When onboarding a new midlevel/non-physician to your practice, the slightest mistake can result in significant reimbursement delays and rejection of your provider credentialing application package. To get your new midlevel/non-physician provider fully credentialed and contracted with payers, there are specific requirements, documents, and payer-specific requirements you must have right the first time. Failure to do so can impact your midlevel provider/practice revenue and greatly affect patient care. Even simple errors can get your set-up/transfer documents rejected by the payer leading to you starting the entire process over. It is important that your new midlevel/non-physician provider starts to see patients and gets paid as soon as possible.
During this session, Expert Cati Harris, CBCS, walks you through each step of the entire credentialing process for midlevel providers (PA, NP, Non-Physicians). You will learn documentation requirements, application requirements, payer-specific requirements, document, and application package prep, credentialing package submission, setup and maintenance of CAQH, PECOS, tracking of applications submitted to payers, and final steps once approval has been received. This will also include a review of provider revalidations. You will also learn how you can make your onboarding process more efficient and accurate to speed up your billing process and get paid more quickly.
