The Credentialing Process

Whether it’s referred to as the credentialing process, the provider credentialing process, or the insurance credentialing process, the highly involved process that must be carried out by physicians and health professionals is critical for a successful practice.

Going it alone.

Going with a specialist.


As a physician or mental health professional, you have two available options for completing the credentialing process for yourself and/or other members of your practice. The first is tackling the credentialing process on your own, and the second is working with a specialized credentialing service provider.

You’ll need to perform steps 1 through 6 for each insurance panel to which you wish to apply. On average, clinicians can expect to spend ten hours working on each panel.
