Today's managed care companies and government health care payers require credentialing to ensure that medical practices and physicians meet their health care provider requirements. Hospitals also require physician credentialing before allowing hospital appointments or visits.
Physician credentialing is a very thorough, and time-consuming procedure requiring confirmation of licenses obtained, residency programs completed, services provided, and other qualifications such as references from colleagues and industry professionals. Furthermore, it could include investigations into liability claims and Department of Health and Human Services status.
