Are you just out of dental school and looking forward to starting your own practice? Are you dealing with a to-do list that feels like it will never be done? The credentialing process is often one more item on a long list for dental graduates that are just starting out. However, the process can be completed on your behalf by a skilled credentialing service, like the one offered by APEX Reimbursement Specialists.
The Credentialing Process Takes Time
Credentialing has never been simple, and constantly-changing requirements make things even more difficult. APEX Reimbursement Specialists knows the entire process inside and out, and we can take care of filing all paperwork on your behalf. While the credentialing process for a single insurance company might not be too intimidating, it’s important to remember that you will need to complete the entire process for every insurance company you want to register with, including Medicaid.
The Credentialing Process Requires Follow-Up
The credentialing process starts by gathering up your TIN number, phone number and other important information that insurance companies need to know. If you are unsure about anything that is required since you are opening your first dental practice, APEX can help. Once we have everything that we need, we will hear from each insurance carrier separately over the course of 30-90 days. Unfortunately, sometimes the paperwork is lost, misplaced or delayed once it reaches the insurance company. APEX will regularly check in with each company to make sure the process is running smoothly and prevent your paperwork from ending up on the bottom of the stack.
The Credentialing Process Takes Another Thing Off of Your Plate
Starting a dental practice is not an easy feat, and the cumbersome credentialing process adds additional stress onto you and your staff. New dental school graduates have never needed to complete all of the credentialing requirements before, and the credentialing learning curve is steep and unforgiving. By partnering with a professional credentialing service that works with insurance companies on a daily basis, you can worry about all of the other aspects of opening your practice and leave the details to us.
