Did you just start in your job as a Medical Staff Professional, or Credentialing Staff? Did Human Resources tell you last year you are now responsible for Credentialing and Privileging, but they still can’t tell you what that means? Then Credentialing 101 is the class for you!

We will review introductory Credentialing processes and rationale behind why verification of application elements is required, review a sample application, and process sample verifications.

Topics include:

  • NCQA Credentialing Standards
  • TJC Credentialing Standards
  • WA State Credentialing requirements
  • Medicaid and Managed Care Credentialing requirements
