Timely reimbursement from insurance companies is crucial for the financial health of any practice. However, the provider credentialing process can create a significant bottleneck, delaying payments and impacting cash flow.

This article explores the challenges associated with in-house medical credentialing and how partnering with a dedicated credentialing service like Unislink can streamline the process, accelerate reimbursements, and free your staff to focus on patient care.

What is Medical Credentialing?
The credentialing process in healthcare is defined as the work that goes into the verification of a provider’s qualifications and experience to participate in an insurance network.

The Challenges of In-House Medical Credentialing

Managing the credentialing process internally can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive endeavor. Here are some common pain points practices face:

  • Complexity: Credentialing requirements, paperwork and expectations vary significantly between insurance payers. Keeping up-to-date on these ever-changing processes and deadlines can be overwhelming for busy practice staff.
  • Time commitment: Gathering, organizing, and submitting the extensive documentation required for each application is a lengthy and tedious process. This can divert valuable time and resources away from core clinical tasks.
  • Incomplete applications: Missing or inaccurate information on credentialing applications leads to delays and medical claim denials, further prolonging the revenue reimbursement cycle.
  • Lack of expertise: Navigating the intricacies of credentialing is quite challenging without specialized knowledge and experience.
  • Limited follow-up: Proactively following up with insurance companies to ensure applications are processed efficiently is often neglected due to competing priorities.
  • Renewal surprises: Without robust tracking systems credentialing renewals often surprise in-house credentialing teams leading to unexpected denials.
