All dentists need to go through the credentialing process so that they can be counted as in-network providers with insurance companies. Unfortunately, that is just the beginning of your relationship! Recredentialing is a process that takes place every two or three years depending on company requirements.
This time-consuming endeavor has to be completed, otherwise, you risk losing patients to in-network providers or claims being denied. What are some of the benefits of working with APEX Reimbursement Specialists for your recredentialing?
Automating the Process
The recredentialing process has to occur every 24-36 months, and you might be surprised how fast that deadline creeps up. Missing a single deadline can be an extremely expensive error. For example, your reimbursement rates or default provider agreement might not be offered to new applicants, and missing the recredentialing deadline can force you to start the process again as if you are new. Your practice will also be out of network until the application is approved.
When you work with APEX Reimbursement Specialists for your recredentialing process, we will handle the process for you so that it almost feels as if it is automated. We can handle everything from application and document submission to follow-up to ensure there are no issues, which lets you focus on what you need to do.
We Handle Following Up
Insurance companies will not proactively reach out to you if something is missing from your paperwork or holding up the process. That means that it’s up to you (or us) to do so. APEX Reimbursement Specialists can follow up throughout the recredentialing process to ensure that everything is on track. We will make sure that you don’t get held up in the process and miss deadlines as a result.
Get the Best Reimbursement Rates Possible
Insurance companies are not in the business of making sure that dentists are being compensated as much as possible for the work that they do. One result of this is that some insurance companies attempt to lower reimbursement rates during the recredentialing process so that yours will match the default rates offered. APEX Reimbursement Specialists know how to spot the various tricks that insurance companies may do so that you are always getting the reimbursement that you deserve. We can also help you raise your reimbursement rates across the board, whether or not it’s time for recredentialing.
