Provider credentialing, payer enrollment and privileging requirements for ASCs are continuously changing, according to PhysiciansPractice.
Three barriers to efficient credentialing processes:
1. The departure of a long-term credentialing expert can lead to delays, cash flow issues and noncompliance risks.
2. Fast expansion may leave practices unprepared to support a higher number of providers who need credentialing.
3. The various aspects of running an ASC can get in the way of credentialing processes for physicians who start their own private practices.
