Credentialing and Contracting
At your direction, IBA will obtain and complete all provider applications for insurance carriers in order to facilitate participation within a provider network. Applications will be requested from the insurers on your behalf. The applications will then be forwarded to you for review, verification and original signature prior to submission to the carrier. This process is offered not only as part of the initial set up but also for established groups who may have new members and those who utilize temporary providers. IBA will always keep your information updated for carriers who require updated licenses, malpractice documentation, etc.
We will assist in any negotiation or renegotiation necessary to maintain maximum reimbursement for our providers. The final decision is always made by the client.
Contract review is recommended on a regular basis in an effort to correlate increases in business practice expense with increased reimbursement for your services.
