Navigating Credentialing and Enrollment with Apaana Healthcare which helped the Client’s Revenue increase by 50%


A mental health practice based in California faced significant challenges with the credentialing and enrollment process, which are critical for ensuring smooth operations and consistent cash flow. The owner, new to the intricacies of credentialing, had previously engaged a different company for these services. Unfortunately, this company failed to manage the process effectively, leading to missed re-enrollment dates and subsequent cash flow disruptions. Seeking a reliable solution, the practice turned to Apaana Healthcare for assistance.


Previous Credentialing Failures: The prior company’s inability to handle credentialing caused the practice to miss re-enrollment dates with various payers. This failure resulted in substantial delays in reimbursements and disrupted the practice’s cash flow.


Lack of Expertise: The practice owner lacked the expertise in credentialing, making it challenging to navigate the complex requirements and timelines associated with payer enrollment.


Rebuilding Trust: After the previous negative experience, the owner was cautious and required a trusted partner who could ensure a smooth credentialing process.


Time Constraints: With the demands of managing a growing practice, the owner had limited time to dedicate to the credentialing process.


Payor Selection: Choosing the right health plans that were most prominent in his service area was crucial for maximizing patient access and revenue potential.


Administrative Burden: Managing patient eligibility and benefits, as well as applying for DEA registration, added to the administrative workload.
