Due to the Affordable Care Act, all Americans now have access to affordable health insurance coverage; which means that millions of people who were previously uninsured will gain coverage.
It has become more necessary than ever for providers to be in-network with insurance companies and have proper staff affiliation with hospitals. More patients will be using their health insurance benefits rather than paying for services out-of-pocket.
The process of becoming an in-network healthcare provider is becoming more difficult every day. Insurance companies are becoming inundated with enrollment applications for this previously uninsured population.
Closed provider panels make the process for physicians, extenders, counselors or any other health care professional more challenging and difficult. Some panels that claim to be “closed” are really just being selective about which providers they are adding.
Knowing how to position one’s self, and having credentialing/payor enrollment experts to assist you, can go a long way when it comes to acquiring network participation.
