The Difference between Privileging and Credentialing

The Difference between Privileging and Credentialing

You can often hear that hospitals use the term credentialing while making decisions regarding its practitioners and granting privileges. These two terms are related, but still quite different.

Credentialing and Privileging

Basically, the term credentialing means the verification of physician’s education, experience and training. Hospitals may also extent the term to include evaluation of collected data and making a decision about a physician. In this case, hospitals say that a physician has been credentialed as a staff member.

There are many types of credentials, but three main ones are used by all hospitals – licensure and re-licensure, college or university degrees, postgraduate work, certificates and awards. Some hospitals also require a proof that the physician has completed either a defined number of certain patient care treatments under supervision of a professional or an accredited training program for the activity he/she wants to perform. Hospitals perform a thorough check of all physician background information, and can search for signatures of supervising professional, documentation of special training and education, log book’s recordings, etc. To give credentials, hospitals also check fellowship or residency training, board certification, and competency-based education.

Privileging is something different. The term means that a physician has been allowed to perform certain activities in a healthcare facility. It’s important to understand the differences between privileges and membership. Membership means that a physician is a member of medical staff and can attend meetings, vote and receive benefits of the membership. There are also requirements that come with membership, such as attending patients in the department, paying dues, etc. Privileges are required in order to provide treatment to patients.

The processes of privileging and credentialing are defined at hospital’s bylaws and in policies and procedures. Getting credentials and privileges is a necessary part of providing services to patients. Most of the time, the first step in the privileging process is to get an application for privileges. It’s quite common for hospitals to create application packets that include the list of data required to get privileges. The physician submits a list of the requested privileges and proves that his/her credentials are real. The main task of credentialing is to verify the physician’s qualification. Sometimes hospitals can grant temporary approval of privileges, while the credentials are being verified.

Credentialing process is usually held by a credentialing committee, which can also grant privileges. The credentialing committee consists of representatives of physicians who have privileges in that healthcare facility, and they make recommendations about the applicant to the governing body (for example, the medical staff executive committee). Different hospitals may have different committees. They can be composed of medical staff with administrative representation, or be more of an inter-professional group.

In some hospitals, staff is required to take care of the administrative process of credentialing and privileging processes, and then they should send information to the administrative body for a final decision. Besides, demand for credentialing has created many private credentialing services. These services usually help process application packages, verify credentials and send information to the organization.

How To Effectively Manage Credentialing Process

How To Effectively Manage Credentialing Process

Ensuring that your providers are credentialed is the crucial part of saving the practice. From education background to clinical research to board certifications, a lot of data must be collected and verified for each physician to confirm that they meet necessary qualifications of a healthcare specialist.

Have a look at the new recruit’s data

When you’re recruiting, try to align the credentialing process and the recruitment. Most employment contracts are built on the fact that the employer should get credentialed, thus if the physician doesn’t get credentialed, that’s a disaster for all parties. The leader of the hospital is 6 months behind in hiring a new physician and reputation is ruined for bringing a provider who can’t meet the standards. The new physician may have relocated the job and waiting for a paycheck that will never come. Besides, he can even sue the group for failing to provide the promised job. And when providers don’t get credentials, private insurance companies, Medicaid or Medicare can refuse to pay for certain procedures, reducing your incomes. Therefore, its leader’s responsibility to check all physician’s references, background information and demand explanation for any questionable data before offering the job.

By reviewing all gaps in employment, malpractice issues and references you can make sure the physician won’t have problems with the credentialing process. Sometimes, credentialing committees ask for additional information and explanations. It can be asking simple questions about any given reference, or reviewing malpractice suits. The committee can also send documents to a third party for an independent check.

Keep all information in one place

Get credentialing software to keep all information secured inone place and allow staff to view the credentialing process and tasks that need to be completed. With provider’s data and supporting forms connected in a single accessible record, your staff can rapidly provide and update their information. Besides, many different credentialing programs notify you about licenses that are near expiration, so you can proactively manage re-credentialing process as well.

Hospital credentialing is not the easiest process to complete, but at least it is more serious and organized now than it was before. However, new physicians still have to provide all applications and forms during the process. And hospitals must protect their patients. It’s their responsibility (even though they have to rely on physician references), and hospitals can get sued over poor credentialing or end up in a court when a physician has its privileges removed.

What are the chairman’s responsibilities during credentialing process?

It’s chairman responsibility to investigate all the skeletons. If you’re recruiting a physician who has some questions on the records, devote some time and get all the details explained, so that you won’t have to fight problems during the credentialing process. If there is something that looks like regret, now it’s time to search for another recruit. But if you still believe that the physician provides quality care, spend some time discussing all the problems with the credential committee to see what they need in order to finish the credentialing process.

How To Find A New Provider?

How To Find A New Provider?

If you want to change a doctor, you should go through a seemingly simple process – leave one doctor, find and see another one. When you think you have enough reasons for changing providers, you’ll want to be sure you get the perfect one. If you don’t do everything the right way, you may have a lot of headaches when it comes to finding a person who can meet your needs.

Things to do before you leave your current provider

If finding a new doctor is not mandatory and just your choice, perform a little search to be sure there are candidates that suit your needs. Some doctors don’t take Medicaid patients, others don’t treat new patients. Skillful specialists are booked months in advance, and you need to spend some time finding a new doctor before leaving another behind. Don’t forget to schedule a visit with your current doctor. Take notes and ask a report on recurring and current conditions. If possible, take a new provider with you. You can also explain reasons for leaving – even in big cities the community of specialists is small and you don’t want any rumors about your hospital.

Your leaving doctor should give you all copies of medical records that relate to chronic or current problems of the patients, which can be useful for a new doctor. Besides, it’s required by HIPAA government policies that you can access this information. However, there are different laws in each state about health records, and how they should be carried out. Besides, if your doctor prefers EMR (electronic record keeping), then you can ask your new doctor to use the same system and alter the process. Once you’ve had a conversation with a leaving doctor and collected all copies, you can start to get a new one.

Visiting the new provider

Assuming that you have a replacement for the leaving doctor, there are necessary steps to develop the right relationships with the provider. Make an appointment with the new doctor and talk generally – it’s better than talk while having sick patients or discussing problems at work.

You already have all the copies, but it’s a good practice to have a second set of the records so that you have one set and your new doctor has the second set. If possible, send the copies as soon as possible and don’t give them during your first meeting – it’s better to have more time to talk rather than to read documents.

Think about the questions you want to ask your new doctor and write them down. It’s up to you if you want to tell the new provider why you left the other one behind. If you decide to share this information, remember that it’s a foundation for the new relationships. Discuss everything politely and respectively. You need a professional relationship, and that’s going to be the start.

Once you work with your new doctor, remember that you need to invest a lot in the relationships. Your new provider will help your patients, so it’s your responsibility to provide them with quality health care.

Main Aspects of the Affordable Care Act

Aspects of the Affordable Care ActMain Aspects of the Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, is the reform law that improves and significantly expands access to curbs and care spending through taxes and regulations. The main focus of the Affordable Act is to improve the quality of health insurance and health care, provide more Americans with access to affordable insurance, regulate the whole industry, and reduce health care spending in the country. There are hundreds of different provisions in the law that addresses multiple aspects of the healthcare crisis. It’s understandable that you may not want to read the entire law, so below you can find the most important facts you need to know about ObamaCare to ensure you don’t pay additional fees and get affordable coverage.

According to the Act, Americans who make less than 400% of the FPL (federal poverty level) will qualify assistance subsidies. There are three forms in which the assistance comes: cost sharing for reduced out-of-pockets costs, premium tax credits for reduced premium costs, and both CHIP and Medicaid. All in all, the Act contains more than thousand pages about new reforms for health care and insurance industries in order to reduce health care costs and provide affordable insurance for Americans. However, even though the law is long and complex, first 200 pages contain the most interesting information

Before the Affordable Care Act, anybody who had been sick in the past (a pre-existing condition) could be simply denied treatment or coverage, or be charged much more because of the gender, or be dropped somewhere in the middle of the treatment because of a small mistake in the application. Moreover, you had literally no way to appeal insurance company rules. Now, Americans have a larger number of benefits, protections, and rights concerning their insurances

In 2013, almost 45 million Americans didn’t have a health insurance, which is 16% of the population. Those were working families who just couldn’t allow the insurance. ObamaCare’s main aim is to help those individuals to get insurances by offering cost assistance and expanding Medicaid eligibility. As a result, at the end of 2014 only 13% of Americans couldn’t obtain the insurance. By 2015, the rate was below 10%

The Act dramatically reforms Medicare. For instance, one of the changes is offering Medicare recipients the same rights, protections, and benefits as others, and reforming its system such as cut off redundant aspects. Remember that Medicare is not the part of the marketplace, and if you have Part A or C you’re covered

The Affordable Care Act requires large employers to provide their full-time workers with health coverage. Non-exempt Americans have to keep essential coverage the whole year or pay fees every month they go uninsured. The minimal coverage you need to have to avoid fees is the minimum essential coverage that can be obtained during the enrollment period

Simply put, now everybody can get insurance regardless of previous health conditions. However, there is one exception: individuals with those health plans that were purchased before March 23, 2010, and have a pre-existing health condition don’t have to cover costs related to their illness

How To Choose The Best Physician Credentialing Software

Credentialing SoftwareHow To Choose The Best Physician Credentialing Software

The current shift from fee for service to fee for quality has attracted bigger audience to health management. Those healthcare organizations who want to ensure efficient clinical delivery base should have started consolidating clinical providers at higher rates. Hence, new credentialing software is needed to handle all the complexities of multi-provider, disturbed, quality driven reimbursement model. The proper credentialing software has to offer are venue-centric solution and help healthcare organizations meet their financial and operational needs that healthcare management requires.

24/7 accessibility

Before buying credentialing software, go through all its features and evaluate if it can perform everything you need. At the very least, it should have 24/7 accessibility, so you can get your credentialing data at any time. All information should be stored in the cloud where healthcare managers can identify where they are in the credentialing process and ensure you aren’t losing revenue on delayed applications. Moreover, being in a cloud means a reduction in capital expenditures since there is no need for another software, servers and hardware to subsidize the credentialing system.

Financial performance and payer operational metrics

Another important feature is institutional, financial performance and payer operational metrics. It means that leaders and managers of a healthcare institution can identify how the facility is performing from the financial and operational perspective. It also allows evaluating provider’s individual performance. As any leader knows, understanding performance of providers is the first step of improving financial performance.

Generated work list capabilities

As a leader of a healthcare facility, you should require system generated, flexible work lists that your staff can use to meet their credentialing demands. No more calendars and post-in notes that remind you about stages of the credentialing process. The efficient credentialing software will help you go through each step quickly and without mistakes. Besides, healthcare leaders can easily evaluate the work of their providers and establish different metrics.

Assurance tools and mechanisms

The ability to track and monitor credentialing processes of the providers is a necessary feature of credentialing software. Quality monitoring and staff training should be ongoing, don’t just leave it be.

Productivity tracking tools

Credentialing software should be able to track statistics and productivity metrics. What is your staff doing on a weekly, daily, or hourly basis? Are these just miss-guided, pointless efforts? The ability to track productivity metrics makes providers more efficient and ensures you’re not losing revenue.

Combined credentialing concepts and revenue cycle

Understanding financial impact of the credentialing process helps meet the demands of health management initiatives. And when you know the impact, you’ll see if you’re losing revenue because providers aren’t credentialed properly.

Revenue management

Credentialing software should give you suggestions that help ensure profits and sustainable growth of the facility. Keep all the processes streamlined and build a close network to keep your facility going.

Investing time and money in advanced credentialing software is always a good idea. Otherwise, you risk facing credentialing denials and lost revenue.

Physician Criteria For Privileging

Physician Criteria For PrivilegingPhysician Criteria For Privileging

For many years, hospitals throughout the country have granted privileges using so-called laundry lists. Laundry list or privilege list is a detailed checklist that shows procedures and treatments that physicians can request to treat patients or perform these procedures. The American College of Surgeons was the first who recommended laundry lists because many physicians had not finished an approved residency programs in a certain specialty area. The laundry list has gone through modifications but remains in use to the present time.

Nowadays, almost all physicians who apply for privileges have completed a training program and the original use of laundry lists is no longer relevant. However, even though the privileging process is easier now than before, laundry lists are a common approach to the delineation of clinic privileges in many hospitals.

Laundry lists include not only procedures and treatments available at the hospitals, but also criteria that must be met. Thus, physicians check off procedures they would like to be allowed to perform and go through criteria for each procedure. When using the list, physicians don’t have to provide documentation of experience and training to show that they are qualified for all privileges. Physicians are allowed to choose which criteria they can meet before applying for privileges

Those hospitals that don’t have laundry lists use criteria-based privileging. It combines predefined criteria with well-defined, realistic privileges. The term core privileges mean clinical activities within a certain specialty that any actively practicing, properly trained physician with good peer recommendations would be able to perform.

At hospitals who use the criteria-based privileging system, those physicians who meet predefines criteria can apply for privileges, and those who proved additional training and experience can apply for noncore privileges. Special privileges almost always correspond to one of the following:
•    volume-sensitive diagnoses
•    new advances in technology
•    high-risk treatments

If a physician meets required criteria to request privileges are supported by references attesting physician’s competence, privileges can granted.  If a physician requires additional privileges, a separate verification procedure is required. The same is true for performing unusual treatments and procedures – for example, what would otherwise be a basic procedure, like a surgery, with a robot instead of a doctor require the separate privileging procedure

Physicians who can’t meet predefined criteria in a particular specialty may still be qualified for limited privileges by providing honest evidence that they possess proper training and experience to perform the requested procedures or treatments.  For example, a family physician can apply for a specific set of privileges on the obstetric list, for example, to perform the cesarean section. But to get the privileges, that physician would have to show to the hospital credentialing committee that he/she has required training and experience that is necessary to get privileges and perform cesarean sections

One of the main advantages to the criteria-based privileging approach is consistency. All physicians are asked to meet the same standards and prove that their education, experience, training, etc., are suitable for the privileges they’d like to get.

What’s The Difference Between Credentialing And Contracting?

Credential ContractWhat’s The Difference Between Credentialing And Contracting?

If you’re a health department that wants to start a billing program or is going to expand, you have probably heard the terms Contracting and Credentialing before. These are very important steps that you have to complete, or you can’t bill private insurance companies for services your hospital provides, losing a huge part of revenue. But what these two terms mean and where should you start?

The main points of credentialing

Local health facilities can start billing insurance companies only after they’ve got credentials. Credentialing is a process that private insurance companies use to verify, obtain, access, and validate a healthcare facility in order to ensure it’s a reliable place and for liability purposes.

The start of the credentialing process, create a file folder for an insurance company. Different companies require different documents and forms, and folders will save your time and help you to simplify and organize the process for every payer. To choose the best insurance companies among many others, try to create a survey and ask your clients about their companies to see which are used the most. The most common ones should be among the first ones.

After you have created the list of companies to get credentials from, you’ll need to get acquainted with the requirements for every company. Each insurance company has a web page where they state all necessary forms and requirements. From there you’ll get all relevant information, provide all documents and fill out all forms. Submit everything you get, and you should get credentials within 180 days. And when you’re credentialing, it’s time to think about contracting with companies.

The main points of contracting

Contracting refers to the process of creating agreements with private insurance companies to become one network with them. It includes establishing services covered, rates, payments, and other information with each company. Every company requires a separate contract.

If you find credentialing process hard, then you should know that contracting is much harder. You will have to negotiate a lot of things with all insurance companies and your success depends on talking to the right person within each organization. You can try to speak to directors and administrators who have some useful contacts to make the process easier.

In today’s world of revenue cycles and health insurance, it’s important to remember that improper credentialing may lead to serious consequences, such as denied or delayed reimbursement for services provided. Even worse, it may lead to consequences in terms of compliance violations, which means criminal charges and monetary damages.

Some payers take a long time to get to your case and you may face multiple delays. They arise from the non-standard language some organizations use. Sometimes you will have to work with payers to revise the language. It will require even more time.

Healthcare payers often don’t know much when it comes to understanding what billing services what local organizations provide. So, it’s always a good idea to be persistent and remind them from time to time that it’s very beneficial to contract with your facility.

How to Avoid the Most Common Credentialing Mistakes?

Credentialing servicesHow to Avoid the Most Common Credentialing Mistakes?

Credentialing process is a necessary part of a successful physician practice with steady cash flow and patient referrals. Avoiding these common credentialing mistakes will make the process move more quickly and efficiently.

Providing incomplete information

The most common mistake many physicians make is a lack of attention to small details. Errors and mistakes in application lead to delays and even denials. Different healthcare facilities may have different application forms, but typically you need to submit your phone, tax, address, services provided, contact information, employment history, copies of licensure, patient profile and legal troubles regarding your practice if you have any.

What can you do? Thoroughly check your application a couple of times to certify its accuracy before sending it to the credential committee. Getting everything right the first time means you get credentialed much faster.

Not following up

Be prepared that your plans can be backlogged with the credentialing process. Do everything you can to confirm that your application was successfully received and know where it is. If something sounds like complete nonsense to you, ask questions and wait for the response. Many physicians have no idea of where in the process their application is and what each stage means. Make sure you have no more questions before accepting the answer.

Follow up from time to time and don’t forget to make notes. E-mail your contacts, phone if you need to and check all web directories. Never call to explain delays or notify about updates. The only way for you to find out something about the application is to follow it up regularly. Make it a routine and keep up until your application is approved. Remember that you’re the one who is concerned about the process.

Don’t allow CAQH lapse

If you already have a CAQH profile, you know that it should be updated regularly. Always keep up-to-date all contact information and re-attest your data. You should act proactively when you receive an updated insurance, license, DEA or any other document and get everything loaded to your profile with new expiration dates. It will help avoid delays in the process of re-credentialing.

Not knowing the standards and guidelines

Application forms in Medicaid, Medicare and other government health programs are completely different. They all have standard forms that must be appropriately filled out and sent to the intermediary. These applications, then reviewed against very strict standards. Many physicians make the same mistakes in the following:
• Using outdated/irrelevant applications
• Using incorrect forms
• Submitting incomplete applications
• Submitting to the wrong intermediary
• Not submitting required forms
• Not using verifiable practice location as a practice address
• Not signing the application in all fields

Not giving enough time

Many physicians start too late and this is a reason for their failure. You really need to give yourself at least 3 months. The responsiveness of your application will be determined by the motivation to add a new doctor to a team and the workload.

What’s Important To Know About The Credentialing Process?

Credentialing ServiceWhat’s Important To Know About The Credentialing Process?

Physician’s credentials – certificates, diplomas and licenses on the wall – tell patients about their professional skills and qualification to treat them. In the US, professional organizations, state and local governments establish the credentials that physicians need to provide their services.

Practitioners are credentialed and then privileged – healthcare facilities verify education, license, and qualification – upon hire and then every two years. Physicians can get privileges after thorough evaluation and verifications of the training and education they have presented. Privileges allow physicians to give the care treatment and services by the facility to the patients.

The most important thing to know about the credentialing process is that there is no national, standardized system for credentialing physicians. Each state and local government is responsible for deciding what physicians have to provide to get credentialed. Those credentials may vary quite a lot from state to state and among different disciplines.

Patients should note that certificates, licenses, and regulations can’t guarantee effective, safe treatment from any physician – complementary or conventional. Tell your physician the complementary health approaches you prefer. Tell them everything you do to take care of yourself. This will ensure safe and coordinated care.

Apart from credentialing, you could also hear about certifying and licensing. Credentialing is the broader term that refers to doctor’s license, certification, or education. Professional organizations give certifications, government agencies grant licenses. Note that being certified or licensed doesn’t mean being qualified.

The vast majority of states use the approaches below to credential doctors:
•    Title licensure: requires doctors to obtain credentials prior to using a title
•    Mandatory licensure: requires doctors to have licenses to treat patients
•    Registration: requires doctors to provide information about professional education, experience, and training

To get a license, you should carefully read requirements of each state. Among everything else, they may ask you to:
•    meet certification requirements
•    graduate from a certain program
•    pass exams
•    Complete a training program

The services you’re allowed to provide also vary from state to state. For example, some states don’t allow acupuncturists to recommend diets to patients, while others recommend doing it.

Some professional organizations offer additional certification examinations. Certifications qualify doctors for local or state licensure. For instance, in some states, doctors who don’t have an M.D., have to be certified by the National Certification Commission if they want to be licensed.

Educational programs in the US train physicians and prepare them for future certification. The Department of Education authorizes specific organizations to accredit training programs for doctors.

The credentialing processing time varies from one organization to another. Sometimes plans take 6 months to complete the process and then 50 days for contracting, while others need 3 months to finish everything. When you submit documents for contracts, enrollment or follow-up on your application, it’s important to keep track of the process by utilizing fax logs, certified mail, and documenting all conversations. Once the credentialing process is complete, you will be offered a contract and will be able to treat patients in the facility.
