Managed Care Credentialing: Compliance Strategies for Health Plans, CVOs, and Delegated Entities

Amy M. Niehaus, CPMSM, CPCS, MBA

Available October 2019

The role of the MSP is expanding to include payer enrollment and delegated credentialing responsibilities for managed care organizations. Traditionally siloed, MSPs are now beginning to take on both responsibilities, which means they must learn the nuances of managed care credentialing as well as the regulatory and accreditation requirements of NCQA, CMS, and URAC.

Managed Care Credentialing: Compliance Strategies for Health Plans, CVOs, and Delegated Entities provides the answers to MSPs’ inevitable questions as they begin to manage the tasks of payer enrollment and delegated credentialing. Author Amy M. Niehaus guides readers through each payer’s requirements, the differences between hospital and managed care credentialing, and how to help their organization establish delegated credentialing agreements and prepare for audits.

As new and existing MSP responsibilities begin to collide, this resource also outlines ways MSPs can modify their current processes to reduce duplication of efforts and develop a comprehensive and compliant managed care credentialing program. Whether you are new to managed care credentialing or are taking on delegated credentialing responsibilities, this book will help you:

  • Learn the regulatory and accreditation requirements related to managed care credentialing
  • Streamline the provider enrollment process through delegation
  • Meet your organizational goals of compliance, operational efficiency, cost savings, and practitioner satisfaction
  • Identify the differences between hospital and managed care credentialing
