Our stringent credentialing and performance guidelines include careful scrutiny of prospective providers’ curriculum vitae, current unrestricted state licenses, work samples, Worker’s Compensation authorization number or equivalent, Board certifications, and Professional Liability and Malpractice insurance confirmation sheets and more.
IME Physicians are credentialed in accordance with URAC CORE Organizational Quality standards using primary source verification by our National Network Development Group. ICRS obtains the following information from providers during the credentialing process: curriculum vitae, provider agreement, current unrestricted state licenses, sample reports, Worker’s Compensation authorization number or equivalent, Board certifications, and Professional Liability and Malpractice insurance confirmation sheet.
Once the provider agreement is complete and all required documentation is received, the credentialing department begins the verification process in earnest. We confirm all data using the following authentication resources: ABMS Board Certified Docs, American Osteopathic Association and the American Board of Podiatric Surgery to verify Board Certification; National Practitioners Databank to check for sanctions; State-specific Workers Comp Board websites for authorization numbers; verify state licenses; and other sources as needed.
Twice each year, our credentialing team reviews all providers to ensure that no new sanctions have been implemented against any of our doctors. Physicians are re-credentialed every two years or upon expiration of a credential. Physician status is monitored 24/7 via the National Practitioner Data Bank and Continuous Query service.
Our IME credentialing staff will modify and customize workflows to fit seamlessly into your current practices.
