Get on Insurance Panels FAQ – What you need to know about credentialing
What is the credentialing process, when working with you?
Essentially, we manage all of the tedious, time-consuming work you don’t have time for.
We start by sending you a simple application we call the Master Survey. It asks you basic questions about what your education, expertise and license. This allows us to get to know you and so that we can identify the best way to get you on the panels you want.
Once this is done, we work with you to determine which insurance companies are a great match for your practice. We’ll provide a list of our best recommendations after researching the area you operate out of.
At that point, we handle the strenuous process of retrieving the credentialing applications, filling them out, submitting them and then following up continually to ensure that the insurance company approves the applications timely and efficiently.
We update you throughout this process via phone and an online dashboard that displays the status of your applications. We let you know immediately whenever we need additional information for your application, such as signatures.
