Why Nursing credential important?
Insurance acceptability is Mandatory
Medical approval is important for nurses regardless of whether they start or maintain a practice. Although many veteran healthcare providers have successfully practiced cash-only, they now feel that it is necessary to obtain medical approval. It is important to have insurance panels or to network with insured plans because health care in the country is available more universally (insurance panels allow practitioners to accept new and potential patients’ payments from third parties, a component of the practice’s growth.
Covered Patient Services Application
Many practitioners who have previously accepted cash-only payments now provide insurance plans to more people due to health reform. Healthcare costs are on the increase. HMO planning has gained prominence over PPO planning, leading to obsolete non-network benefits. Furthermore, healthcare has been made fairer and allows services to cover new or preexisting conditions.
Today, patients do not hesitate to wonder whether they accept their insurance – they actually require them. Patients were in the past willing to pay the doctors, chiropractors, mental health workers and other health care professionals outside of their pocket for services. They want to ensure that their health care is paid by the insurance company, given the increasing costs of health premiums. For health care providers to stay with the current market, it is important that they accept insurance and do not want to be excluded from attracting new patients. This requires registering or receiving credentials in insurance plans.

It is critical that you respond to those requests as soon as possible, or we will be unable to process your application.
(2) House of Outsourcing cross-checks specific data points with the “primary source.” That includes the state licensing board, your professional training/education, and so on.
(3) Once the source verification is complete, your application is presented to a committee of your peers, who will decide whether or not you meet our requirements.
(4) If your application is approved, you will end up receiving a welcome packet and guidelines in the mail.
Q2: How long will it take for my application to be processed?
House Of Outsourcing aims to complete credentialing applications in 60 days or less. This could take longer if you submit an incomplete application or do not include requested attachments with your application.
Q3: How frequently do providers need to be re-credentialed?
Providers must renew their credentialing every three years, beginning with the date of their initial credentialing (unless their state has other requirements). To remain a participating provider, a provider must successfully pass re-credentialing.
Q4: What happens during the re-credentialing process?
After about two and a half years in the network, you will be notified for re-credentialing. Your specialty specific instructions will be included in the notification. You may not even need to take any action at the time of re-credentialing if your application is on CAQH and is kept up to date.
Q5: What if the Credentialing Committee rejects either my initial participation application or my re-credentialing application?
Depending on the reasons for the committee’s decision, you may be given the option to provide additional Information and file an appeal. Your denial or termination letter will explain your rights as well as the timelines you must adhere to.
Q6: Can I submit a state application in the state where I practice?
True. House Of Outsourcing follows all of the state-mandated application guidelines.

NPI stands for National Provider Identification (NPI). If you are unsure how to obtain an NPI, you should contact your state licensing board to learn more.
Q8: What exactly is a CV, and is it required?
CV stands for curriculum vitae. It’s similar to a resume in that it includes a summary of your educational background, work history, professional license, and any other special training you’ve received. You are not required to submit a CV to the House of Outsourcing. Instead, fill out the application questions.

Q10: Why do I have to send you the same Information for re-credentialing every time?
House of outsourcing will obtain the Information from CAQH if you have a CAQH application and have kept it up to date. You must submit a CAQH application if you have not already done so. After you have completed the application, you must keep the records up to date. In addition, if your clinic is accredited as an organization, you must submit a separate “group” credentialing application.
Q11: I'm not sure why I was rejected (or terminated) access to the network?
The letter you received should have a name and a phone number where you can get more information.
