What is Dental Credentialing?
As a dental health care provider, there are some steps you need to take with each insurance carrier to ensure that you are providing the best coverage for every one of your patients. This means that your licensure, certifications and overall practice history must be accurately documented, reviewed, approved, and the final dental insurance credentialing issued.
So What Goes Wrong?
If there are practitioners in your office without proper dental credentialing, any claims that they process will be delayed, leading to hang time in getting paid and even more time vying for proper verification.
You might be thinking that out-of-network providers get more cash, since they aren’t tied to various insurance company stipulations in terms of pricing for services. However, as an out-of-network provider, you’re much more likely to lose business rather than gain it, whether through lack of patient retention or lost time in determining credentialing approval.
