If you’re a mental health provider—say, a licensed marriage and family therapist, a licensed professional counselor, a clinical psychologist, or any other mental health professional for that matter—you probably know by now just how important it is to get on insurance panels. Or, in other words, to get networked with insurance companies. It is possible, however, that you need a refresher:
The Importance of Getting on Insurance Panels
Let’s keep it simple: it’s important that you’re credentialed with various insurance companies so that you can take your clients’ insurance and provide them with the healthcare that they need and deserve. More likely than not, if you aren’t credentialed with a client’s insurance company, they’ll take their business elsewhere.
An Inside Look at the Credentialing Process
Unfortunately, the process of getting networked with insurance companies can be a long and difficult one. Why? One word: applications.
1. First, you have to submit an application for every company you want to get credentialed with. And each one can take as long as 10 or so hours to complete.
2. THEN, once you’ve submitted your applications, you have to call each company to follow up and ensure they’ve received your application.
3. THEN, you have to keep calling to check on the progress (just in case there’s a problem that needs your attention).
This process can take up a lot of your time. Not to mention it can cause a lot of headaches… that is, unless you hire someone to take care of this credentialing process for you.
