What is Credentialing?
Credentialing is the process in which an insurance company verifies that a healthcare professional has the necessary education and training to provide treatment to their members. This process includes verifying the provider's education, license, specialty, and work history.
Credentialing proves the legitimacy of a healthcare provider and is done by insurance companies when joining their network. Credentialing is often required whether you are in-network or out-of-network with an insurance company. Once a provider is credentialed, they are eligible to become contracted with the insurance they choose.
How long does the Credentialing process take?
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 45-120 days.
What events require credentialing/updating insurance companies?
Some examples of events your business could experience that would require some level of credentialing/enrollment:
Changing your primary practice address, billing address, or correspondence address
Adding an additional practice location
Adding a provider to an existing contract
New tax-ID change
Legal business name change
How much do you charge for Credentialing?
Our fees for Credentialing depend on the number of insurance companies you are looking to join and how many providers you are looking to enroll. For a customized quote, please fill out this form.
