This critical service includes credentialing as part of the hospital privileging process, as well as for the credentialing required by all insurance providers, including Medicare and Medicaid, prior to formalizing payer contracts.
Negotiating the collection and submission of all licenses, certificates, tax forms, degrees, along with a myriad of other documentation required to complete the Hawaii Credentialing Application (HCA), regularly requires the herculean efforts of our credentialing director and his staff.
Using sophisticated software designed specifically for this purpose, Catalyst currently provides credentialing verifications for the Heart Hospital of Austin, along with similar services for our startup clients, as well as on-going credentialing for numerous physicians and physician groups to keep all of their needs current. This software, for example, enables Infrahealth® to receive automatic license renewal reminders, and even when continuing medical education (CME) credits are due.
Infrahealth® plays an instrumental role in the timely completion of, and the submittal of all your required documents necessary for primary source credentialing.
All of these efforts translate to a greater amount of time that you can dedicate to those that need you most: Your patients.
For practice startups, Infrahealth® works closely with attorneys and accountants highly experienced in the medical industry to establish the legal structure best suited for each doctor, and0. to secure tax IDs necessary to initially submit and complete the credentialing submittals. We are equally proud of the working relationships that we have developed over the years, and that we maintain to date with hospitals and all insurance carriers, including professional liability providers, who facilitate the credentialing process.
Infrahealth® provides top level contract management that optimizes practice billing and accounts receivables from all payer groups based on a best case scenario contracting strategy.
As part of this integrated service, our Director of Contract Management and his staff, first scrutinize all available billed charges, as well as review the existing contract language along with your current fee schedules. Infrahealth® then follows up this research with the negotiation of rates for startup practices, and the negotiation/renegotiation of existing rates with all payors for established medical practices.
Infrahealth provides your practice with recommended payer allowables for each CPT (current procedure terminology) code used for billing within your specialty. Infrahealth® coordinates this effort with your in-house billing department, or with an outsourced billing company at your request.
It should be noted that numerous insurance carriers will take considerably more time to finalize your contracts, but Infrahealth® will provide you these payor updates as they become available.
