Steps To Take When You’ve Lost Your Data
Provider Enrollment refers to the process of requesting participation in a health insurance network as a Participating Provider. The provider enrollment process involves requesting enrollment/contracting with a plan; completing the plans credentialing/enrollment application; submitting copies of licenses, insurance, and other documents; signing a contract; and any other steps that may be unique to a carrier. Many commercial carriers utilize CAQH to obtain credentialing information from a central location, and require that providers have a complete and up to date profile in the CAQH system as part of the enrollment process.
When receiving a provider enrollment request, health plans use the credentialing process to ensure that the provider is properly educated, trained, and meet any other specific insurance network enrollment requirements for participation. After credentialing process is complete, then the network will offer a contract for participation to the provider.
The provider enrollment processing time varies by payor. Some commercial plans take as long as 180 days to complete the credentialing process and then another 30 – 45 days for contracting, while other have the entire credentialing and contracting complete within 90 days. When submitting documents for enrollment, contracts, or following up on applications it is important to document your steps by utilizing certified mail, overnight mail services, email, fax logs, and documenting phone conversations with agent names and numbers.
There are many service companies that assist healthcare providers with the enrollment process for a fee. These companies handle all the paperwork and follow up with the insurance companies on behalf of the provider. The value of these services lie in the time saved and general expertise of dealing with insurance companies on a daily basis.
