Credentialing of healthcare professionals

Credentialing is the process of obtaining and reviewing documentation to determine participation status in a health plan. The documentation may include, but not be limited to, the applicant’s education, training, clinical privileges, experience, licensure, accreditation, certifications, professional liability insurance, malpractice history and professional competence. Generally, the terms credentialing and recredentialing include the review of the information and documentation collected, as well as verification that the information is accurate and complete.

Please note:
