Do You Take Insurance? Which Ones?
Is this a question you get from patients/clients often? Does your answer invite them or turn them away to someone else? One of the most important aspects of running a successful business is insuring a continuous positive cash flow. While there are various payment methods you may choose to offer your patients/clients (i.e. cash, check or charge), insurance should definitely be a consideration at the top of the list.
By becoming credentialed (contracted with a carrier as an in-network provider) with various insurance carriers, you agree to accept reimbursement for services rendered to your patients/clients directly from that carrier *. We can help get you credentialed with any of the major insurance carriers/plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, and begin your ability to start insurance claims processing. Most provider types nationwide can be considered for credentialing with various insurance carriers across the nation. So why wait, contact us today!
Question: What is Medical Credentialing?
Answer: Medical Credentialing is the process of submitting your application to an insurance carrier for consideration to participate/contract with them as a new in-network provider.
Question: Why would I want to go through the process of becoming credentialed with different insurance companies?
Answer: Because if you are participating with different insurance carriers, you will be able to increase your patient/client base and your income/cash flow due to the fact that many patients/clients only go where their insurance is accepted!
Question: What process will I have to go through to become credentialed?
Answer: In most cases, you will need to fill out a lengthy application (which can vary with each insurance carrier) with information such as; schooling, licensing, experience, liability insurance coverage, languages spoken, etc on the application. Many carriers are working to streamline this process with the aide of the CAQH (Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare) Database.
Question: What if I don’t know how to fill out the forms, or don’t have the time to do it myself?
Answer: We will take care of the process for you completely!

* Some restrictions may not allow direct contracting for certain provider types with the major insurance carriers. Instead you are credentialed with other auxiliary networks who are connected to most of the major insurance carriers. The ability to become contracted with insurance carriers includes variables such as; provider type, practice location, specialties and other possible differentiating factors.
Colorado Medicaid Enrollment
All Colorado providers who are enrolled in the State Medicaid program must go through enrollment. The process to enroll has changed from a paper format to an online format requiring more information than before such as an individual AND group NPI if you are practicing under a business name. You also must submit the correct documentation for your application to be approved. This is now applicable to ALL provider types including mental health providers who normally only contract with the Behavioral Health Organizations (BHOs). If you are wanting help with this process, RUE can help, saving you the time and headache of making sure you get it correct the first time.
