Provider Enrollment and Credentialing Services from Access Healthcare

Provider credentialing, the process of getting a physician or a provider affiliated with payers, is a critical step in the revenue cycle. The process enables patients to utilize their insurance cards to pay for medical services consumed and enables the provider to get reimbursed for the medical services provided.  Therefore, it is important for healthcare providers to get enrolled and credentialed with maximum payers so that patients can use their insurance plans in your practice - failing to do so will result in the patient looking for competing providers who are enrolled with the health insurance companies they are subscribed to.

However, the process of getting a provider credentialed with a payer involves a lot of manual work in terms of completing the application forms, providing clarifications to questions from payers and following up with them to close the credentialing request. Trust Access Healthcare to get you credentialed fasters as we understand the forms required by each payer, and their policies and procedures.
