Payers call it different things: Credentialing, validation, contracting, etc, but no matter what they call it you can guarantee that it is a complex process that can be difficult to manage. Credentialing is one area of the revenue cycle process where mistakes can cost your practice 10’s of thousands of dollars just by overlooking one letter or notice.
When you trust Merem Healthcare Solutions, you get the peace-of-mind that your credentialing status is being managed and maintained by our experienced credentialing reps. We find that it is too easy for a paper to fall through the cracks, so we do not wait around for your payers to send notice of revalidation/recredentialing, we stay proactive.
During your onboarding process, our credentialing manager will help you to compile electronic copies of all necessary credentialing documents from your CV to Malpractice coverage certificate. Next, we will conduct an audit of your credentialing status by contacting your payers. From there, all we typically need is your signature as required.

Why Is Medical Credentialing Important?
Medical Credentialing is becoming increasingly important because it is the procedure that allows patients to trust their healthcare providers. Common credentialing errors cause scheduling delays, fluctuation in revenue cycle, and much more. It’s important to take the appropriate amount of time necessary for credentialing, instead of waiting a month before a new physician arrives.
Through a standardized process that involves data collection, primary source verification and committee review, patients are assured of their healthcare professional’s merit and experience.
