CREDENTIALING AND PAYER ENROLLMENT
The business of taking care of patients requires paperwork . . . a lot of it. CAQH, DEA, Managed Care Payers, Medicaid, Hospital Affiliations, Source Verifications, and State License Registries, just to name a few. Depending upon the size of your practice, managing documents and expiration dates alone can add up to the equivalent of a full time employee’s salary and benefits. We can help. With our unique dashboard and dedicated credentialing team, we take the cumbersome process of credentialing and enrolling with the payers out of your hands. From bringing on board new employed providers, to opening a new practice, to maintaining your credentials, we get it done.
PAYER AND MANAGED CARE CONTRACT MANAGEMENT
Are you receiving the most value out of the work that you do? When was the last time you looked at your fee schedules or had a detailed understanding of your Payer contracts? Ensuring that you have the most up to date contracts and understand your payment rates is critical to managing your revenues. IPMSO’s practice financial team has worked on hundreds of contracts, compiling contract cheat sheets and performing rate comparisons, and assisting clients to increase their payments through payer mix adjustments, contract negotiations, and fee schedule changes. We keep your contract analysis up-to-date and available to you.
