Credentialing is a labor and time-intensive process that every dental practice needs to complete to enroll with new insurance providers. Because it takes up so much work and requires attention to detail to execute properly, many dental practices find themselves overwhelmed by the process. However, outsourced credentialing services are one way to simplify the process and get the credentialing that you need without all of the effort. What are some of the benefits of working with a third party for your credentialing?

Understanding Credentialing Services

Outsourced credentialing services are one way to complete credentialing and recredentialing with the help of someone who knows what they are doing, like APEX Reimbursement Specialists. Instead of doing all of the paperwork yourself and taking care of follow-up, APEX Reimbursement Specialists can handle the whole process for you from start to finish.

Outsourced Credentialing Services Improve Efficiency

When you are doing credentialing on your own, DSOs, hospitals, and other healthcare businesses have to go through a tedious process. For many of these businesses, it can take months to finish the process. When you take advantage of outsourced credentialing services, you will have an experienced third-party handling everything on your behalf. This improves efficiency, as you’ll have a dedicated person organizing information, filling out paperwork, and following up with insurance providers as needed.

Outsourced Credentialing Services Eliminate Mistakes

Credentialing needs to be completed every year or two depending on the insurance provider, and in some cases, there are state-specific requirements. Many DSOs and practices are not experts in the process as a result. By working with outsourced credentialing services, you will be working with someone who does credentialing every day. They understand what needs to be done, how it needs to be done, and the common mistakes that can occur along the way. By working with experts from the outset, you can avoid mistakes that might tie up the credentialing process even more.  

Outsourced Credentialing Services Improve Efficiency

The third-party that you work with for outsourced credentialing services will work quicker and more efficiently than if you tried to complete the process on your own. You won’t need to worry about researching to see what has changed since last time, filling out confusing paperwork, and figuring out how to follow up to see if your application has been processed. Instead, there will be someone else taking care of it for you. This also lets you focus on running your dental practice instead of completing more administrative work!
