There’s no reason provider credentialing should take so long or cost so much

Obtaining the credentials needed to build a provider network is typically an expensive, time-consuming process because:

  • It can take weeks or months to mail out paper applications to the targeted providers, follow up by phone/email/mail/fax/carrier to get the information back, and finally enter it into your system by hand – one application and supporting document at a time.
  • The above process can cost anywhere from $50 to $200.
  • All of this work must be performed one provider at a time, so multiply everything you’re doing by the number of providers you’re trying to bring into the network.

Not anymore, however. SKYGEN USA leverages our proven Enterprise System technology to re-imagine the entire credentialing process. The SKYGEN USA Credentialing Service is offered on-demand, in a “one and done” centralized solution that makes credentialing fast, inexpensive, and convenient.

Now instead of costing $50 to $200 to obtain just one completed application, payers using the SKYGEN USA Credentialing Service can get an unverified provider file, including attachments, for less than $10. And the whole process takes just minutes rather than 30 to 90 days. That means better reliability and access for patients and members.

Providers like it because they only have to enter their credentialing information one time into a secure, centralized database rather than filling out repetitive forms and making copies of the same documents every time they’re asked to join a new network. They also like it because it’s free for them to use.

Payers like it because once the information is in there, it’s available on-demand for a nominal fee. They simply go to the portal, request the provider(s) they want, and in minutes it’s all ready to be loaded into their systems.

The SKYGEN USA Credentialing Service is available now to dental providers and dental plans. Learn more about it here
