What is the Credentialing Process?
If you've never dabbled with credentialing, you may be unsure where to even begin. Begin by analyzing the payer mix in your area to determine which insurances would be most beneficial to be in-network. Once you have your list of potential provider networks, you can initiate the credentialing process.
The credentialing process for most health insurance companies is simple.
While the process may seem straight forward, there are many issues that can crop up during the credentialing process that can delay your enrollment.
Each insurance company has their own credentialing process with their own unique timeline. For most commercial insurance companies the credentialing and contracting process can take 90-120 days.
While there isn't a way to speed up the credentialing process, there are a few things providers can do to ensure their applications process as quickly as possible.
