What is Healthcare Provider Credentialing?
Provider credentialing in healthcare is the process by which medical organizations verify the credentials of healthcare providers to ensure they have the required licenses, certifications, and skills to properly care for patients.
The process is typically used by physicians, and is sometimes referred to as
How Long Can the Credentialing Process Take?
A physician can be credentialed to work at a hospital - or credentialed and approved to be in-network for a health insurance company - in 30 days, under a best-case scenario. In many cases, the process can take 60 to 90 days and even longer, if you have to spend a lot of time pulling together all of your information and documents. And sometimes, especially with insurance companies, it can take six months or longer. Working with an experienced, digital credentialing company, like ViTel, will ensure you have the latest state-specific information regarding credentialing. You also own your credentials, with the ability to send an electronic credentialing package to any third party you choose.
