Clear

The consequences of incorrect provider enrollment and credentialing are extreme (for both you and your patients). You can be terminated from payer networks, lose hospital admitting privileges, see dramatic reductions in new patients, and ultimately serious reductions in your revenue.

Provider enrollment and credentialing is complex. Each payer and facility can have slightly different requirements, which can easily trip you up and lead to serious backlash. However, with a firm handle on the basics, you can avoid delayed payments due to credentialing and enrollment errors and ensure that your revenue keeps flowing.

That’s where credentialing and enrollment expert, Tracey Tokheim, can help. During her  90-minute online training session, she’ll walk you through the most important aspects of provider credentialing and enrollment, and help you ensure everything sails through the approval process the first time.

Here are just a few of the step-by-step strategies you’ll receive by taking advantage of this 90-minute online training:

  • Proven process to overcome the top barriers to successful enrollment
  • Identify application red flags fast and stop them from hurting your revenue
  • Avoid missed deadlines with proven provider enrollment activity tracking
  • Master electronic database application processes
  • Pin down clear hand-offs to avoid details falling through the cracks
  • Implement proven expirables management and stop being dropped
  • Proven Initial Application Process Checklist to head off missed deadlines
  • Head off the most common references errors
  • And so much more…

Unlike hospitals that enlist full time credentialing and enrollment professionals, most medical practices like yours put this process on an already busy existing staff member and just expect it to get done. Well, if this is you, you are not alone. By attending this interactive online training, you’ll get the inside scoop on what you need to do to file more accurate applications and avoid delayed or lost reimbursement due to credentialing errors.

I'm brand new to credentialing, so this was very helpful to me. The sample checklist will be especially beneficial. I also did not think much about networking with local hospitals and reaching out to the payers as a resource prior to this web experience.
