Starting a new practice, adding a new provider, changing or expanding practice locations, or transitioning from a group to solo practice all necessitate enrolling with insurance companies to become a participating provider. Provider enrollment involves requesting participation, completing credentialing, submitting documents, and signing contracts, validating providers for billing insurance for services rendered.

Primary source verification ensures the validity of credentials like licensure and education by verifying their original sources. Healthcare facilities conduct this process to evaluate providers’ qualifications for granting privileges. Credentialing validates providers’ competence to deliver quality care within legal and regulatory frameworks, adhering to state laws, regulatory standards, and organizational policies. This meticulous process is critical for maintaining client safety and organizational licensure integrity.


Our expertise spans Credentialing, Enrollment, Medical Coding, Medical Billing, and Revenue Cycle Management across diverse specialties and organization types nationwide.


The decision whether to become an in-network provider for local payers is an important one for any provider. And like anything else, organizations must consider the pros and cons of obtaining and maintaining in-network provider status.

One important benefit to becoming a participating provider with an insurance company is an increase in referrals, and in essence, your revenue. As an in-network provider, the organization becomes listed in the payer’s provider directory, that which potentially generates an entirely new client base.

Individuals who have insurance coverage, more often than not, will seek an in-network provider in order to maintain lower out of pocket expenses. In addition, the insurance company itself, will direct patients to your practice via any individuals who call their insurance carrier for recommendations. Thus, a benefit for becoming a participating provider is the opportunity to obtain new patients for your practice.

Once the contract is generated, the rates are negotiable. You are not tied to the rates that they offer off the bat! Once, the rate is agreeable to the provider and if the rate offer makes sense for your organization, there is also the benefit of predictability of reimbursement. This makes for much easier financial planning and budgeting. Once an organization makes the final decision and agrees to the terms of the contract offered, and the offer is accepted, being in-network may simplify the complex claims process because billing would be governed by the terms of one mutually agreed-upon contract.

Completing enrollment, and re-enrollment applications for insurance companies, hospital staff privileges, and the paperwork list goes on, can be extremely time consuming and tedious. Application processing, tracking and diligent follow-up is difficult to manage, and many providers don’t realize that a successful provider enrollment process needs to be just as important as any other aspect of running a successful practice. By reducing provider enrollment timeframes, practices can generate incremental revenue. Using a third-party that specializes in enrollment, such as Emerge and See, can speed up the process by ensuring accuracy and efficiency of each application submittal, while costing far less than hiring someone internally to perform these functions.
