INDUSTRY VETERANS

We Answer Your Credentialing Needs

As a Revenue Cycle Management Company (RCM) we understand first-hand the impact provider credentialing has on cash flow to an organization. Trying to understand and manage credentialing is a tedious and time-consuming endeavor that rapidly consumes staff resources. Understandably so, the majority of practices lack expertise in this area because it is a function that is not performed with much regularity. In addition, the lack of the necessary tools to properly and pro-actively manage the credentialing process leads to reactionary measures that are enacted only when claims begin to deny due to Non-participating and/or Out of Network issues. Increasing government regulations, payer specific requirements, and a general lack of industry standardization in this area all contribute to making credentialing predisposed to pitfalls.

CREDENTIALING SERVICES

New Providers

One of the most frustrating parts for new providers is the amount of time and number of requests they receive from staff that inexperienced with credentialing. The continual harassment stems from lack of experience knowing what payers will request and want to see on credentialing applications. This back-and-forth is also expanding the amount of time it is going to take to get a provide credentialed.

Med USA has developed a proprietary Provider Enrollment Packet to facilitate the gathering of required provider information and documents to credential a new provider as expeditiously as possible. The Provider Enrollment Packets provides us with the vast majority of information we will need to fill out all the payer applications and get them submitted to the payer while eliminating all of the back-and-forth with the provider.

Ways to Reduce the Amount of Time it Take to Credential

Begin The Process Early

Although there are some payer limitations on how early you can submit credentialing paperwork for a provider – start the process as early as possible. Often times credentialing can be completed within 90 days with most payers but give yourself as much time as possible. As payers expand their enrollment requirements to include Non-Physician Practitioners (NPP) the enrollment timelines have lengthened tremendously. In addition, as payer’s merge and consolidate operations the days of being able to “pull strings” and expedite paperwork are becoming a thing of the past.

Review the information you have obtained from the Provider and scrutinize everything.

The Details Matter

  • Ensure information on payer applications is legible.
  • Copies of licenses and certificates must be clear and decipherable.
  • Dates and time-lines on CV’s should clearly line-up and gaps in time should be addressed.
  • Use the correct color pen. As petty as it sounds there are payers that will reject applications if information and signatures are not in blue ink.

It’s estimated that over 80% of applications submitted are missing important information that is need for a payer to properly process an application.
