Community Health Credentialing Specialist (CH-CS)

What is Credentialing? 

Credentialing is the process by which insurance carriers, facilities, and hospitals verify that a medical provider meets various quality and regulatory standards. Entities do this by reviewing items such as an applicant’s education, medical licensure, state and federal registrations, certifications, professional liability coverage, as well as many other documents. This time-consuming task requires precise attention to detail and follow through.  ArchPro’s credentialing team will ensure that your organization's credentialing files are completed with accuracy and in compliance with regulatory and accreditation standards.

Enrollment refers to the process of requesting participation in a health insurance network and submitting required documentation to third party payers to gain approval into payer networks and allow providers to bill for services.
