Are you on the fence about whether a credentialing specialist would be an asset to your organization? Here are some common questions and answers about The Shealy Group's credentialing services, which may help you decide!
Why do I need a credentialing specialist for my organization?
The initial credentialing or enrollment and upkeep of enrolled providers is time consuming and sometimes confusing because no two payers have the same process. We are familiar with the various processes and know the ‘ins and outs’ of provider credentialing. By allowing us to address your credentialing needs, you enable your current staff to fully focus on their roles while allowing bandwidth for work opportunities that you may have for them. Let our credentialing specialists take the stress off of you and your team.
Is contracting a credentialing specialist cost effective?
Yes! Using a contracted credentialing specialist that is not ‘in house’ means that you will not have to hire someone or assign the task to a current staff member, both of which require more compensation. The cost of hiring, paying for company benefits and paying for training are all costs that your organization will save when using one of our credentialing specialists.
Are your credentialing specialists qualified to work on behalf of my organization? Do they have the industry knowledge?
Our credentialing specialists have years of medical office experience, healthcare administration education and medical insurance experience. We not only have firsthand healthcare industry knowledge, but we also have contacts with major insurance companies that help us to ensure your credentialing applications are being processed correctly and in a timely manner.
