker’s Compensation, most large insurance carriers and Medicare. Whether you want to be credentialed through an individual carrier or one large network, the choice is yours.

Once your application is submitted, your medical billing partner will stay on top of your credentialing request and keep checking the status and make sure your application is handled in a timely process. This constant follow up insures that your credentialing happens faster and you can accept a wider scope of patients.

The more carriers you are credentialed at, the more patients you can service! Get credentialed – it is an asset to your practice.
