Not All Reimbursement Rates Are Created Equal

I remember the call distinctly. I had just written an article for a publication titled “How to Negotiate Reimbursement Rates.” Dr. Jordan, a New York dermatologist, called and asked to speak with the author. I replied it was me, and he said, “I really need your help. I can’t survive under these reimbursement rates.” I let Dr. Jordan know I could absolutely help him and would need a few items before getting started. I begin explaining the process, and he stopped me in the middle and, in a strongly worded statement, said, “I need to meet with you immediately. In person.”

What’s the difference between Credentialing and Contracting a Provider?

What Is Credentialing?

Credentialing is the formal process of verifying a provider’s qualifications. This ensures that doctors and nurses have the proper training and experience to provide the highest level of care to patients. The provider credentialing process is completed by verifying all provider documents and ensuring that they are valid and current. Most health insurance companies will not even offer reimbursements if providers lack medical credentialing.
