Every healthcare provider is required to enroll in an insurance credentialing process to accept patients with insurance. Hospital credentialing is the most intensive credentialing process for medical providers, repeated more frequently than other credentialing standards, and involving more organization contacts and supporting documents.

Unfortunately, provider credentialing and enrolling with the payers is becoming more difficult with each passing day. With most insurance panels getting overloaded due to the spurt in membership applications and a lot of them being selective about enrolling providers, the process of enrolling your facility is becoming more challenging. One error or misstep within the credentialing process could literally bankrupt your practice.

Under the circumstances, outsourcing your credentialing and enrollment not only looks like an attractive option but also makes financial sense. By outsourcing to a professional organization like TLK Medical Group, you not only reduce the stress level on your current staff but also ensure the top priorities of your organization do not get shuffled to the bottom of the stack.

Provider Credentialing and Enrollment Services

Credentialing of the Physicians / Healthcare providers is essential, i.e., certified and enrolled with the Payer’s network, and authorized to provide services to patients enrolled in the Payer’s plan. Credentialing verifies whether the physician / healthcare provider meets standard clinical care delivery measures, in which the payer verifies that a physician has the proper training, license, experience, certifications, affiliations, malpractice insurance, and adverse clinical events.

Payments to physicians who are not credentialed and enrolled with them may be delayed or refused. As a result, they have an adverse financial impact on the practice. Physicians can take advantage of our Payer credentialing and enrollment services in the following areas:
