Medical credentialing is verifying a medical practitioner’s qualifications to ascertain his or her ability to provide healthcare services. As part of the healthcare credentialing process, insurance payers verify a physician’s license, education, certifications, and experience and find out if there is any malpractice history. Credentialing solutions consist of features that streamline the process of obtaining the documentation from providers and verifying their authenticity, not to mention reducing the costs involved. Payers might refuse reimbursement to providers not credentialed and enrolled with them.
A provider who has undergone the medical credentialing process will be included in the payer's network. All the members of the payer's health plans would be able to visit the provider for consultations and other healthcare services. Being credentialed by a payer drastically increases the number of potential patients who would be turning up. This will increase the revenues of the providers.
OSP can design and develop credentialing systems to include features that streamline the entire credentialing process. The entire lifecycle of the credentialing process for healthcare providers is highly elaborate and is followed by many steps to include the physicians in the payer network. In light of this, our credentialing software will accelerate this process and reduce the overhead and time required to complete it.
The entire process flow of health care credentialing is tedious and involves numerous manual and repetitive steps. But solutions such as the credentialing management system that OSP would build introduce automation into credentialing activities. As a result, the staff at insurance organizations who handle credentialing processes can work much faster without worrying about errors. Automation eliminates or minimizes the need for human intervention to boost the speed and productivity of operations.

Medical credentialing is the process in which a physician’s qualifications are verified to ensure they are fit to provide medical services.

Additionally, payers also carry out physician credentialing to enrol them in health plans so that their services can be covered.
Medical credentialing is the process of organizing and verifying the background and qualifications of a physician. This includes assessing their education, certification, work history, references, lawsuits (if any), credentials, etc. It is important to ensure patient safety and enrol doctors into payers’ health plans.

Such companies streamline the entire medical credentialing process as they are well acquainted with it and are often helpful in resolving any issues that may arise.
Providers need to be credentialed when they begin their practice, move to a new state, change employers, or want to accept new insurance from patients. The initial credentialing application could take weeks since everything from work history, education, background, qualification, and experience would need to be included.
Medical credentialing is the process in which a physician’s qualifications are verified to ensure that they are fit to provide medical services.

The process of medical credentialing works by verifying a physician’s credentials with primary sources. In other words, a credentials verification organization (CVO) will contact the university from where the provider graduated and completed their residency and verify the provider’s degree and other academic credentials. Furthermore, the verification organization will also contact the licensing agencies and certification boards for further assessment. This is followed by checking work history from previous hospitals.
The costs of credentialing depend on the provider’s specialty, the type of facility, and the CVO doing the credentialing. The application fee for this process can be about $300 – $400 after the initial credentialing; periodic re-credentialing would need to be done, which will cost lesser. The cost would also depend on the number of insurance companies the providers credential with.
