THE PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL CREDENTIALING PROCESS
Credentialing plays a large role in a medical professional’s association with insurance companies and approval from the state they practice in. The process is designed to verify information about staff and physicians to ensure legitimacy and appropriate experience. Both private practices and hospitals will undergo medical credentialing to ensure that they meet the proper requirements. Medical credentialing can be a very extensive, time-consuming process depending on associated state laws and the applicant’s history.
The following factors will be carefully reviewed and verified in the process:
- Completion of residency programs
- Authentication of services
- Certified areas of specialty
