Expanding your staff? Kassouf’s Healthcare Advisory Team’s credentialing services take care of this consuming process for you, allowing you time to invest in your new providers.
Credentialing is a process that insurance companies use to verify a provider’s education, training, and professional experience and to ensure the provider meets their internal requirements for serving as an in-network provider on their panel. Kassouf initiates the credentialing and network enrollment process for most payors and handles the process from start to finish. Insurance companies are required to provide web-based provider directories listing all in-network providers for their plans, so it is imperative to make sure all of your providers are credentialed and in-network to be included in the directories.
We provide maintenance for your existing providers, ensuring that re-enrollment and re-credentialing applications are handled as deadlines arise. Our team also maintains providers’ CAQH profiles, which must be attested multiple times a year.
For some payors, the credentialing and enrollment process can take over about 120 days to complete, and each individual application can require up to 6 hours of work. Our team of experts is trained to take on this process, alleviating your headaches and letting you focus on your practice. Contact us to make sure your practice is prepared.
