  • *FREE* One and Done: Bringing Dental Provider Credentialing Into the 21st Century (2016)

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 09/27/2016


    If there's one way to make a complex, difficult, and time-consuming task worse, it's to ask someone to repeat that task multiple times. Yet that's exactly what happens to dentists when individual payers request credentialing information to build their dental networks. Dentists or their office managers invest days or even weeks of their time answering all the questions and providing information rather than focusing on patients. Then when it's finally done, here comes another request for the exact same information. It's no wonder payers often have to chase providers repeatedly to complete the application. This presentation will discuss the need for the dental industry to replace the current, repetitive, one-off model with a “one-and-done" centralized credentialing solution that will save time, save money and improve accuracy on both sides. Dentists will only have to provide their credentialing information once; the information will then be available instantly and on-demand to all payers, eliminating repetitive data entry. They will also receive email reminders when certain credentials are set to expire, such as dental licenses, insurance and DEA certificates, to ensure the information remains current.Payers will no longer have to send credentialing applications to each dentist and follow-up multiple times to get the information back; they will simply access the database and request information on the dentists they want for their networks. It's a streamlined, 21st century solution that benefits everyone involved.

    Full Voting Member: $0.00 | Non-Voting Member: $200.00 | Full Price: $400.00

    In 2005 LIMRA International and NADP conducted their first annual
    research study to survey group dental carriers' contact center performance.

    administration. It now focuses on carrier performance on such metrics as
    membership group maintenance, ID cards processing and network
    maintenance–administrative benchmarking metrics were added in 2009.
    The current business environment—high price sensitivity and health care
    reform requirements—highlights the importance of effective management of
    the administrative components of dental plans.
    It is increasingly important for carriers not only to meet the industry
    standards in high quality customer care, but also effectively differentiate
    themselves from competitors.

    Nearly 2 million people enrolled in standalone dental plans during the 2016 ACA Open Enrollment period. This growing market is different from the traditional group insurance market: consumers are spending their own money and, as a result, they value lower premiums over large networks. Narrowing your network by focusing on the providers with the best fee and utilization profiles can help attract and retain price-sensitive members.

    During this webinar, we will discuss:

    1. An overview of narrow networks on exchanges
    2. Using a targeted approach to select dentists that best fit your profile
    3. Designing plans that will improve your prospects of attracting new exchange members

    • Annual Fee $3,000, Implementation Fee (one-time) $2,000, Annual Provider Fee $4.50/3.50 per Standard/Allied provider per year. DMD and DDS are considered “Standard” providers.

    Is breakdown of dentists per state available that use CAQH?

    • Yes, Will send updated list shortly to NADP to distribute.

    • The Annual and Implementation Fees are required to access provider data through CAQH ProView. However, a single provider can generate their individual provider application and save as a PDF or print to share with plans.

    • Providers have been receptive to CAQH's targeted dental outreach efforts but plan engagement is a must for providers to see value in using ProView.

    How can I see a list of participating plans to see if this would be a worthwhile time investment for my providers?

    In what states are providers currently participating? We are based only in MI.
