As a dental professional, when you think of dental provider credentialing or re-credentialing, your first though is likely a resigned: Ugh. It’s not a difficult task, but it is tedious, and for most dental teams, it’s a huge administrative headache.

That’s why we think you’ll love the credentialing solution DCS has created. 

Our automated credentialing services alleviate the administrative headache that comes with managing the credentialing process. We’ll take care of it for you and your team, and you’ll find live updates about your providers’ status on your personal digital dashboard. 

There are a few especially awesome features to our automated dental credentialing services, and we’re eager to share them with you. Let’s get into it and see which feature is your favorite…

1. Monitoring and tracking of critical expiration dates

As you know, when it comes to credentialing, you’re always on a deadline. Even after the paperwork is submitted, it can take 90 to 180 days to be credentialed.

And when it’s time to re-credential, the insurance provider will notify you that your re-up is coming up, then give you a deadline for submitting paperwork to be re-approved. Although this typically takes less than 90 days, it can still take a month or two.

Managing these dates and timelines can be nerve-wracking, because the stakes are so high — there’s no room for error. If your credentials expire because the re-credentialing deadline was missed, then you can’t bill for patients covered by said insurance company until your credentialing is finally approved. 

But when you use our automated credentialing services, we’re tracking these deadlines for you, and we will send in your providers’ credentialing applications with time to spare. This will ensure they are approved before their current credentials expire, without any lulls in billing or doubts about whether their status is still valid.

This way, they can bill patients covered by this insurance company the way they always have.

2. Easy-to-use personal dashboard with 24/7 access

When it comes to any technology or service, DCS is all about a positive user experience, and automated credentialing is no exception. 

It’s no fun to sign up for a service, and then have difficulties when learning how to work with it. You won’t contend with that when using the DCS automated credentialing services. 

When you sign up for DCS Credentialing, you’ll be granted access to a user-friendly digital dashboard that lets you view the status of your dentists’ credentialing at any time. Unlike the traditional credentialing process, you’ll know where you are at every step of the credentialing process. From inside the platform, you can view real-time notes and statuses for each individual payer.

Imagine: No more worrying and wondering about where things stand. All you have to do is log in to review the status. You’ll know exactly where the process is as soon as your dashboard appears— it’s that simple.

And while your credentialing process is completely handled by our experts, your team can focus on other necessary dental administrative tasks and offer more attention to your patients. 

3. Everything you need for high-speed approval is included in DCS Credentialing

When it comes to the nitty-gritty of what’s needed to credential your dentists, DCS’ services have you covered. We will ensure the following information is included in your applications: 

  • Location of your practice or practices
  • State medical license(s)
  • Malpractice insurance policies that show a current date of coverage
  • Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Certificate
  • Controlled and Dangerous Substances (CDS) Certificate
  • Business documentation (ex. Taxpayer or Employee ID number, ID number change)
  • NPI2 Enrollment – to identify the specific dental provider involved in the care, ensuring that claims are processed accurately and promptly

If anything is missing from your application packet, one of our experts will reach out to you to fill the gaps, and you’ll be able to see everything in your personal dashboard, like we mentioned in #2. 

And remember that we offer a subscription service, so our experts can handle re-credentialing your dentists well before the expiration date, so there won’t be any delays in their ability to bill for insured patients.
