Small Practices: Provider Enrollment Tips

12637410_S_tips.jpg

No health care provider or supplier can afford to be dropped from a medical plan. It's vital to maintain your payer relationships to ensure a steady stream of reimbursements from each plan in which you are enrolled.

If your goal is to grow your practice and increase your revenue, enrolling in more plans is key. But how can you do that without dramatically increasing the administrative burden of enrollments and revalidations?

Use an online credentialing service. Save time and money with our unique, cloud-based, state of the art provider enrollment software system. Once your documents are loaded into our database, our skilled specialists track applications, expiration dates and recredentialing requirements for Medicare and Medicaid as well as all insurance carriers. We can handle any volume that you have. Best of all, using our services costs less than having a full-time employee try to do payer enrollment tasks manually.

Stay on top of deadlines. Don't let your enrollments or credentialing lapse because you are overwhelmed with a cumbersome manual system. You'll be costing your practice real money if reimbursements are denied. We monitor all deadlines to ensure that there are no enrollment gaps.

Keep payer information current for provider directory accuracy. You won't attract new patients if your listing is inaccurate in provider directories. An online service ensures that any practice changes are correctly reported to payers.

Plan for the future. Payer enrollment is critical but it's equally important that all revalidations occur accurately and on a timely basis. Using an online service like 1st Assistant ensures that your information is accessible and ready when you need it.

It's a win-win when you automate your provider enrollments. Your provider information will be accurate and timely and your staff can get back to supporting you in your vital job of providing excellent health care services!
